There's good nature ribbing and there's intentionally malicious needling and there's no doubt the intent of either.

The difference, if it's good natured and the intent is obviously misunderstood, the author will quickly follow up with a sincere, unsolicited apology and if intentionally malicious, there will only be the sound of crickets.

Go back and read my first comment that was followed by a wink and a smile, which was in response to your comment that had a stick out tongue at the end, which I took to be the friendly stick out tongue, not the rude usage.

So if your post was meant to be good natured, I don't know how you would interpret mine differently if you are an "old school" Internet forum user. My emoticon usage was much less ambiguous than your stick out the tongue usage. A wink and a smile is DEFINITELY a sign of good natured intentions. I am NOT going to apologize because either (a) you overreacted or (b) you don't understand emoticon usage like an "old school" school Internet user, or for that matter, like most new school Internet forum users.

And if your post I responded to wasn't in the spirit of fun and friendliness, well, sorry for attributing you with good intentions rolleyes.gif

On a lighter note, I ordered one yesterday and I'm gonna read the owners manual first thing. Wait, no I'm not...I'm just gonna hook it up and enjoy it through the old trial and error til I like it.

It's okay to ask for help some, but no one can tell you everything to make it perfect in your environment. Trial and error goes a long way and also facilitates learning as a bonus.

It's much smaller in person as you're dealing with a shipping box and inside the shipping box is padding and the product box, which also has protective padding inside and by the time you've dug through all the packing, you come across a very nice sized subwoofer.

A suggestion, if you haven't already, when the product box is opened, to protect the front plastic grill from lifting stress, turn the open box over and lift the box off the subwoofer as opposed to lifting the subwoofer out of the box.

Does being old school involve memory loss? wink.gif Early web-based forums that are the ancestors of this forum didn't begin until the mid to late 1990s. USENET existed before that, but it was hardly "the norm" except for maybe techno geeks. Of course if that's what you are referring to, you can still go back to USENET if you are truly being "old school" wink.gif

Or fidonet. I used to route netmail and echomail.

Don't forget the port is downward-firing, so they would need to be upside-down.

Good thing he can use the Harmony remote to turn them on and off.

Perhaps in the future you could also attribute good intentions to others in their posts, instead of overreacting and piloting the thread into a tail spin. cool.gif

I have to ask. Why were you wondering what button to turn off in the back before you run Audyssey if you havent even opened the box yet?

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

LOL

I will think the best of others.

I'm sorry I over reacted.

You didn't do anything wrong.

I was a bad person.

I was wrong.

I will pull back on the stick.

I am sorry for my transgressions.

Back to Klipsch, RW-12d.

Yes. It's a whole lot easier on the back when rolling the box over in this fashion.

You've got to see when a really large sub arrives! When my Empire came, it was strapped to it's own pallet and the outer box was pretty dang big, too. At least with the Klipsch you can pick it up and move it around easily enough, even carry it downstairs. The Empire weighs more about 120 lbs unpacked so that's not much of an option...it goes where you can slide it unless you have some willing labor wink.gif The unpacking final step by lifting the box off is indeed the way to go....

The Volume display appears to run from no bars to a full line of bars. I'd start with the Volume set to half a line (50%) of bars.

Dunno. If your sub had a volume knob that went from 7 o'clock to 5 o'clock, I tell you to set the knob to "noon". Since your sub has a line of bars, start with half a line of bars.


(Edited pic from the owner's manual.)

Then:
1. Run one cycle (all speakers + sub at the first position) of Audyssey.
2. Run "Calculate" and check the results.
3. If the sub level in the AVR's speaker set-up menu is too low, lower the Volume on the sub; if it's too high, raise the Volume on the sub.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 as required, then run a full set of cycles (all speakers + sub at all positions) of Audyssey.
5. Set all speakers to "small", adjust the crossover if/as required, and tweak if/as desired.

3. If the sub level in the AVR's speaker set-up menu is too low, lower the Volume on the sub; if it's too high, raise the Volume on the sub.
I thought I would add to this on the Denon AVR's after calculation the too low would be anything close to -12 the too high would be +12 (the max avr adjuments) I tried to get mine within +/- 3 that prob doesn't matter as long as you are not hitting the max adjustment or too close to play with that gain some. I also went up on the Aud setting by +3 since I Like It Hot and old school cool.gif

4. Repeat steps 1-3 as required, then run a full set of cycles (all speakers + sub at all positions) of Audyssey.

Thank you so much! I already run my aud. And here is my set up i hope those 2 subs location is ok. No other place than that. Dayton on the left and rw 12d on the right.
