    Question how do you generate the "HZ" signals for calibrating? I have seperates and it does not generate these.

    I do have the different disk S&V and video essentials

    If I calibrate my subs new SVS 20-39+s with the Samson

    S1000 amp using these I can get the subs to 85 db with no problem.

    I also tested with the THX intro on TFM and it pegged

    the meter set at 100. The air volume and rush was just

    incredable.

    thanks all help greatly appreciated

    The goal of calibration is to ensure that the subwoofer level is balanced with the mains (in terms of SPL). When you play the test tones on VE, make sure that each speaker (mains, surrounds, sub, etc.) reproduces the sound at the same level. If you have your receiver's dial set to "00" when you calibrate, you'll calibrate to reference levels (75 dB with VE, 85dB with Avia).
