This feeds the standard bass thru the speaker wires, and then layers on top of it another shot of bass again thru the LFE in, yielding "Double Bass". This is not really correct in terms of the most natural sound, but if this sounds better to you, so be it. It is all personal, after all. If all your settings are correct, when listening to two channel material, you should be getting no signal thru the LFE out, unless you are using Double Bass or, as you are doing, running Pre-Out into the LFE in. In terms of what you are hearing with movies, it is possible that bass management is sending the LFE into nowhere. I would guess that you have it set to Large Left and Right and Sub Yes. With the way you have the Pre-Out into the LFE-In, the LFE signal would not be outputted, as it would come out of LFE Out, but you are not using it, and would not be present in the speaker level out or Pre-Out, which would be the same, just Left and Right channel, and would not contain LFE. Thanks, Sandy
Wow Sandy thank you for responding.
I did not realize by connecting the left and right pre-outs I would be giving it a double bass signal.
I thought I would be giving it a full range signal, and that was why it was sounding better.
The funny thing is I thought by adding a bass boost in effect would give me terrible sound but find the bass is still very controlled and tight.
Just more to my liking as you said.
I love my Golden Ear speakers and will upgrade again some time in the future and move the older speakers upstairs lol.
Thanks again. Neal.
