I have 2 Klipsch RW-12D subwoofers and I wanted to gauge what should be the settings on the onboard AMP for these subs as they should be identical? This is for movie mode. I want to be able to hear good heavy bass but not overpower the rest of the audio from the other speakers.

I know some may suggest to run Audyssey - I'm still waiting for my microphone to come in but any help would be greatly appreciated. This is for more action movies.

Thanks!

Set them to about 2/3's volume which should be about 22 or 24. Set them to movie mode. Then run Audyssey.

That's how I set them up and it worked well.

before running Audyssey set to Flat, Always On, Lowpass OFF LFE Mode, Phase 0, Volume -20.

Run Audyssey once, check SW Level, repeat until you get the level near Zero. + or - 3.0 will be close enough. Adjust volume on Sub until you get near zero. Then run Audyssey in all positions.

Once you're through running Audyssey, you can set Punch, Depth or Flat, On Settings as desired.

I use Depth for movies, Punch for Music, Flat for Night & Auto On. Ymmv.

I'm trying to understand the Audyssey set up. When setting up the sub it tells me to set the volume on the sub to 75db via the mic. So if I have it at -20 it will not be 75db. What am I missing ?
Thanks for any info.

I have the Onkyo-809 A/V receiver that has Audyssey MultEQ XT. I'm not up to par on all of the Audyssey versions etc.
To be honest I have 2 of these RW-12D's and 2 of the HSU subs a VTF-3.3 and a VTF 3.4 all in the same room. I simply do not have anywhere to put the RW-12D's other than my HT room, so I conneted them and put them near field.
It's very difficult to get the RW12D's to blend in with HSU subs with no measuring equipment.
But thanks for posting your info.

Use the gain/volume adjustment on the sub to whatever it takes to get to 75db reading, ignore what it says on the RW12d itself or the avr's master volume control (wasn't sure what you meant by set at -20, sub or avr).

Ray---what did you do with the quotes? Looks strange! ps--never mind seems I started that...sometimes that dual quote feature is nice other times it's a pain....


I run my RW12d at -18-19 mostly fwiw. Audyssey (and your avr, some things like crossover are actually your avr's suggestion rather than Audyssey) will basically use your sub level as set at 75dB and coordinate spl between your speakers and sub (as they have slightly different standard spl numbers); the avr will set trim/level for your sub accordingly and sometimes you might want to tweak things to get a trim/level setting in your avr after running Audyssey of at least 0 or below).
