I have an Onkyo TX-SR707 AVR with MultiEQ and Dynamic EQ. I use and enjoy the Audyssey features during 7.1 movie viewing. I have Magnepan 1.6QR front speakers which can provide bass down to about 45hz as well as dual HSU subwoofers.
My issue is that I prefer to listen to 2 channel music in the Onkyo "Pure Audio" mode which turns off all processing including bass management. In that case I loose my subs and the below 40hz sound.
If I move my subs to be driven off of the onkyo front main speaker preouts and set the fronts to LARGE to optimize 2 channel listening....How will the impact the performance of Audyssey when listening to 7.1 movies? I can adjust the LPF, phase, crossover frequency of the subs using the sub amps controls instead of the AVR.
1. Pre out vs LFE MultiEQ: Does MultiEQ work on the lower frequencies with higher resolution if the lower frequencies are output from the main preouts instead of LFE?
2. Preout vs LFE Dynamic EQ: Does Dyn EQ work on the lower frequencies if those frequencies are output from the main speakers instead of the subwoofer LFE?
3. I have 2 HSU subwoofers. What happens if I attach one subwoofer from the main pre outs and the second from the LFE output. How will this effect Audyssey processing?
