    My home theater consists of Definitive pro-monitor's 80 as main & rear speakers, Definitive pro-sub 80, Definitive pro-center 100, Pioneer's DVD 535K, Yamaha's AV Receiver RX-V795a.
    I've set-up my system using RadioShacks SPL at 85 db & the LFE is set at 80 db.
    Now the individual frequency readings are
    30Hz - 71 db
    40Hz - 85 db
    50Hz - 83 db
    60Hz - 81 db
    100Hz- 77 db
    125Hz- 80 db
    Please let me know how to fine tune these settings.

    If you are trying to "flatten" the response, then you would need an equalizer.

    Thanks Julian. Taht is precisely what I am trying to achieve. Can't I do that without an equaliser ?

    Unfortunately no as the speaker and room have their own interactions so you will need an EQ regardless.

    Shroff,
    Those numbers are pretty good. My room is much worse with dips and peaks differing by 15 dB.

    You'll also need to check at many more frequencies. I suggest you download the demo program of Spectraplus atwww.spectraplus.com and check with that.
    Cheers
