I have spent days calibrating it. With the living room door closed I have made sure when you get to the front door you can't hear it. The flat is sound proofed too, so I have not had to faff around with that stuff you stick to the walls. I guess they realised that autistic people, especially when angry and or melting down, can be very noisy so they sound proofed the shiznit out of the place. I have never even so much as heard a mouse fart in there tbh. It's also funny how with the windows open I need another 3db on the amp to achieve the same volume, yet with them closed it's too loud. I also had to spend hours calibrating the sub, as the room is shaped like a horn what with one end being angled. You get to the kitchen and the bass is super heavy, as it's being fired that way. Again, all tuned out. It was the bass that I had the hardest job with. Needing to be courteous and not wanting my flat sounding like a house party was the priority. Thankfully the AV32 has it all. And I mean all. I am still learning how it works after using it for almost a year. It's an incredible piece of equipment tbh.
