I've never noticed a problem with LFE in a theater.

As for down mix, it depends where it is done. Most players, like Blu-ray will drop the LFE totally if down mixed there. Most receivers mix it...

Bass below the crossover is not 10db hot, only the actual LFE content, the dedicated . 1 channel is boosted 10db. A crossover does not impact the LFE channel at all. So I think you are confusing the...

My guess is related to your motion settings? I believe anything other than Clear can have these issues. I use Clear and very rarely see any issues.

Copying settings from the web isn't a calibration and may or may not make your picture look better. If XBOX looks good then you are probably fine keeping in mind that cable channel sources can be...

The theater is hitting over 100db to get that in the chest feeling so you'll need more volume to get there.

What is your LFE low pass filter setting?

I'm curious what people set the LFE low pass filter (lpf) to in their receiver or pre/pro.

I know technically 120hz should be the correct setting as that is the limit of the LFE channel but in...

Sammy 6 series is what I replaced my Vizio M series with. Was a couple hundred more $$ but also 5" bigger. To me it is a much better TV (better reds, superior motion, blacks are worse)

To you and me and others yes. But there are people here in the Vizio threads who don't even notice the issue or it doesn't bother them. So 99% of the buying public doesn't either. They market the...
