Hi, I’m using new Triton Two Plus speakers. Should I run Audyssey first and then manual speaker configuration (using option 2 in the speakers’ manual- Front Large, SW On, LFE only) or do First, manual speakers configuration and then. Audyssey? Thanks

You might try it both ways to see which sounds better to you. Not trying to offer a cop-out, but at least you'll know which one works best for your room and preferences.

Here is what I did to make Audessey usable for me:

1) Run Audessey. Make sure you've purchased the iPhone app for additional audessey control. Limit the correction range to 500hz and lower.

2) Go into the results and adjust the distances to ensure they're correct. Audessey did weird things to my subwoofer distances.

3) Using the iPhone app, tweak the results as you desire. I raised the bass levels to match the original GE speaker curves. I also made copies of the full range results and then limited those to 500hz and lower.

4) Upload your results to the receiver/processor and enjoy. With the app it's easy to tweak files and upload them. The reciever/processor only holds one Audessey file. So you just keep overwriting them.

So this is what I hade done with my 2+. Works beautifully now. Below it states I set all the channels to 80DB. I did this with an spl meter app on my phone.

Well....I finally figured out where the issue lied. All AUDYSSEYs fault. I hope this info will help everyone that has feared there was something with these incredible towers. There is two parts to the correction. #1 turn off the dynamic eq, something with this over accentuates the lows and masks all the detail as a result. The second part which is something I decided to do on a whim is change all the dB level settings. I found that Audyssey significantly dropped all the levels so playing at normal volume everything sounded lifeless. I set my SR6011 to 0db and went into speaker levels in the settings. I know this is all subjective but I went ahead and adjusted all the channels to 80db. I also found that because the dynamic eq was off I could adjust the LFE up to the 75db area, again in the speaker level settings. My tower lfe level is at 1 o’clock as I found this the best for me with music. That’s it.
I popped in Avengers Endgame and I could not have been more impressed with what I was hearing. Crisp clean detail, impressive lows without sounding like a bloated mess. I really hope that whoever stumbles across this is also able to reap the benefit of many weeks of experimenting and the wife always telling me it sounds fine lol. Thanks to everyone who’s post I have read. Tons of great info out there just takes forever to get through it all. Enjoy!
