I just have a quick question that is "confusing" to me. When I play a movie, one with a lot of bass, I can sense my sub filling the room and my Crowson, which is tied into the LFE channel really lets me know it's working. For ex, I watched TRON and Interstellar recently. The room was full of bass and my chair was going nuts. But here is the perplexing part. If I go into the menu of my Marantz, and play the test tones, when I get to the sub I don't hear or feel anything. I have it at -2db. Even if I put all the way up. I can hardly hear it. But again, in movies, It can get very loud and I feel a lot. How is that possible. I am not complaining because my current setup really sounds good. I just find it very strange. Any ideas? Or should I let sleeping dogs lie.
Thanks.

The sound levels generated by the test tones also are controlled by the master volume control knob. It needs to be set to 0 (or 80, depending on the volume scale that you're using) in order for the test tones to output the reference sound level.

I did not know that. Reference for me is 0 so that's where I would to set it. So set it to 0 then do the test tones. Thanks for the info.
