• Audyssey MultEQ® automatically measures the acoustical problems
in the listening environment to create the best audio experience for
your home theater.
• Audyssey MultEQ optimizes a large listening area where one or
more listeners are seated.
Measurements are performed by placing the calibrated microphone
(DM-A409) successively at multiple positions throughout the
listening area as shown in Example q. For best results, it is strongly
recommended to measure 6 positions so that the measurements
have the proper spatial weighting.
Even if the listening environment is small as shown in Example w,
measuring at multiple points throughout the listening environment
results in more effective correction.
To make manual adjustments to the settings, see pages 29 ~ 31.
About the main listening position (*M)
The main listening position refers to the most central position where
one would normally sit within the listening environment.
MultEQ uses the measurements from this position to calculate
speaker distance, level, polarity, and the optimum crossover value
for the subwoofer.
Example qExample w
1Connect the included calibrated setup microphone to
the SETUP MIC jack on the main unit.
The auto setup screen appears automatically.
2Place the microphone at ear height on a tripod or stand
with the microphone pointing directly up towards the
b Do not hold the microphone in your hand during measurements.
Be sure that the path from microphone to the speakers is not
blocked by objects. Avoid placing the microphone close to a seat
back or wall as sound reﬂections may give inaccurate results.
When using a subwoofer, make the following settings before starting
the auto setup procedure:
• Defeat the volume and crossover controls if possible
• If this is not possible then set
• Volume: “12 o’clock” position
• Crossover frequency: “Maximum/Highest Frequency”
• Low pass ﬁlter: “Off”
• Standby mode: “Off”
