When I calibrate my system with AVIA and RS Analog meter for subwoofer the meter fluctuates a lot about anywhere for 2 to 10 dbs.
I have Denon 3803 and I set the master volume to 0 db and the meter to 80 db slow (C weighted). When I calibrate the F, R, C, SR, SL the meter needle correctly stabilizes at 85db. But for my sub SVS Pb2+ it fluctuates anywhere from 87db to 97db. Its like for a second it stays at 87 then goes beyond 95db and keep doing back and forth. I have tried adjusting the gain control on the sub but I does not help much. For some channels it fluctuates a few db more than the others.
Is this the problem of room gain?
I live on the first floor in an apartment building and the floor is carpeted. There is nobody living below me.
How do I calibrate my SVS sub correctly?
Thanks in advance for your help.
