^^ How do I know how loud exactly 78db is on my sub??
I also tried an Atlantic Technology 422SB, and I set the gain on "preset"(I'm assuming that's default), and the bass was so low, again, felt like it lacked any oomph. Audyssey had lowered it to -9db on my Marantz, and I moved it up even just to -3db, and still bottoming out, and a terrible mid bass distortion.
I've run Audyssey 5 times today.. 3 times with the BIC PL-200, and 2 times with the Atlantic Technology sub.
Again, with it off I have WAY more headroom, and the lower frequencies are INTENSE, clean, and warm welcomed!
Anyway, the net net is, when Audyssey is on without adjusting the bass, it's extremely weak, and when I increase it ever the slightest, it sounds rough. 'Course maybe it sounds bad all along and that I just can't hear it when it's so low. And then without Audyssey, it's like my sub turns into the incredible hulk(relatively speaking), and flat out commands and can actually over power my little room.
Is there any chance my mic or Marantz is defective? Or does Audyssey always set bass extremely low? (Not to mention distort when you raise it?)
