    RSX1055 Set Up

    Hi All,

    I know I have seen how to do this, but can't seem to find it.

    Can anybody tell me the best way to do this with a SPL Meter.

    The best way is to use a calibration DVD like Avia or video essentials. If avia's to costly there's a cheaper version that sound and vision made that's basically a watered down copy of Avia (though still very good) that you should be able to find at best buy etc. Use that along with an SPL meter to ballence out each of the channels as well as calibrate your TV and you'll be good to go.

      Like Andrew suggested, get a professional home theater setup DVD (I use the Sound & Vision Home Theater DVD). The DVD is pretty much dummy proof so it should explain everything to you. To cut to the chase, you will want to place your SPL meter in your primary listening location (preferrably with a tri-pod, however not required). Set all your speaker adjustments to 0 dB. Begin the 5.1 or 6.1 test tones for each individiual speaker from the HTS DVD. Chose a speaker that will be your reference channel (some folks use the center channel for reference, others the front left channel). Cycle the HTS DVD till you get to your reference speaker and adjust the volume on your receiver till the SPL meter reads 75 dB (some set theirs to 85 dB). DO NOT touch the volume once you have reached this set point. Continue cycling through all the speakers on the HTS DVD adjusting each speaker level through the receiver's OSD so that they all read 75 or 85 dB on the SPL meter. Once this is done, then use the Sub Level calibration to set the sub ref level. The process should be similar, however, if you are going to use a Radio Shack SPL meter, it generally reads the sub level a bit low on the dB scale so you may want to calibrate your sub 3-5 dB higher than the reference tone. Hope this helps.

      Tony

        Just one more thing to add, if you have a 6.1 or 7.1 setup, you'll need to use the receiver's internal test tones for calibrating the surrounds, because RS processing is always active and can interfere with the discrete test tones that Avia or VE provide for the left/right surrounds.
