    All I can say is
    WOW.
    I calibrated my system today just using the test tones from my receiver at 75dB with the Rat Shack SPL meter and I must say, it sounds ten times better. I am going to pick up Sound and Vision's calibration disc to tweak it further (I will probably get even better results). I can't believe I went this long unbalanced... everything is so smooth.

    That is what I said after I set mine up too. I am still mucking about with my sub woofer tho, I seem to like it way hot, maybe I am just deaf one the low end.

    Amen on the sub level, if I put it at the same db level as my other speakers-it sounds way too weak.

    Hey wait till you start fiddling with speaker placement to get a nicely redered 3D stereo image out of the fronts. Whoopie!
    And for the record I do not run my sub high at all. Reference all the way and my front speakers are way the hell out in the room for imaging [​IMG].
