Hi, i recently bought a secondhand B&W ASW650. but i cant get the sub finetuned the way i like it. i only can get the sub to not sound at all, or sound too boomy.
if i use music to set it up, i can get it to work with some songs, when i change to another song, it sounds like crap. (worse than without the sub)
i did not buy the sub, for it to sound worse
Onkyo TX SR313
(i know, its not a good Receiver)
2x Philips FB840
Connected via LFE
CrossoverFreq: 50-70 Hz, some songs 50Hz is best, some songs its more to 70Hz.
Crossover on Subwoofer: OFF
EQ: A (B sounded a bit worse imho)
fase: tried 0 and 180, is a bit difference, but does not solve my problem.
then i tried an frequency generator
(via a chromecast)
and i noticed frecuencies from 60 to 90 are played on both my subwoofer, aswell as my fronts.
wich is confusing to me, as i thought the receiver should send everything above the setting to the fronts, and everything below to the sub, (maybe with a overlap of a few Hz)
as i spent over 4 hours already on it, i decided to get help here. ill try placement today, but i dont have much room to place it, and my roommates wont like to have subwoofer in the way.
- Sub placement
- using speakercables to connect sub to receiver, and fronts to the sub ( will this help? )
- audio modes on receiver, currently im using Neo6: Music.
- try another Frequency generator (CD, notebook, ..)
pls help me.
