I just got the new amp today and installed it. I put the volume on the new amp to the same lvl I had it last time and its the same lvl my other subwoofer is at. I plugged it in and ran a test tone just to make sure it was function properly and the sub over powered my room. It was extremely loud which surprised me since it was the same setting as last time and as the other subwoofer(also same on the AVR crossover and LVL). I re-ran audyssey from my onkyo 5007 and my other subwoofer is at -3.5 while the one with the new amp is -9.5.
I don't understand why this would be. Both are set up the same, haven't switched places or anything. Previous setups always had this sub at -4 which was only -.5 degrees cooler than the other. Is there a difference in the new amps? Or is this a bad sign about my other subwoofer and its amplifier? I ordered them at the same time.
Sent this to HSU. Maybe they have a way I can test the amp to make sure its receiving and outputting the right amount of power.
