    1) Connect the speakers and sub to the relevant terminals
    2) Turn the volume right up and start the test tones
    3) Turn on the SPL and switch the response or weighting to "Slow"
    4) Increase or decrease the test tone levels on all 5 (6,7?) speakers until they read "0db" on the SPL (or at least my one anyway).
    5) Set the gain on the sub to the same
    6) Crack open a beer and watch a film.
