Dynamic Volume: off
Subwoofer volume Level: -3.5 db

Subwoofer: SVS PB 2000
Volume set to 12o Clock
Low Pass Filter set to 120Hz
Phase set to 0

I ran the audyssey on the receiver but still feel something is missing..
I had a similar experience last week with a similar setup. I must've messed with the receiver settings/sub placement for at least 6hrs. The last thing I did before giving up was swapping my old Pioneer VSX-32 with the Denon. Right away I noticed that both the sub and the RF82II's sounded better with the Pioneer. I was surprised since the Pioneer is weaker and is almost 4 years older.

Why does the sub need to be turned up higher? I've always had my PB2000 in the 12-1 o'clock range. Depending on the room it would set the trim on my Pioneer/Denon to -3 to -4.5. I was told by the guys at SVS that as long as it's not in the positive side that it was fine. I also gives me a little room to turn up the sub a few dbs if I want.

What is source? If it is Blu-ray - did you turn on bit streaming on your player audio settings

Denon X4000 is on the brighter side; but I suggest re-run your audyssey with multiple positions (4 or more) and make sure you are selecting DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD on your AVR to get SQ of your liking

Thanks for all your replies.

I will increase the volume on the sub and see if it improves the sound.

Also, How do I get the sound crispness with these speakers? what factors for the crispness in the sound? Is it the crossover frequency or by design, these speakers are bright?

I had always set my sound mode to Dolby Surrounds (PL II Cinema), changed the sound mode to DTS but do not see noticeable difference.

He asked why his system was lacking in bass. I told him to turn the sub volume up. Most SVS owners and especially the ones that came from a cheap budget boomy sub that thought it sounded loud but actually was distortion are not used to the flat smooth bass from an SVS. Most need to turn the volume up and 2-3 o'clock seems to be the desired mark to achieve what the owner wants. I'm not saying everyone does that but most run an SVS 3-6 db's hot.

The sub volume (gain) does not need turned up if the AVR is setting it at -3.5. You only need to raise this if the AVR is setting it in the plus (+). This control is different for every room.

Run Audyssey again and keep the mic close to the main listening position. Don't spread it out to each seat in the room. Just move it 6" left/right/front/back. Also be sure to use a mic boom, or camera stand. You may find you just don't like horns. If all else fails try using the Mains+LFE feature.

If you turn up the volume on your sub than be sure to run Audyssey again. You don't need to turn it up if Audyssey detected it at -3.5. I have a different sub, but my subs are off at 6:30 at I have mine set around 8 o'clock (and that's probably a tad high). This really means nothing though, as every room is different and 10 people can have your same sub but have completely different volume settings. Room size, and room treatments play a big factor in the sub volume. No two rooms are a like. If your AVR gets anywhere near +- 12 you need to adjust the volume. -3.5 is a good setting though. If you like to run a little hot than try adjusting the SPL in the AVR (not subs volume control) to -0.5 . This will set your sub 3db hot and is a common practice. I run mine 3db hot.

Also follow my last suggestion and run Audyssey again.

Is this a whole new setup?

Either way make sure that your Center Channel Speaker is properly angled up or down so that the center of it is aimed properly at your MLP.

You front Mains should at least 6 to 8 feet apart (or more) and "Toed In" also towards the MLP. I have a very similar setup as you and I love it.

Other things that could cause an issue is / are Hardwood Floors, not a lot of material around the room to absorb the sound. Even something as simple as a glass table somewhere in the area of the MLP can cause the setup to over compensate.

The sub volume needs to be turned up if my ears says it needs to be turned up. Again it depends on what the listener desires for bass. Yes the room does make the difference in where you should start your volume at when calibrating. Some people prefer running their subs more than 6db's hot. Btw he could go 3 db's hotter and still be at -0.5. He would still be in the negative lol. Is that ok for you?

You missed my point. You don't adjust gain by the sub volume. -3.5 is a very good spot for Audyssey.

Edit: If you want to run hot, you adjust the AVR.

Turn sub volume up to 2-3 o'clock. Rerun audyssey. Should now be around -8 to -9. Check with SPL meter to see exactly how hot your running. Adjust again per your liking. My sub runs at 81 dbs with test tone.

I'm not trying to argue with you. Just wanted to point out that no matter where he sets his subs volume control Audyssey is going to compensate and adjust it to Reference, unless it reads -+12 (as that as far as Audyssey can adjust). His first attempt was fine as Audyssey detected him as being 3.5 hot already. If he adjust his "AVR" setting to -0.5 he would now be running 3db hot.

-3.5 setting with the subs volume control is a pretty good spot. You don't want to be to far off from zero in the AVR, but if he run 3db hot (adjusting the AVR) he will be about as close to zero as your going to get.

gsrinivas, I forgot to mention that you might try crossover at 60Hz and see if that helps you.

Merry Christmas everyone! Can anyone recommend me some decent budget speaker stands for RB-61s as surrounds? I'm thinking around 40-45" in height. Cheers.

Just bought some "RB-61 II" at 55% discount because of some cosmetic damage to the covers.

Would love to get some RF-62 II but i dont have room for them currently.
When i do have room these can become the rears for 5.1
