Hey all - Well I bit and went out and got a new SVS PB1000 to replace my low powered klipsch. It just came today and absolutely dwarfs it in size.... however to my surprise when I unhooked the small klip and plugged this in, I got what seemed like less bass then the other one ( 55 rms vs 300 ) .. I thought maybe it was audyssey, so I ran that with the new sub incorporated, and seemed to get only a little more bass out of the SVS ... I turned it up to 12 o'clock ( to be within +/- 3db in Audyssey, which is strange in a sub this size as is ), got within 1.5 on my Denon, but the bass still sounds muted. Granted if I turn it up a little more I can feel it, but it sounds really bad. There's no tone to the bass - just basically one note " Mud " ... This surely can't be the norm, as this is a much recommended sub here on AVS. I've 1. switched sub cables to see if it made a diff, nope, 2. Made sure I've got it plugged into LFE ( obviously ) - 3. All my speakers are set to small and set to cross at 80 as per usual 4. Double checked phase and that the crossover on the sub is off ( or set to lfe all the way to the right in this case ... I dunno, Any idea?
Again If I turn the thing 3/4 full ( after audyssey ) I can definitely hear the one note pounding away, but again it's just one note, doesn't even sound like music .. just a one note rumble that actually makes music sound terrible. I tried with a couple movies I've got ( where I know there should be some major bass ) and it doesn't sound any louder or deeper then the 55rms Klipsch. Lemon?
