Well I popped in Master and Commander after setting up my EX last night.
Went through the auto setp with my Pioneer 92 Elite. It had me set the woofer on 2.5 for volume. I thought, "Man this is going way low."
Ummm... all I can say is holy crap!
I have it set on "Max Output" as I kind of wanted to have that mid-bass jolt as well. And boy does it jolt!
My wife says, "It isn't going to shake the house apart is it?"
I said no, but in retrospect... I don't know. Could it damage the house?
I'm guessing no since it's in a 19' x 15' room. But the floor and my chest sure were rumbling hehe.
I do have a question though. I didn't notice the "sound" of the subwoofer as much as I felt it. Is this the way it should be? Almost like my mains and my other speakers were taking care of much of the bass. Although maybe it's just because it's integrated well and I don't notice it above all the other speakers... don't know.
I'm running Aperion Intimus 6T towers for my mains and Aperion all the way around for the two surrounds and the center channel.
