Calibration begins from the Front Left, and it will go through all your speakers. Ideally make sure you have removed all ambient noises as much as you can when performing this calibration.
At the end of each measurement cycle, the MultEQ app will transfer the measured data from the Av8805 to your android device. This can take a while (see arrow). The status will be changed to ‘Next’ once transfer is complete. Tap ‘Next’ to measure the next position.
You can also tap on ‘Repeat last’ to re-measure the current listening position (do this if there are sudden loud noises in the room that you know will skew the results).
Repeat the measurement up to 8 times. You do not have to do all 8 positions, 3 is usually sufficient but your mileage will vary.
Funnily enough the box has the MultEQ XT32 logo on it. Does this mean one can use the pro kit with this? I do not know. If 8 measurements is already too tedious for me, I cannot see myself doing 32 measurements. This process sounds like averaging to me and it’s not something I want to do anyway.

The hints how to copy and rename curves helped me a lot. Unfortunately the app is often not self-explanatory. Many thanks for your work.

A big THANK YOU for your article! This is what the user manual should have been! I followed it all the way through and successfully made the measurements, edit the curves, and uploaded to the receiver (Marantz AVR7012) , all in the First Try! However, the second try did not go so well. The app kept losing the receiver and I had to start over several times…… That’s probably is one of the reasons for low ratings. I finally noted your suggestion and use the IP address to "help" the app find the receiver. All my equipments are on a wired network, and the tablet was less than 5 feet away from the router. Never had any connection problem on wi-fi .
Yes, the app is great , if it’s consistent. My cons are:
- Occasional loss of contact with receiver… "may" be handled by giving it the IP address to search on retry.
- Slow. It took me about an hour to upload the data to the receiver (AVR 7013 and Galaxy TAB-A). Many times I thought it was hung, but just waited it out.
Many thanks again for a very helpful article.
