Im more finicky with my 2 channel ,so you can see why this matters to me? What rca are you talking about on the back of my AVR?
Thanks , James C
Your 1222 is basically the same as my 1522 so best I can figure you need to change your receiver settings in a different way than what you did.
Sounds like you were using the subs on your mains and not using a separate dedicated sub, so yes just unhooking them will give you no base at all, so here's what you can do for that.
Speakers, 2 options(other than the way you had them)
1) Instead of running the LFE into the low input of your speakers, run RCA from your receivers individual speaker pre-amp outputs to the low input RCA on your speakers (if they have jumper bars with separate connections for mids/highs/low then make sure you remove the bars between the mid & low)
Then run speaker wire to the other speaker wire connections
Simply run speaker wire only to the speaker wire connections. (Re-connect your jumpers if you have them)
These are the 2 ways to wire your speakers.
Then you'll need to change and/or verify some settings on your receiver.
the manual speaker setup you'll want "all" of your speaker positions set to Large (because of the speakers you're using) and drop all the crossovers as low as they will go, then make sure your sub is set to NO/OFF, don't just run the level to 0, if your not running anything connected to the sub output it needs to be that way for all of the low signals to be sent to your other speakers instead of just being filtered out. (which is what you experienced)
if you do run it this way, you really do need to add a dedicated sub also for HT.
Basically, your crossover, sub and small/large settings are controlling which part of the signal goes where, with those speakers you can have the entire range of the signal go to each speaker if you like.
See if you like it this way.
(Don't forget to also play with the adjustments on the speakers themselves when you're doing your listening test, these adjustments will help individually tune your speakers further)
