I switched back to yamaha ht5400 8 year old receiver and at volume lvl 10 def tech started blowing.
So far I have tried
1. Basic setup.
2. Large and small setting for tower speakers.
3. Adding sub from 1 and 2 receiver to tower speakers
4. reducing to 60hz and 100hz output
5. changing the speaker distance and enabling sound enhancer.
6. YPAO setup
7. increasing the db to +4 and played around with it.
Onkyo sound lvl 10 = Yamaha db lvl -32(Max is 16.5 db )
At this point, I am thinking of returning yamaha as it never drives the sub in def tech.
First thing I would try is doing a full manual setup, this will tell you if it's something in the receiver itself or simply in the setup.
-Run speaker wire only to the speakers
-Set the Sub dials on the speakers to 50%
-Turn off YPAO and all enhancements.
-Set your Sub setting to "none" (unless you have a separate discrete sub)
-Fronts and Center to Large
-Physically measure and set your distances
-With the volume dial at 0, run the test tones and calibrate each position to 85db (even a phone app SPL meter will be close enough for this experiment)
-Then listen to some content and adjust the subs on the speakers themselves to taste.
If this doesn't work for you then yes, something is going on with the receiver, if it does, it's simply something in the setup settings.
