Hi
I just got my Onkyo TX-NR818 and never had a XT32 set-up before.

I have done 8 position set up twice and had about a week to get used to it.

I am finding the lack of bass really annoying, I even changed my RX6 from 40hz to 80hz and still not great.

It asked me to set my subwoofer up to 75db (svs pc-13ultra) and I can hardly heaqr the bass, and even when I put bass test tones on, it was not as it was before, you really need to push it to feel the bass as I did with my pioneer sc-lx72.

Do you guys run your subwoofer hot at say, 90db instead of 75?

Whats your thought and help on this, thanks so much.

I have a denon 4311 and had the same issue. I turned up the volume knob on my subs. Problem solved.

Yeh thats what I did. biggrin.gif

Was just wondering if it was better just to turn the sub up to 90db and re-run xt32.

I cant see how XT32 eq's the subwoofer, when all it has done is told me to turn the sub down to 75db ,I could have done that on my Pioneer.

And when I turn the subwoofer up, it sounds exactly like it did before, which is strange.

Thanks again.

^^^

15 db hot??? eek.gif

what you are likely "hearing" (in terms of "lack of bass") is that the eq has knocked off a peak (or two) that you were interpreting as "good bass"... this is rather common amoungst users who are using audyssey for the first time...

you would be advised to go to the audyssey thread, go to the first post, and thoroughly read the FAQ's and help documents...

I have 2 subs. When I ran audyssey at first, it stated I had to turn down the volume until it was around 75db. In my case this had the volume on both subs at about 25%. Audyssey then ran and said I had one sub. I re-ran it and the same thing happened.

I got new furniture a week later and decided to re-run it and it picked up both subs fine. It set the sub gain at -7.5db. It didn't sound right so I turned the sub voume up to about 33% and it sounded better.

I have a 11.2 4311 system with an external NAD 5 channel amp for LCR and wides and it sounds fantastic. I don't think the sound has much room for improvement. Audyssey is kind of flakey, but with patience it produces good results.
