Yes, a sub would be a much better idea to be honest. For music I would recommend a sealed sub from Rythmik, or one from Martin Logan.

I just got a Depth i recently, and absolutely love it. They are going to be discontinued soon and are on sale everywhere. It pairs very well with my mains (Martin Logan Motion 40's) for 2ch and still digs deep enough for HT. It has the woofer area of a 15" but in a very compact and nice looking enclosure.

WOW... I am sure they sound great but way out of my price range at $1,000

Do you have to spend that much to get really nice deep, ass shaking bass?

Frequency range (-6dB) 35Hz - 45kHz
Frequency response (±3dB) 40Hz - 28kHz

while it's very good bass response, this is not subwoofer territory by any stretch. look at the 40 Hz spec which is 3 dB down from the avg level. very respectable. so if you're not getting any appreciable bass, then you are probably sitting in a bass null where you expect to hear what most call "bass", the 60 Hz region. the only cure for that is move your seat.

have you done any of the things, I and some others suggested? walked around your room, move your head a ft or 2 forward or backwards while playing a test tone or strong bass line and see if it gets stronger?

and yes, you need a subwoofer to duplicate the bass you hear in a sound effects laden movie.

the only speakers I ever owned that had huge bass output were Acoustic Research towers I bought in the 80's, which had 2 - 12 in true woofers, 1 on each side. no passive radiators to enhance the bass, like your KEF's but real subwoofer sized woofers wink.gif those were truly capable of reaching to 20 hz region but in every other aspect, their sound sucked, the worst speakers I ever owned - no depth, no imaging, and harsh highs, they couldn't hold a candle to my 1st Magnepans @ $500 that had much less bass.

if you are truly interested in having big bass for home theater, a good sub is mandatory. not some wimpy 8" job, capable of 30 hz or so, you need to get something that gets to at least mid-20's and preferably 20Hz (or lower). they don't come cheap but there are excellent choices, Velodyne, Fathom are good choices for sealed cabinet, servo controlled designs and are in the high price end. SVS, HSU Research, Rhythmic are excellent choices that won't break the bank. personally, I'd take a good look at SVS. they have some very capable subs.

I don't know exactly why your setup is under-performing, I don't think anyone here can tell you why...we can offer ideas and that's it.

but the 1st thing I would do is >>> MOVE your head and/or MOVE the KEF's! Try moving them further away from the front wall. move 'em out 3-5 ft and listen again. people who place their speakers right against the front wall so they look nice with the TV may be compromising their performance. ANY speaker sounds better moved away from the front wall - they'll image better, have more soundstage depth and possibly have better bass response. if you have yours against the wall, try moving them out at least several feet, even if they're in front of the plane of the TV. you have nothing to lose and they might sound better.

and I have to ask, are you sure you have the bi-amp knob turned the right way so that you haven't disabled the woofer? wink.gif

and remember, because you have no sub, the Pioneer should have set them to Large and unless you have a center or surrounds, you don't set the crossover, it should be grayed out. the fronts should be getting a full-range signal. but Pure Direct defeats any bass mgmt anyway so that's the true test of what your fronts can do by themselves.

Yes I have tried a little to move my speakers. I moved them 1ft away from the rear wall and the sound improved, as well as the bass. I have a ported 80W pioneer sub hooked up for the low end because I just wasn't getting it from those speakers, no matter what I did.

do you think I will have to spend in the thousand dollar range to get a good sub? (I live in Canada). The speakers right now are passive bi-amped and the knob's are turned so that I can see the yellow. (we tried by-passing that switch last night with a jumper as well).

As far as speaker placement, right now they are 1ft from the rear wall (10ft away from sitting area). and about 7ft apart, toed in towards the main sitting area. I couldn't move them 5ft from that wall or they will be in the middle of the room. The room is a bonus room with a stair case that leads into it. At the bottom of the 3 stair's into the room is another set of long stairs( probably about 12 or so) which opens up into a very tall entrance way (I bet its about a 20ft ceiling in the front. Could all that sound get pushed down those stairs and into that very large, open space? I wonder what would happen if I switch the room around and had the speakers facing the close area of the room rather then that little stair area that open up to that large vast space. When I listen to music I can hear it very clearly from downstairs on the main level in the kitchen..... maybe you are on to something here!!!

I am going to take pictures of the room and post them.... see what you think.

Thanks again, I am sure these speakers are great and something is wrong. I can't give up on this.

I had this problem with my Klipsch RF-7 speakers. What I found was set the speakers to large and go into the settings and turn up the low end frequencies. Then crank up the volume super high.

Pioneer Elite SC-77 full MCACC results.

3.1 system / fronts and center set to small / crossover 80Hz

Sounds bright and maybe a touch grainy in the midrange which is odd for Pioneer.

post #4566 of 5315
Try setting all the 8 kHz EQ settings to 0 dB.

These speakers blow if that is the case!! Might as well send them back because they are not worth the money, I wouldn't even spend $300 per speaker on this sound. Flat, and no life. What a waste of money!

jer - in the Pioneer thread you stated you turned the bi-amp knob to where the yellow was showing and you have passive bi-amped. you know, some of us keep saying "don't bother" with bi-amping but did you even try to use it normally?

are you even sure you selected the correct speaker mode in the Pioneer to even run them bi-amped? because if you left it at the default setting of 9.1 Normal, you wouldn't get bi-amped use of the amps. and if you did select one of the Speaker Bi-amp modes, are you sure you connected to the correct receiver terminals as shown in the manual?

my advice before you go down more rabbit holes - start with the basic normal 1 amp per speaker setup! and evaluate. this saga has been going on and on in multiple threads and you seem no closer to the truth and a whole lot of non-relevant side tangents - amps, which amps, positioning. and NO external amp is going to make the speakers sound better in the bass. especially if you have a screwed up setup wink.gif

you keep wanting to look to go the most convoluted route when you should be looking at the simplest things first.

1. Connect the speakers with ONE cable to the correct speaker terminals for single wire use.
2. Turn that damn bi-wire/bi-amp knob to where it's in single wire mode (yellow not showing)
3. Set the receiver to NORMAL 9.1 Speaker mode in Speaker Setup menu. Forget that you only have 2 speakers now. At least start with something that's the most straightforward setup.
4. For now, do not connect the sub
5. Change the front speakers to Large, if they are not already set that way.
6. Change surround mode to PURE DIRECT only for now.
7. Play 2 ch source with some bass.
8. Evaluate the fronts by themselves, move them another ft or so away from wall if you'd like. Compare.

If you get bass now, then the whole problem was in your setup, either wrong receiver speaker setup not being in a Bi-Amp mode, connected to wrong terminals for bi-amp. By going back to a normal use, you can eliminate setup mistakes from the equation. If you haven't done these things yet, then you are not in the position of faulting the speakers. No matter what your supposed "professional installer" rolleyes.gif says.

If you finally get better bass from a simple setup, then you can add a good sub, look at bi-amp option, set the speakers to Small and use bass mgmt with a good sub to improve on what you have, etc.

If you have and still have lousy bass from a simple one amp setup, then the speakers may not be the best for what you want to hear.

I don't know what more to say. Many here have tried to offer damn good suggestions and guess at all the possibilities. But if you are hellbent on trying passive bi-amping, no matter advice we give and have managed to do the setup incorrectly, then you are not optimizing all our time wink.gif. If you did try a simple normal amp setup and no happy, that's a different story.

But I have lost track of what you have done & not done, since there are many posts in several threads. And you have gotten so many opinions, from trying different amps to room acoustics...when how you did the receiver & speaker setup to begin with may be the main problem.

To me, that knob is a stupid idea, because it tempts people to try things and get themselves into trouble or accidentally set the knob in the wrong direction since so many don't bother to read manuals nowadays. so they accidentally disable the woofers! and then have pissed off owners rolleyes.gif IMHO, removing a jumper = a deliberate act to do something not the norm, and no chance of making a mistake, and newbies will be less likely to remove jumpers until they know what they are doing.

If you tried the above 1 amp setup with Pioneer set to Normal Speaker setup already, let us know.

So you are suggesting to leave the setting to large and change the manual EQ to what your screen shoot reads?

I really do appreciate all the help that you have provided. I am learning as I go. I have tried everything that you have suggested and in all honesty there is really not that much bass on those speakers. I have my little sub hooked up and with it the system doesn't sound bad by any means. I usually play music in stereo or direct, not pure direct as I find it a little too flat. My speakers right now are set to "small" and sub "plus" and I believe that is the only way to get any bass in the music. I have ran everything bare bones (single wired, pure direct, large speakers, knobs NOT showing yellow, no EQ) and everything sounds very flat.

exactly - go in and manually adjust the eqs if you don't like the MCACC results. You don't HAVE to do what the machine tells you!

np
we all are smile.gif I replied more in your KEF thread. I know I gave basic advice in a blunt way, not knowing where you started with this. but it sounds like you have done a whole lot of experimenting. and maybe a lot of patience smile.gif

I have much to learn too. I've never had a projector setup and I hope to venture into that unknown next year. and I'll have lots of questions for owners of projector I end up buying - and I'll be pretty green to them wink.gif and I know some will tell me to read the manual, which of course I will have wink.gif
post #4573 of 5315
The only reason the RF 7 or RF 7II don't have enough bass is the setup/equipment or the person is an extreme bass lover, lol. My RF 7's are fairly close to the wall and are set to small.

Yes, crank the low frequency up as high as it will go just for testing to see if it makes a difference. When I did this with my RF-7s they would pound my chest like a sludge hammer. As mentioned; play around with the EQ settings and have fun tweaking them to your liking. I use mcacc for a starting point or foundation to make adjustment from there.

I need some direction.
I recently bought an SC-65.
My setup is setup like so:
L/R = 16Ohm Bozak 305's (2 12" woofers per cabinet. large cabinets)
Center = No center
Front High L/R = Klipsch quintet 2
Surround L/R = Klipsch quintet 2
Sub = 12" that came with the quintet.

I'm fairly satisfied with the sound so far but I am the kind that likes to constantly upgrade.
Everyone I know that has Bozak's says that early McIntosh amps (with autoformers and a 16ohm tap) work best with them. Think MC2100/MC2105.
That will probably be the first upgrade I do.
The second will probably be the addition of a pair of Hsu Research 15's (ULS-15 DualDrive).
Do these sound like decent upgrades?

The quintet are way to small and a center channel is needed for HT. Decide on what direction you are going for speakers. List a budget and consider the used market.
post #4577 of 5315
Thanks for the reply!
So, do you think that larger surrounds (and front heights) a dedicated center channel should be the first area for upgrades?
I take it you're not a fan of "phantom" center channels?
post #4578 of 5315
I had a couple questions....

There is a standing wave control in the audio setting options. Turning that on and off simply activates what mcacc has calibrated, ..... Correct?

In the standing wave section (on the ipad app mcacc section) there is a trim setting. Ive never seen this correlate with any other trim setting. The setting is not anything I seem to be able to adjust either. Anyone know if this setting is adjustable and what it means? Its odd because the data shows a boost or cut for each standing wave, AND a trim.

The ipad app has a mcacc section. It displays a lot of what the pc app appears to display, including reverb and other measurements in 2d and 3d. Does the pc app offer anything more over the ipad app?

After running MCACC, it's terribly bright and forward with no meaty lower midrange like on the 1222. I've followed the steps posted here and on other forums although the SC-77's user interface is different. Just wondering if the 1222-K is a fluke and most MCACC calibrations are harsh and forward. I've experimented with the reverb timings, crossovers so I guess I'll return it.

I've found a few things that might factor into this. First, if manually setting the speaker sizes to small which I think is preferable in most cases, the MCACC needs to be run as "Auto MCACC" with "Keep SP System" after setting the speakers to small. The first time I set up, I made the mistake of running "Full Auto MCACC" which set all my speakers to large, which I then manually set to small. This did not yield anywhere near as much bass.

X-Curve. I initially set the X-Curve to 1.0 dB based on the square footage of my room, per the manual. I found that on a few CDs with orchestral music that lower midrange was weak and the music sounded somewhat bright and fatiguing. My room has a vaulted ceiling and open extensions into another room, a stairway, an entryway and a hallway (which add volume, but none of which are considered in the square footage of floor area). I changed the X-Curve to 1.5 dB, which initially didn't sound like much difference, but it seems to have brought the life back to these CDs, particularly warming up the lower midrange. I suggest experimenting with the X-Curve if things sound bright and forward.

The SC-77 definitely had a graininess or harshness (it seemed most apparent to me in the spoken letter "s") when it was brand new. My experience is that it requires several hours of "break-in" to make it sound it's best.

KC-Technerd - I think you solved the issue for me. I was just using Full MCACC assuming my settings would be intact when they were obviously not. I had resorted to listening to the SC-77 without room correction, and was actually enjoying aside from some boom and jumbled lower mids. I'll now play with X-Curve.

Description of your room was almost eery as it's nearly identical to mine.

I really appreciate you posting this!
post #4581 of 5315
^ I should specify that it was in the "STEREO" listening mode where the X-curve seemed to make a difference on those CDs that sounded bright and/or harsh. I wasn't having any problem with multi-channel movie sound, for which I use the THX CINEMA (w/PLII MV if necessary) listening mode. "X-Curve isn’t applied when you’re using any of the Home THX, Pure direct or Optimum surround modes."

Understood about Stereo and that was my primary concern. Sounds so much better now. Also, 100% agree about the receiver needing some break in time.

Appreciate the thread. I'm learning a lot. Hopefully this is an easy question. I picked up a new SC-77 a couple of days ago. There is a blue MCACC led on the left side of the receiver's display. I know I seen this lit the 2nd day after purchase but at some point during that day it went off and has remained off. The manual states this will be lit when EQ is on and EQ can be checked by selecting the Audio Parameter button on remote. I have verified EQ is on but the LED is off. I ran Full Auto MCACC the first day I owned it. Any thoughts as to why it's off and how to turn it on or do you think it could be defective? Thanks!

post #4584 of 5315
The MCACC LED has been on continuously on the SC-77 I have. Might want to perform a factory reset just in case.

1. Power down the SC-77
2. Open front panel
3. Press and hold the center "Enter" button and press the power button
4. Use the directional buttons to select appropriate action and press Enter
5. Receiver will reset and reboot
post #4585 of 5315
Sorry for the off topic. But I heard a rumor that they will be another flag ship AVR to replace the SC-09TX? Is this true?
post #4586 of 5315
What rumor? I wish.
post #4587 of 5315
Oh man! Wish it was true.. Guess I'm still holding on to mines yet. Only problem I had was the DTS bomb. But that's resolved. Other then that still a solid AVR.

Are you in Pure Direct sound mode? That would turn it off, since nearly all digital processing is turned off. Use your remote to select Auto Surround, a THX, Dolby or DTS sound mode and that will take it out of Pure Direct. If you are 100% sure your receiver or TV OSD doesn't say Pure Direct, then check to make sure you have selected a calibrated MCACC preset, one of the ones who did during calibration, probably Symmetry is best since that's the 1st one to be calibrated.

Just wondering if anyone is only running STEREO for @ channel music and if so what is your EQ set to? Also what is your fav. setting for movies?
