    I just calibrated my reciever's (Onkyo 777) sound levels using Avia GTHT and found that my bass was about 6 DB too high. I haven't calibrated it before using Avia, just the internal tones and have never noticed it to be a problem. Lately I've been noticing what sounds like a little too much bass. Is that possible? I used Avia and found that the receiver's test tones disagreed by a decibal or two on most channels, but was 6DB too loud for the sub. Is this normal for a receiver. Otherwise I love the receiver. I've had it for about five years and have enjoyed its sound and user friendliness. It has kept me satisfied enough to keep from upgrading.

    Ithink there is a 6db anomally with Avia on it, from things I have read in the past.

    I think it is the test tones that are "right" perhaps?

    Well I swear it was here. But I did a search and didn't come up with it. It was -vs- internal test tones too.
    Ok, maybe I dreamed it. Pretty sure though, but of course I may have it confused as well.


    Maybe one of these threads:

    Do a search on Avia 6db Subwoofer, or something like that in Speakers and Subwoofers here.


    I may just be confused though I admit.
