OK, a few questions:
1. Obvious question, but did you turn it up? What volume levels are you using when you say you aren't feeling it?
Yes, I turned it up and it just seems dull. I had to turn the volume down on the subwoofer to get the audio level between -3 to +3db the volume setting on the subwoofer is at 8:00 position. It just seems dull. My other receiver was a Onkyo RC-230 basic model and I did the measurements but had the settings turned up high. I guess I'm trying to do it right this time and just not getting the "WOW Factor" I thought I would.
2. Is Dynamic Volume enabled? After Audyssey it asks you if you want it turned on, and if you said "Yes" it will be enabled for all inputs. Dyn Vol compresses the dynamics to keep volume more constant, but it will definitely limit the full ass-kicking effects of a big action movie soundtrack. Try turning it off (leave Dynamic EQ on though) and cranking the volume.
It was enabled but I now disabled it and turned it off while leaving Dynamic EQ on.
3. Maybe describe more about the lack of "feel"? It's possible that the subwoofer is undersized for your room. What model Polk is it and what are the room dimensions?
Polk PSW505 is the subwoofer that I have. The "feel" feels dull, no WOW Movie Theater type sound. Yes, I know the previous receiver was probably not set correctly but atleast with that when there was a scene with bass it boomed!
Yes, this is in the living room and the couch is against one wall directly above the back surround speakers and the TV along with the other 2 front speakers are above the television, Living room dimensions are 18x16.
Thank you very much for all this help.
