    Hello all,

    In the THX Optimode frequency sweep, why do they instruct you to turn the volume down before you run it? Wouldn't you want to test how your speakers perform at reference level? And what do they mean by turning the volume down,

    -10, -20? Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Regards,

    Darren

    That tone is harsh on you and your speakers. Turn it down to a comfy level, not anything specific.
    There are several threads about using Optimode for serious testing/calibration.
    Search it out, if you need more info.
    Good Luck -
