First of all i am new to this forum so ill introduce myself, im kalekip21 from the netherlands ^^
I recently bought a jamo sub660. i got a feeling this sub can do more then what it is showing me right now.
My amp is a Sony STR-DH520 and i feel im not getting everything.
Any tips on how to configure it or advice?
Set your speakers to small with 100Hz crossover frequency in the AVR. Bypass LPF on the sub by dialling it to its max position (200Hz). Use input marked Left/LFE on the sub.
For a start just put that sub in any of the front wall corners, keep the gain knob in mid position on the sub, and run the auto set up routine on your AVR.
Once that is done and you get the proper distances for all your speakers and sub and they are level matched then set your speakers to small, crossover frequency at 100Hz in avr. Make sure you bypass LPF on the sub by dialling it to its max position (200Hz). Use input marked Left/LFE on the sub.
If bass is less; feel free to bump up the sub trim level in AVR. If still you feel less bass; raise the crossover for all the speakers in the AVR to 120Hz. Try and check how it sounds to you.
Sorry but i am from the netherlands so my english aint perfect hehe..
Could you explain this a bit more? "For a start just put that sub in any of the front wall corner, keep the gain knob in mid position on the sub, and run the auto set up routine on your AVR."
What do you mean by sub being really loud when you when you turn on and then it gets soft?
You don't need to change your receiver. Nothing wrong with the sub either. It's your room and how your system is set up. The only things, for now, that require changing are the room and positioning of the sub/speakers.
Just play any bass heavy song and stand next to the sub where the closet/drawer is. You should hear strong bass in that region. Also, your room is cluttered with closets/drawers. All these objects mess up with subwoofer response in the upper midbass.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with how your sub is hooked up right now. It's only the placement issue of listening position and sub. You are almost in the middle of room both width and length wise. Move you LP further back i.e. close to rear wall and push your sub into left or right corner then rerun auto calibration.
You can add a $10K sub in the mix; you would have the same result if you don't set up your system properly. Placement is the foremost step when it comes to subs.
