    lets see start with the basics,you nee radio shack sound meter,video essentials,you set all your speakers except the sub to 75db,and the sub to 80 db that gives the a little extra kick,especialy when listerening at lower levels.after you do that we can talk about an EQ.gotta get the basics done first.what you got for gear?
    hey guys look at me given advice,you come a long way baby

    Consider getting the Avia test disc instead of Video Essentials. The Avia disc is supposed to give a better calibration based on your receiver's bass management settings.
