Interesting observation...switch from a Yamaha vx373 to a Marantz NR1504 with Audessey room correction. Hooked up the new receiver, ran room correction at 3 positions and put in EoT...and the open scene nearly blasted my house off the foundation, and definately bottomed out both subwoofers. Gain on both sub set at 40%...
So I went in and "toned down" the sub about 5 db, but still so loud (Audessey had them set at -8dB, i think). Even after the 5 db dress down, the opening scene still sound unhealthy for my subs at an overall volume that I can barely hear dialogue on. Of course, I will go in and dress down the subs again, but any thoughts as to why audessey set my sub volume so high compared to the other speakers?
Spring has hit Iowa, so I haven't been using my theater as much, but at least one other movie with some bass heavy scenes, I don't remember this issue!
