    I am using the internal test tones on the Lex MC-1. I turn 1 sub off and calibrate to 75db's to all other speakers then turn it off and turn other sub on and calibrate to 75db's with spl meter.When I turn both on the SPL meter reads 81db's.Should I calibrate each sub to 69db's so when I turn both on it reads 75db's or what? Thanks!

    Steve,

    Since both subs run at the same time when you use your system, calibrate with both of them on. Simple!

    Of course, you have to make sure the two sub's levels are matched to each other as well...
