AccuEQ Advance conducts two measurements- one to set the level, the other to set the distance and crossover for ALL speakers, including the subwoofer. In the second round of measurements, your room’s sonic characteristics are evaluated. Using this information, AccuEQ is able to prevent standing waves from forming by adjusting frequency response. The technology also detects and compensates for background noise, such as the hum from an HVAC, to ensure accurate equalization.
Choose to include or bypass EQ measurement for front left and right speakers, and choose to automatically or manually set the EQ. Further, you can save your own manual EQ settings into three available presets.
AccuReflex technology aligns the phase of upfiring “height” speakers with the sound coming directly from your
other speakers. Any delay is resolved so that everything arrives at your ears at the same time. The result is cohesive
reproduction of object-based soundtracks.
