i have been searching but didn't find answer so i would like to ask you guys for solution or answers. The other reason is that i am complete newbie to Subs since i didn't have any before. So I eneded up with SVS PB-12NSD, amazing sub btw, but i would like to find best place for it. So i have read about sub crawl and give a try, downloaded recommended song from Audioholics. But what i am not sure is:
- in which mode should i do crawl? In 5.1 or 2.1? I think 2.1 since listenning to song and not watching the movie but i am not sure...
- if for above question answer will be 2.1 then do i have to crawl also in 5.1 mode?
- do i have to disconnect other channels (I have 5.1 actually) so only Sub is connected? Some articles mention to disconnect and some don't mention...
One more question - i have now old Yamaha RX V-359 and there is no autosetup available. Also not possible to set crossover
I plan an upgrade but until then i am not really sure how to setup both sub and Yamaha.
What i did is set:Sub:
gain to 50%, low pass to "disable", phase to zero exactly as user manual says.AVR Yamaha:
I set all speakers to Small ( I have Def tech Pro Monitor 1000 as front, Def tech Pro Monitor 800 as surround and ProCenter 2000.
There is not much more to set, just LFE Volume which i could set between -20dB and 0dB. So i set it to 0dB. Here is an extract from Yamaha's manual describing setup:Bass out 1D BASS
Use this feature to select the speakers that output the LFE(low-frequency effect) and the low-frequency signals.Choices: SWFR (subwoofer), FRNT (front), BOTH• Select "SWFR" if you connected a subwoofer. TheLFE signals as well as the low-frequency signals ofother speakers set to "SML" or to "NON" are directedto the subwoofer.• Select "FRNT" if you did not connect a subwoofer.The LFE signals, the low-frequency signals of the frontleft and right channels, and the low-frequency signalsof other speakers set to "SML" or to "NON" are alldirected to the front left and right speakers regardlessof the "1B FRONT" setting.• Select "BOTH" if you connected a subwoofer.

Nothing more to set, no corssover, etc...
