I've read a lot about this in the avsforums that it is utmost important to calibrate the speaker levels and match it with the subwoofer levels while setting it up.

Why is no audio calibration discs available in India and why nobody is talking about SPL meter for calibration here in this forum.

Is it not that important???

My Gear is,

Onkyo-HTR390 Receiver
Onkyo SKF-4800 Floor Standers
HTIB Onkyo Passive Sub
Oppo BDP-103

I thought of upgrading my sub to Bic Acoustech PL-200 or with any equivalent.

So, before making the subwoofer purchase how should i gauge my speaker's frequency response??

calibration discs not available in india, could be the hifi audio phile janta is less.

and in that too, most may rely on Audyssey etc, in the box solutions.

and there are also free tools, instead of buying these discs, but will require a bit of knowledge and some effort.

i have a radio-shack sound level meter, that i use for calibrating my system.
and a disney WOW disc for visual calibration.
