About the Auto Setup
The Audyssey MultEQ auto setup function detects the presence of
each speaker and automatically calculates the speaker size, channel
level, distance, and optimal crossover frequency setting. Audyssey
MultEQ corrects acoustical distortions within the listening area.
Before starting, connect and position all of your speakers.
Once started, MultEQ will play a series of test tones through each
If an error message appears during the measurements, check “Error
Messages”, take the advised action, then start the measurements

• Loud test sounds may be played during Audyssey MultEQ automatic
speaker setup. This is part of normal operation. If there is background
noise in room, these test signals will increase in volume.
• Do not stand between the speakers and setup microphone or allow
obstacles in the path while the measurements are being made. This
will cause inaccurate readings.
• Make the room as quiet as possible. Background noise can disrupt
the room measurements. Close windows, silence cell phones,
televisions, radios, air conditioners, ﬂuorescent lights, home
appliances, light dimmers, or other devices as measurements may
be affected by these sounds.
Cell phones should be placed away from all audio electronics during
the measurement process as Radio Frequency Interference (RFI)
may cause measurement disruptions (even if the cell phone is not in

The speaker connection and polarity are detected at the ﬁrst
measurement position (main listening position). The following
attributes are also determined at this time: “Speaker Size”, “Speaker
Distance”, “Channel Level”, “Crossover Frequency”.

• To cancel the measurements, press o.
• If the result differs from the actual connection status or an error
message appears, use i to on-screen display “Retry

press o to repeat the measurement.
• If the result still differs from the actual connection status after re-
measurement or the error message still appears, it is possible that
the speakers are not connected properly. Turn the AVR-2309CI
off, check the speaker connections and repeat the measurement
process from the beginning.
