I have seen the panamax md2-rca recommended for subwoofers before. Does anyone know if that would in any way hurt the power consumption or the outlaw's performance?

Thanks!

You will be fine. The outlaw amps won't pull too much current to worry about tripping the surge protector. The surge protector is not a bottleneck in the circuit either.

Guys, I just got a used Outlaw LFM-1 Plus off Craigslist to replace my wimpy Pioneer 8" SW-8 (Andrew Jones) sub. I have no idea how to set-up my LFM-1 Plus properly. Please advise...

I have it near my seating area (sofa). My room is 18ft wide x 28ft long x 8.5ft high. Screen is on the width side. My current 7.1 speaker setup is: Pioneer SP-FS52 towers (fronts), SP-BS22-LR (surrounds) and SW-8 (subwoofer) (now being replaced by LFM-1 Plus).

Should I set all my speakers to small, crossover to 80Hz, then run Audyssey? What about the sub? Set X-Over to 'Active'? I have both ports open and set port to 'Max Output'. Set crossover to 80Hz? Set volume to 5? Finally, set phase to '0'?

Yes, your speakers should all be set to small. The crossover in your AVR is recommended to be set at 80 kHz. This is a THX recommendation, and it really just depends, some on here crossover at 100, but I personally cross mine over at 80. Make sure the X-Over switch on the back of the sub is not set on active since you will be utilizing the crossover in your AVR. Volume (gain) on the back of the sub is another contested topic. I have two Outlaws (a Plus and an EX), and my gain knob is set at about 2 or 2.5 on both. When I first set both of them up, I turned the gain knob to about 6 on both and put on some dubstep. I had pictures fall off of the walls. What I was told when I originally purchased these subs was you wanted to try to get your room correction adjustment on your sub as close to 0.0 as possible. With my gain knobs on 2.5 my room correction (YPAO) reads -1.5.


Hope this helps. I am by no means a professional, so maybe some on here can give you a little more advice. This thread has not seen much action lately though.

Thanks, that's helpful. I'll try Audyssey with gain at 3 as my room is kinda large.

For what it's worth, the room that I originally had the subs in was over 5,000 cubic feet. Yours stands at about 4,300. 3 or 4 on the gain may be what you need, just try and get Audyssey to read it as close to zero as possible.


Side note, you will LOVE that sub. It is unreal the dimension a good sub or subs add to music and movies.


If you haven't seen Skyfall, there is a scene in it that is my favorite to demo bass output. If you have seen it, you know which scene I am talking about


And of course, let me know how it goes, and your general thoughts on the Outlaw.

I have seen 'Skyfall'... you mean the Skyfall ranch house blowing up, subway train crash or another scene?

I noticed that you had also been looking at SVS, what made you decide on the Plus?

Price. Found an Outlaw LFM-1 Plus locally via Craigslist for $350. Couldn't justify paying more than double for 2x PB-1000's or a PB-2000.
