As many of you know, I got my new SVS PB12-NSD on Friday. I just hooked it up and was re-going through the Audyssey set-up calibration.
As a reminder:
Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR805
Front L/R: Polk Audio RTi8
Center: Polk Audio CSi5
Surround R/L: Polk Audio Monitor 40
Surround Back R/L: Polk Audio FXiA6 Bipole/Dipole
Subwoofer: Moving from Polk Audio PSW505 to SVS PB12-NSD
I have initial set-up the sub as SVS has recommended in the packaging:
Gain to 12 o clock
Phase control to 0
Low Pass set to Disable
Auto/On switch set to Auto
Here is what I am experiencing.
When going through the Audyssey MultEQ Set-up the PSW505 originally the subwoofer was very boomy and bassy when it came to listening to the subwoofer channel. When I am running this with the SVS PB12-NSD it sounds very dull and dim when it's in the listening mode for the Sub. Here is a picture of my front set-up.
While, I havent watched a BluRay yet, I have watched HDTV in Dolby Digital and the sub sounds very weak. I have it connected to my Onkyo 805 using an LFE cable to the LFE in on the subwoofer.
I was expecting a lot more bigger bass impact from this sub from the recommendations I received on here, but I am having difficulty getting it.
Is there possibly something wrong with the sub?
