I set all front speakers and center to small and then put the sub cross at 80hz. Even though my front speakers play down to 30hz.
After a bit of tweaking I had to bust out my favorite bass tracks in CD form and loaded them into the Cambridge CD player. Within 30 minutes of me unboxing it I had a realization. I have just entered a new phase in my audio journey. It started when I was in the 8th grade and my dad got me a fisher receiver and speakers and a turntable. I think it was 1976. But here I am at 50 in 2014 and just jumped into phase two which is the Rythmik Audio Subwoofer phase. I have NEVER felt anything like this in my life. Its not that it was loud of over bearing, but it is so deep and solid. I could literally here the framing and sheetrock flex in my room on low hits. The sub delivers it all without even trying. Just rock solid, deep, and in control while in 2.1 channel mode which I assume is more critical than 5.1. I could never locate the sub even when I tried changing the crossover from 40-60-80hz even 100hz.
I know I am far from optimized and after a quick subwoofer crawl I also realize that it needs to move about 4-5 feet from the current location to the corner close by. If this gets any better I don't know what I will do.
for any of you that have ridden motorcycles it is like life before the Hayabusa and then getting a Hayabusa.
I am gonna read more on the setups and find some blue ray dvd source to listen to over the weekend Its supposed to rain. I can't wait.
Glad your enjoying your Hayabusa I mean your Rythmik FV15HP.
