8351 & 7380A Calibration with Turntables

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 9/4/17 Recent Posts


I recently purchased a pair of 8351's and a 7380 Sub for monitoring for my DJ setup and for the home stereo.

When using the Auto Calibration, I am finding it is leaving a large bass hole in my sound.

I have tried correcting this in the Room Response Controls, but it just seems to keep sounding thin. I have a tight notch at 39.7Hz for a turntable feedback or room node, but I can't seem to get the low end back.

Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with setting this type of monitoring system up with turntables. All feedback appreciated.

the notch you're seeing can't be related to turntable feedback.

Auto calibration happens only inside the speaker system, regardless of source.

You can absolutely disable the room corrections one-by-one or as a whole.

It's not unusual to experience auto calibration as thin or a bit over-optimised in home setups.


And again, the source being turntables doesn't figure into the equation.
Or at least i sincerely hope that you're not playing at volumes where feedback would become a problem ;)
