to be giving all that's there in movies with sub 20hz bass. Sometimes I think it could be Audyssey and the way it blends a sub in and that maybe I should just run the subs a little hotter even tbough there seems to be a little more "chestiness" to voices than what I'm accustomed to.
The DD-15s have no problem digging down below 20Hz. I have heard, numerous times, that using Audyssey has caused the bass to be lacking. I really don't know if that's true because I don't use Audyssey. Anyway, you can try several things:
1) Turn the volume up on your sub. This may throw off your calibration.
2) Turn off Audyssey and listen for a while to determine if the bass is better.
3) Determine if you are sitting in a null spot. If this is the problem, you will need to relocate your listening position. This could mean only moving a few inches to the left, right, front, or back.
4) Determine if your subs are located in the best positions and are not canceling each other out. If this is the problem, then you will always have this problem regardless of what subs you own.
5) Check your sub's EQ. If the subs are properly EQed, then Audyssey really shouldn't be doing anything to the bass.
6) Look into getting some Room Treatments for your room if that's possible. This will help with nulls and peaks to a certain point like maybe down to 60Hz. After that you have to look into really thick Room Treatments to deal with the lower frequencies; but, that's where the EQ kicks in.
I hope this was helpful.
