    Hello all,,,,,,,,

    I am wondering what is a proper level for each of the fl-fr-sw-sr-sl and center to be at?

    I know its a dumb question.

    The max is +12. I have fr and fl set at +6 now.

    Where can I buy that "Avia"?? disc at??

    Thanks Jim

    You will need a Radio Shack SPL meter ($35, Analog) and a copy of AVIA or Video Essentials, should be available for $20 or so at any DVD specialty shop.

    You can get by without the disc for the time being using your internal test tones of your receiver. You will want to calibrate all channels to 75db with your SPL meter @ reference volume (00db).

    Do a search for speaker calibration on this site, you will find all you need to know.

    There's no "one" proper/universal level for receivers, it all depends on room acoustics, size, speaker type, speaker sensitivity etc. The proper level for your HT is one where all the speakers are within 1db of each other, therefore you'll need the Avia (or similar) test disc and an SPL meter (available at Radio Shack).
    You can try DVD Planet or Amazon for the disc.
