unbelievably angry at a random performance drop
So today I finally got a chance to watch a movie after about 3 weeks of work. As soon as I turned the movie on, I get a terrible output from my speakers. There was a big scene with drums at the start of the movie and my Front speakers sounded like they were 10 watt speakers that were trying to play full range bass. It sounded like you were trying to play bass through a speaker that wasn't designed for it, so it kept buffeting (that's the best way I can describe it). I am not a tinkerer. I am happy to set the system up once and just leave it be, and since last summer, it has just been left alone. No new equipment, sounded and looked great, but now I don't know what to make of this situation. I was listening to the movie in regular DTS-HD/Audyssey but I also tried other modes, like Direct and Pure Direct. It was worst in the "auto" mode. I even turned off my subwoofer hoping that maybe it was producing so much bass that it was causing this issue, but turning it off didn't change anything. Now i'm at a loss. Have any of you experienced this type of issue?
