So is it the more negative the db goes the louder or vise versa?
Erm yes, the Phase is 0 and the low pass filter is set to LFE.
I tried playing with the volume on the AVR in dB but I didn't hear any difference.
"Fairly large" tells me nothing...we need measurements.
The performance of your sub is directly related to the the cubic footage of your room - the larger the space, the more sub you'll need to pressurize the entire room. The shag carpet will have little to no effect on subwoofer frequencies.
If you want you're sub to play louder than calibrated, you would set the level in the AVR to a higher
I think you may have mis-read my previous question - when I asked if the bass sounded stronger elsewhere in the room, I meant that when you
move around the room are there any places that have nice, strong bass? Or, does the whole room sound as you are describing?
Have you done the SUB CRAWL
Change the filter/crossover setting on the sub to 80Hz. Make sure the crossover for L/R/C in the AVR is set to 80Hz also.
I respectfully disagree with this - you should either defeat the subs crossover or set it as high as it will go so the AVR can handle the crossover duties. If you set both to the same (or close to the same number) you will get some weird audio artifacts from the two crossovers fighting each other.
Just to be sure: you currently have all speakers set to "small", the crossover on the sub either defeated or maxed out, and the crossover for all speakers in the AVR set to 80hz, correct? If you do, and your still not getting any bass from the sub we'll have to try some other stuff.
