Sony VW-5000ES Black output problem?

You have to turn on Laser dimming to "Full".
It's an option in the same menu as Laser Power.

I did not, because all my long cables are used with my Sony 5000ES, JVC RS4500, and JVC RS600, so none of these have any built in apps to test ARC with. Sorry I can't help more in that regard.

My understanding of his post is that horns have large wave guys with the driver set back quite a ways, and that the sound has spread out over a wider area before it leaves the speaker vs a dome...

For Stewart micro-perf screens, a speaker distance of 8"-12" has been the standard.

The Official 5000ES 4K Laser Sony Owner's Thread
