I decided to redo my Audyssey the other night. Why? I guess I'm a glutton for punishment. It's never the same, no matter how many times I run it.
Two things that are sticking in my craw. This time Audyssey set my center channel at +0.5db down from it's previous setting of +4.0db. Also, both my subs were lowered from Audysseys' previous setting to -11.0db and -10.5db. Down from -10.5db and -9.0 respectively. What's bizarre is, I seem to be getting more LFE now. Almost too much (if there's such a thing). I busted out my trusty SPL meter and with the exception of one channel every other channel is below 75db. Not a big deal, as I'm sure room refections were a big reason why. However, I did bump my center back to +4.0db.
Why the big increase in LFE at lower settings? And why such a drastic decrease at my center channel?
