I got the Dayton SUB-120 about two weeks ago to complete a mild upgrade of my current home theater system. I hooked it up and set the frequency to 80Hz and the gain a little less than half way. On my receiver a subwoofer is selected, the LFE crossover is set at 100Hz and my speakers are set at Full Band (Either Full band or a Hz selection is necessary, no small or large). The problem is, no matter what source I play from (Xbox 360, PS3, Tivo, CD, DVD, etc. I get almost no bass. It sounds like I get more bass from my tower speakers than my sub. The bass from it is almost completely un-noticeable. I heard a lot of people say this sub is extremely powerful, but I am completely let down by it's performance. I can't seem to find a setting that will make it work right! Can any Onkyo 604 owners provide their sub tips? Can any sub guys give me any hints? I have another 30 days to return the thing to Parts Express for a full refund..I just really don't want to have to deal with paying the return shipping charges. If it does turn out to be the sub, I figure I will go for the BIC H100 which is what I wish I had gone with initially.

Thanks for any help!

"Full Band" means all frequency goes into your speakers instead of some being diverted to the subwoofer. Start by setting crossover frequences to 80 for all channels or run automatic speaker setup.

Also make sure the crossover on the sub is up all the way. This way your receiver is controlling the crossover, not the Dayton.
