    When calibraing your sub with the RS meter(I have digital model), should I set my sub to the same level as my other speakers or higher? I read on one of these forums that the RS meter reads at least 3db low. Is that right? Thanks for any advice.

    Most people seem to calibrate the sub a little hotter than the other speakers..... mine is typically 7-10 db hot (or more) according to what I'm watching/listening to......... We tend to like the added rumble of a hotter setting....
