Please help! Calibrating wired subwoofer to a soundbar
Hi, everyone. I'm pretty much a newbie at the subwoofer game. I have an SVS SB12-Plus subwoofer, and I decided to get the Vizio S5430 soundbar, which is 3.0 with a subwoofer output. The manual for the sub has instructions for calibrating with an AV receiver and speakers, and these don't seem to apply to calibrating the sub to a soundbar. Is the best method going to be to listen and toy with the sub's gain (I have the crossover disabled) until it sounds right? Or is there a more-efficient method that will yield better results? I do have an SLP meter, but again, I'm not sure I can use it for this.
FYI, the soundbar allows me to set bass levels as well as the subwoofer level, surround level and also DTS TruSurround On/Off and DTS TruVolume On/Off. However, these are not numbered settings; just LED indicators that go up and down. It does not, as far as I can tell, send test tones.
Thank you for your help,
