One of these, if you have a BluRay player that decodes DTS and Dolby to 7.1 LPCM (not all of them do, and some that do, downmix to 2Ch):

 

http://www.minidsp.c...ries/nanoavr-hd  

 

It is what I put up .xml files for.  Simply connect via USB, load the .xml file into one of the 4 available slots on the nanoAVR, and watch the film.

 

It does all of its processing in the digital realm, no D-A or A-D conversions, and it has HDMI in/out.

 

Otherwise, HTPC software like JRMC prior to AVR, or another DSP solution.

If you already have the 2x4 you can already try the setting maxmercy posted.

 

Assuming the dsp is on the subwoofer system, apply all the filters listed for the lfe channel.

This will leave out some of the gain for the rerouted bass from l/r channels (because the filter required for those are different from the lfe), but should still give you an idea of what kind of improvement this is.

 

But be carfeful, those are very high gains in the ulf frequency range, make sure you don't accidentally play something like WOTW or Kon-Tiki, and try it out at a lower mater volume level first.

I know.  I was hoping to get room-shaking effects when the stone giants fight, but it is as if a brickwall was used in sound design for those....too bad.

Scott Pilgrim BEQ is shockingly good.  Those guys know how to mix a film and leave very little on the table, besides extension...which the BEQ fixes handily.

Will the nanoavr be able to put PEQ's on the sub channel like the minidsp 2x4?

Also does the output of this effect audussey calibration? Do you have to recalibrate each time you re-eq the bass?

Maybe I'll sell my 2x4 and get one if these

Bass EQ works independent of any room-correction like Audyssey.

Ok. I guess I'm trying to wrap my head around it. Goes from br player to miniavr to avr to speakers and sub?
Meow do u make sure the avr isn't touching the signal other than channel levels

Yes, the receiver is in bypass mode pretty much and I would turn down all the levels as low as possible and control it through the nano and amps. Of course this is for high sensitive speakers.

Yup.  BluRay -> nanoAVR -> Receiver.  Let the receiver and Audyssey/YPAO/MCCAC/whatever do its thing.

 

You need a BluRay player that converts Dolby TrueHD and DTSHD to 7.1 LPCM.  Many players convert one or the other, but they downmix the other format to 2ch.  I hava a Panasonic BDT460, it converts both to 7.1 LPCM.  Many older BDPs with 7.1 RCA outs also convert both.  LOTS of newer players only convert Dolby or DTS to 7.1, and downmix the other to 2Ch.  Make sure and read the specs.

 

When you playback the movie after loading the proper config into the nanoAVR, turn up the film by the initial negative gain in the correction (usually 7dB).  This will make the listening levels for dialogue equal between normal and BassEQ versions.

 

More BassEQ films will be posted as time goes on.  Not all films can be fixed with BassEQ, but there are some that are significantly better with it.  I will not post a correction unless I feel it is a significant improvement over the original.

I updated the first post with the films to be BassEQ'ed.  I'll try to post up one every week.  Has anyone tried to do this with the nanoAVR, or am I wasting my time posting this stuff up?

I think it is worthwhile though i haven't tried it yet, i intend to when I get my new sub in a few weeks. I will do it via jriver BTW not a nanoavr.
