Yes, I ran the audyssey and it picks up my front stage but not the sub. I have an Onkyo NR616 and have the cable running from the sub pre out to lfe input on the back of sub. Sub is switched to ON position, tried crossover at every frequency on the back of sub, have it switched to digital receiver, etc. I know that I manually set the fronts to 80hz after I ran audysee, and maybe that's my problem. I didn't set it BEFORE running audysee, but I'm pretty sure I've ran audysee like 3 times now so unless it keeps reseting then that's not it..but I'll check again. I'm thinking it's a bad cable, and I've heard from others that they've recieved bad sub cables from monoprice. I love their hdmi cables (bought 8 of them) but I ordered another one from amazon just to be sure (plus needed more length). I'll post back after doing what you say, in the meantime can you think of anything else?
Also, when I tap the cable on the connector I don't hear anything. Shouldn't I hear the sub pop by tapping the end of connector? or does that only apply to the other connection? When I plug the sub in I can hear a very faint thump from the sub..so guess the sub is okay? It's a Bic America F-12 sub.
Btw.. my definitive tech speakers rock! Changing the audio to 5.1 in my Dune Player's settings did the trick and now the TrueHD tracks sound amazing with good separation (even w/out surrounds). I was told though.. to use my other matching front as my center, as it's supposed to be superior to a dedicated center (in my case the Pro Center 2000). I bought the Pro Center 2000 for like $300 and want to get some use out of this thing, but I also have a spare pair of Studio Monitor 350s. I'm using a pair of those for the fronts, and can swap out the center for another SM350.. but psychologically I feel that the 2 5.25" drivers in the Pro Center is going to give me better voices then the SM350, although it does have an 8" passive radiator. The Pro Center also looks (and fits) better under my tv, but I can certainly change that if a 3rd SM350 is going to be obviously superior. What do you think? The reason I haven't done it is because it's kinduva hassle to switch out in my entertainment center.. again no biggie but do you really think it's going to offer better center for me?
