That exactly what my problem is. I ran Audyssey with Extension/ Damping set to Low and now I hardly hear the bass. On the other hand when the Extension/ Damping was set to Mid there was way too much bass.
When one uses LV12R with LFE the only "active" controls are Volume and Bass Extension (Damping).
I often see people using Low Extension and High Damping, but LV12R doesn't have separate controls for Extension and Damping.
The spec page on the website says:
Bass extension (damping) settings:
Low (19hz, Q=1.1)
Med (22hz, Q=0.9)
High (24hz, Q=0.8)
"Theoretically" one would want to set it to Low, this way the sub will go the deepest.
But apparently setting it to Low affects the bass output (or loudness, or trim level, or whatever the term is)
So knowing how Audyssey behaves, how Extension/ Damping on LV12R works?
How should it be set before calibration?
And after calibration?
Thanks Brian, I hope you will shed some light on this.
