    Duo XD is definitely the way to go. Trio’s can be better, but tricky to get the bass/horn time alignment right. My client in DC has them dialed in beautifully.

    Re: Avantgarde Uno Fino XD

    A quick video above. We are only a few days into break in. I spent hours dialing in the EQ this morning. I’m sorry to say, but many dealers haven’t a clue how to get the EQ just right. Kouppis - I would be curious to see your dealers EQ curve on these. Most dealers leave it flat (no, no, no!).

    Mike, unfortunately the EQ settings the dealer was using are not known to me. How do you set it?

    Thanks for sharing the video, definitely sounds good via the iPad.

    You set it using microphone, spectrum analyzer and the Avantgarde software (which you connect to the back of the speaker using Ethernet or USB).

    Yes. On the little Uno FINO’s, the woofers crossover at 290hz (150hz on DUO and 100hz on Trio). I have adjusted the crossover to 320hz, along with 12 different settings across the spectrum from 20hz to 320hz.

    i can’t wait to hear them again now that they are dialed in Mike. Did the speaker positions move back to the original?
