Craig, as you suggested I set my main's to large and turned off the sub in the SC-55 settings. Ran the test tones and notice right away that I had the built in subs in the 7002s (not hooked up through the LFE) set to high, around the 9 o'clock position. Even after adjusting them to the 4 o'clock position I still had to set my volume on SC-55 to 0 in order for he 100+ to raise any.
Set my SC-55 settings back to small and "yes" for sub. Reran the test tones through the SMS-1. Set the volume on the SC-55 to 0 and had to set the volume on the SMS-1 to 3 and the graph below is what I came up with. I am pretty sure this is not correct because once I played some music or a movie there was ZERO base.
So I turned the volume up on the SMS-1 to about 34 and had great bass but knew it was a little much. So I went back to my SC-55 settings, ran the test tones, used my SPL meter to read about 77db by adjusting the volume on the SMS-1 to about 20. This sounded great.
Just a reminder I have calibrated both subs with my SPL meter to read between 75db and 77db.
Then I wanted to hear the difference between the SC-55 w/out the SMS-1 and to be honest I really could not hear a difference. I feel like I am back to square one or I just suck at setting this thing up
