The digital display is only on the Plus and Ultra models. It has to be noted that the "volume" setting is in fact only an attenuation of the line-level input. The recommended setting is max (0 dB) unless (like many) your AVR is not able to reduce the signal enough to get the appropriate level for this sub. If you use the sub in a small room, in all likelihood you'll have to set the volume lower.

On the 1000- and 2000- series sub, the volume knob is the amp's gain. If you set it to the max, you may experience too much noise. Somewhere between 10 and 2 o'clock is the recommended starting position.

It's also to be noted that the volume (on any model) setting has no bearing on the max output that you'll be able to reach with the sub.

i do like the black oak finish a lot better then this plastic look gloss stuff. it makes the sub look more natural and i just like wood and natural things more then plastic and unnatural stuff.

ah that explains a lot, thanx. the -6dB setting on my sub is allready too much bass for me . my room is 6x6.5 meters, not that small i guess . for amp gain it is best to have the volumeknob at half power, so it won't distort and least amount of noise indeed.

If it is above zero, turn the gain up on the sub some more and re-run YPAO. The goal is to set the gain on the sub in such a way that YPAO will set the subwoofer trim around -8 or -9. Auto calibration almost always sets the subwoofer quieter than most people prefer, so this gives you room to turn the sub up 6 dB or so, to -2 or -3. Of course, this should be done AFTER you have performed the subwoofer crawl, to ensure the sub is in an optimal location for good bass at your main listening position. If you cannot get YPAO to set the sub down to -6 to -9 even with the gain maxed out, then a Y splitter might help, or there might be an issue with the sub or the AVR. Good luck!

Also, if you are able to get the sub setup properly this way, play some bass heavy music nice and loud. Not super low deep bass, but some nice punchy bass. Reverse the phase on the sub. If the bass weakens, the phase was correct, switch it back. If the bass noticeably improves, it was out of phase and is now correct.
agree. with a sub with gain adjust as the one he has it better to decide whether he want to turn it up 3/6/9 dB and then run the ypao on volume setting that end up with -3/-6/-9 dB then after this he can set it to his liking and have the end result be that the trim is at 0dB so that the gainknob on the sub is at the lowest possible setting and has least amount of noise and distortion.

I also have the black oak finish with my Ultra and it matches very well with my Klipsch 7's and 64.

Dajojo have you tested your Ultra out on any bass heavy movies yet?
