sorry for the "newbieness" of this question, but in light of hearing the analog SPLs were fading, i went to a local RS and invested in one. i cannot really do much about the placing of my speakers or the SVS now (seeing as the wires and speakers are nailed in and i will have to cover the holes with toothpaste ). i live in a dorm. but for next year in either the frat house or apartment, i'd like someone to tell me how to calibrate my system please! i do not own AVIA or other calibration DVDs (soon to own...), but if someone would please explain how to calibrate assuming i have one of these it'd be great. i'll save this post in archives for next year... thanks in advance to all! -thomas ------------------ -Thomas Click here to visit my webpage.
