I am finally going to try and calibrate my speakers. I picked up an analog spl meter. My JVC receiver (which I will be replacing soon) only allows me to adjust the speaker levels for the center and surround left and right. Will this be a problem? I assume I will have to set the level for the center and surround speakers to match the fronts. I also want to calibrate my sub JVC 10’ 110w (which I will also be replacing soon). I have a volume control on the sub and I can adjust the sub level on the receiver from -10db to +10db. Do I set the volume level on the sub to the normal listening level and then use the receiver to have it match the speaker. Is this correct? I don’t have Avia or any other setup cd so I will have to use the test tones from the receiver. I have Star Wars DVD which has test tones on the DVD. Which would be better to use? Any other info you can give me to help would be greatly appreciated. I have no clue what I am doing? Thank you and thank God for this forum
I forgot to mention that my receiver does not send a test tone to the Sub. If I remember correctly the one on the Star Wars DVD does but I don't think it sends a pink noise. Is there anything I can do? I plan on getting the Avia DVD in the future which I am sure will help but i would like to make do with what i have for now. Is there something I can download and burn to cd to calibrate the sub? Thank you for your help i really appreciate it.
