I recently purchased a Pioneer HTP-071 High Power 5.1 AV Receiver with 5.1 Speaker Package. I set it up exactly as the instructions explained. When I power it on I get sound from the front left, front right, as well as the surround L, and surround R. The subwoofer is working but at a very low level. I went through the settings and adjusted each speaker individually and when I do that the speakers are very loud. I have the sub set all the way up and still it is a not very loud. Also I have to have the volume up to around 25-30 to get a decent level. Otherwise all speakers are low. But the sub is always low.
Currently I am getting sounds all around, but I don’t think its using true 5-1 surround sound. I have the setting on Extended stereo. I have spent hours trying to figure this out, everything is plugged in correctly, but this system still seems to be way underperforming. I have also verified that speakers are set to small. I understand that setting them to Large can effect the Sub.
Please offer any advice you may have.
