I am experiencing several problems, using XT32 in my Onkyo PR-SC5509, compared to my previous Onkyo PR-SC5507.
I am using a 9.2 THX Ultra2 setup from 'Teufel', deploying height speakers and two 750/1200 Watts dual 12 inch subwoofers.
The sound with XT was OK, but there were problems in the high sounds - comb filter, I don't know. However, my subwoofers had their volume level around 1 o'clock and there was always enough 'punch' to let me sometimes frop my jaw - Terminator salvation, the beginning was such thing.
First of all, the 75 dB level measurement. This is sending my subwoofers from 1 o'clock to 8 o'clock on the volume dial. I am asking myself, why? XT found this setting correct and me too.
After the full measurement, all speakers are set in the minus dB area. Shouldn’t it be around 0 dB? The resulting sound lacks a lot of 'punch' - 200 to 300 Hz - in my understanding. The mids and heights are much better than with XT but there is a lack of bass. Also, I found it necessary to activate DynamicEQ to get at least some bass. All in all XT was livelier even it had its problems.
My questions now are should it be like this, are the differences to XT normal, is this may be a problem of the Onkyo implementation?
I would like to have my subwoofers back to 1 o'clock volume levels to have more dynamic range. Also, it should be possible to disable the ReEQ permanently in Onkyo AVRs as stated here in another post, that this should be the case, because Audyssey is already doing the high frequency roll-off.
Thank you in advance
