    Hello All

    Can any one give me some ideas,tips,help,assistant in tuning my Subwoofer Velodyne CT150.

    Bacground:

    Sunwoofer is housed in a cabinet.The subwoofer is an active sub build in crossover and amplifier.

    My front speakers are Tannoy R1 and Surround Tannoy R2 and Center speaker is Tannoy Center Speaker.

    I have 100 inch Grey Hawk Screen and the projector used is NEC HT1000.

    Iam not getting any tight boom at all.Iam very sad and disoppointment as i the velodyne subwoofer manual does not help me to tune my systems.

    One cable is going out form Subwoofer to my Denon 3300 Av receiver.

    How can i get my systems tuned
    Any help is higly appreciated.

    Regards

    Sounds like you need to graph out your room's low frequency response.
    Burn some low frequency 1/6 to 1/12 octave tones ranging from 200 Hz on down to as low as you want and use SPL meter with correction values here on page 4. Use low volume settings.
    May need to get BFD (recommended) or other parametric eq to eq out any greater than 3dB peakiness after placing sub and seats in best possible locales for smoothing out room modes. Then re-match your sub levels and phase.

    Hope this helps ya,

    Also – cabinets are usually not the best place for a sub. Most subs get the best output when placed in a corner.
