Which pre-out? There are 12. ...and, no.

Yes, you connect your sub to the Subwoofer PreOUT...the other one is the multichannel analog INput, for a Blu-ray player, DVD player with analog multichannel output.

* If you have access to a manual it is clearly indicated which is what for.

Your sub goes nowhere else than the 805's Subwoofer preout. ...Other preouts won't work...there is no LFE audio signal coming out of them.

As I said, no, you won't get the same output. The sub out is typically only signals below 120 HZ. The other pre-outs would generally be 80 Hz-20,000 Hz, predicated by what the crossover is set to by Audessey.

I wonder why audyssey made the sub sound broken when connected to pre out. This only happened with my last calibration.

Probably because it was getting frequencies it wasn't designed for. Exactly which pre-out did you connect it to (left, right, etc)?

You are probably correct. It was connected to the sub pre out that says subwoofer in purple with green center channel right above.
Not the multi channel one.

The sub pre-out is the correct one. As NorthSky mentioned earlier, maybe you accidentally plugged into the subwoofer input in the MULTI CH group to the left of the pre-outs (it's happened to many people).

Maybe you have a bad mic? ...The one that comes with the 805 (black hockey puck) is not the best; and it needs to be installed on a mic stand with boom for optimal measuring performance. ...Much better than a camera tripod.

* When you upgrade to Audyssey MultEQ XT 32, with the pyramid mic; things start to gel better. ...Overall improved audio performance.
Nowadays you can get XT32 for a song.

But a working 805 is still a very powerful amp today, and it has the essence...Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA audio decoders.

<<<>>> Redo your Audyssey setup...try couple, triple times...till you're happy with the results coming out of your sub.
Keep that mic away from any nearby surfaces. ...And try couple inches or more higher than your ears.

I'll keep trying. I bought the onkyo nr646. Believe it or not it sounds really good considering no audyssey. The bass is really tight. With xt I couldn't feel it on the couch.
It has atmos and dts x.

I see now...and I believe you. ...The Onkyo 805 is from the 2007 era...it is missing a bunch of features...streaming...internet...Dolby Atmos...DTS:X...etc.

If your new 646 has preouts, you can use your old/solid 805's own internal amps...if...

No pre outs on the 646. I managed to get the 805 pre out to work. Not sure what happened the last time. I'm sure I connected it to a different output.
Since I was able to get it working I went ahead and compared the 805 to the 646.
All this was without audyssey. I noticed they both sound about the same but when audyssey is on it dampens the sound.
I might end up keeping the 646 mainly for the other features.
