If you set your speakers to small they will sound the best because of the signal sent to them and the sub will get all fq below 80 hz if that is what you set the avr crossover to. let the sub handle all the bass because it will sound better and dont set the crossover too high on the avr because then you will start to get unwanted sounds and maybe some dialog sent to the sub.

I set the AVR crossover to 80hz. I set my 2 channel to 60hz. That way I can listen to music without always using the sub. At low volumes it adds just a enough bass to sound good. Now if I turn it up to jam a little I will turn on the sub and move the crossover to 80.

I set my receiver mains for the E55ti to "Full" (rather than "Small" as often recommended) so they would get the full bass signal. The E55ti rolloff around 60hz so you want to set the sub crossover to 80hz. This way my 1010i sub get 80hz and below and the E55ti blend nicely down to the 60hz range.

Also I got a lot more bass by setting the audyssey reference level offset level to 0 (rather than the recommended 10 offset for tv/music).

Thats cool Keagy!
So would you recommend the 1010i for a sub? I was looking at that sub vs getting the SVS sb12-NSD sub and wanted to know your thoughts on the 1010i

I know you didn't ask me, but I feel the need to chime in.
The EMP looks good, but it only goes down to 35Hz. I would have a hard time spending money on the EMP when I could get a Hsu, Rhythmic, or SVS will go a lot lower, with more wattage, for the same money.

If the comment was directed at me, no, I don't. I hardly understand how that is relevant in an emp thread though.

Sorry, I was just making light of the fact that unsolicted opinions often get bantered around. EVERY time someone posts a Bose question, whether he asks for opinion or not, someone has to tell him that he was stupid for buying that junk. Kind of like posting negatives about EMP speakers in an EMP owner thread...

I think he was only referring to their subs. Could be wrong though

No worries. There has benn a lot of emp bashers lately so I understand where you are coming from. I too would rather have a different sub but the towers are great!

seems like there's a number of people including myself that are running a different sub other than Emptek's. For me, i'm using the sub i had purchased back when i swapped out my HTIB sub with a powered Klipsch. So i didn't feel the need to spend money on another sub when this thing is already hitting hard! i do wonder however if i'll hear a difference with a sealed sub vs my ported sub?

As a general rule of thumb......Sealed subs are better for music and Ported are better for HT,Of course there are exceptions to this from well made subs from Hsu,Epik,Svs,Def Tech and Rel....peter

If you want the best sub go with SVS or HSU. If you want a good sub that matches the rest of your speakers at a great price then go for the 1010i. I got E55Ti, E56Ci, 1010i and E55Wi as a package during the Black Friday sale. Lets be clear that this setup shakes my sofa when I play movies.

All these setting were made in my Denon 3311 avr including the sub crossover at 80hz. The E55ti mains blend really nicely with the 1010i sub.

ok so the avr is at 80hz. it sounded like you turned the knob on your sub to 80hz. I was saying to let your avr do the filtering and that is what you did.

It's better not to do that. All you're really doing is make the amps of your AVR work harder trying to reproduce the really low bass. It's better to let the sub do what it was designed to do. This takes a big load off of your receiver and gives you a lot more headroom and less distortion.

Awesome thanks again Keagy and everyone else for the sub question, yeah I will stick with SVS sb12-nsd for now, I think they should get the job done unless someone has something bad to say about them with good facts to back it up. For now I want to keep the sub purchase around 650.00 dollars pre-sub

SVS makes a great sub. Nothing bad to say about that sub. Why did you choose the SVS and what size room are you going to use it in?

I went with SVS due to their awesome customer services they had, every question I asked was dealt with in no more than 24 hours and always did a follow up with me to make sure my questions were answered to my expectations which impressed me a lot, I not sure if it's the same with the other companies like HSU or Rythmik but SVS right away got my business with that alone and the room I'm filling is small to medium 12' x 15' with 9 foot ceilings. But if other subs would fit better I will listen. Thanks

so my E55wi's should be in tomorrow and i wired everything up except i have 2 different outputs for my rears...surround L/R and Surround Back L/R. i'm only running 5.1 even tho my Pioneer 1121k allows me to run 9.2. which output should i use? i would reference back to the manual but my (cough...cough) wife misplaced it somewhere also, the Emptek speaker line are all 6 ohms correct? thanks!

For 5.1 use Surround L/R. Surround back would be in addition to that, for 7.1.

That sub will be good for that room size. It does seem like they have great customer service and from what other people have said also. I wish the sub company I have has as good CS. They are not that bad but have recently pissed me off. Good luck with all the setup and if you have any questions just ask.

You can also just use 1 surround back channel....I put an older ctr ch speaker behind me,in between the 2 surround speakers....worked out pretty good....peter

Also I got a lot more bass by setting the audyssey reference level offset level to 0 (rather than the recommended 10 offset for tv/music).

You are giving the usual advice on speaker settings. After 5 months playing with settings on my setup (Denon 3311, E55Ti, ES1010i) the best has been having the mains set to “full” so that the six bass drivers are adding everything they can. Lack of headroom and distortion have not been an issue. If you have massive sub(s) and weak amps in your avr then I would set the E55Ti to “small”. Gene DellaSala the guru at audioholics also recommended the E55Ti set to “full”.
