So I have a chance to purchase a pair of bp3000tl at a very good price. What is the consensus on these particular speakers? I have 4x bp30 now but always wanted to try the powered version. Thanks

BP9020 subs slow to turn on

I have been battling the subs in my BP9020s since I got them.

I am driving the 9020s with a Denon AVR-S920W receiver. When I connected the 9020s only using the speaker outputs, the subs would not turn on until the volume was fairly load.

So I switched to dedicated sub cables from the Denon to the 9020s. I've had to crank the sub output on the receiver to get the 9020 subs to wake-up and am fighting too much bass when they wake up.

With the Denon at level 10 for the sub output, I have the 9020s set to about a quarter of the way up on their sub levels. Even with that, they stil; are not kicking in on lower volumes.

Never seen this before with DefTech or other pure subs I've used in the past. Since both speakers are acting up I'm stumped what the issue is. Appreciate any ideas.

Thanks

Do you think the GoldenEars are similar enough...i.e., bear enough "family resemblance"....that they'd blend well into a DefTech setup? I'm exploring options for four heights and I plan to go audition GEs this weekend. Problem is, of course, that the dealer's setup is GE all around.

I've been using various powered DTs for ages, and I've never seen that either. If only one does it, I'd assume it's defective. If they both do, it seems like something other 9020 owners would've mentioned.

Any chance you could try them with a different receiver? Just as a troubleshooting measure to eliminate the Denon's output as a cause.

Have they ever been repaired? Do you know the history on them?

Never heard anyone complain about a pair of 3000s aside from the fact they are pretty big towers.

I've been considering that - wondering if the Denon isn't pushing out the proper low end. Was hoping it wouldn't come to that since I'll need to purchase another receiver.
