Thanks batpig for the speedy response!
I use a Y-cable as it is for the sub, it is 5 meters long, that could be a factor maybe? However, it is a quality cable which my dealer gave me free with the purchase of the speakers and I am getting a very solid bass signal from the receiver. The sub just doesn't fit next to the TV anymore with the new tower speakers!
I have the SW at -12db, audyssey had set it at -9.5db. I will try to mess with the volume and the SW level tonight. I tend to tinker with that feature often anyway, while every movie soundtrack seems to volumize channel level so differently (especially center channel). I wish I could check this now but it is 6:20 am here and we live in an apartment oO
I read through your new FAQ section regarding taming bass. Very interesting! Luckily our neighbors are cool and the apartment very well insulated, so we don't have problems with the neighbors, but I still have to keep the beast tame! I shall be busy tinkering with that tonight as well. I guess the Source Level trick works for the 2009 models as well eh? I know this feature exists on my 2309...I will let you know how it works out tonight.
