2ND question .. My Samsung TV has youtube HD pre install , therefore no HDMI needed to watch or listen . How do i get the sound to come thru my 5.1 speakers via receiver.
I have the mirage nanosat 5.1 speaker set up .
At one point i made some adjustment while watching mission impossible- at volume 40 i had to turn it down, the sound was amazing but i have no idea what i did .
I did the calibration and running the latest firmware ..
I have 8ft ceiling ..13/16 room.
These are my calibrated settings..
center 150 hz
surround 150 hz
Sub woofer -15db
back of my sub woofer
volume level max
low pass filter 110 hz
Any recommendations to change these settings .. Thanks in advance
I figured someone else would pick up on this, but I guess not. If your low pass filter on your sub is only letting in frequencies below 110hz, and your speakers are set at 150Hz, then you're missing the whole frequency range between 110-150Hz. The lowpass on your sub should be set higher than whatever the speakers are set at. In practice, since the receiver is only sending it the signal it needs, you can just turn the low-pass filter on the sub itself all the way up, so it's completely under the control of the receiver. Once you have it turned up, run Audyssey again. Volume level (gain) on sub should be at about 9-11'oclock position (between quarter and almost half) then verify Audyssey setting on sub is between -15 and 0. If it's right at -15, turn it down (on the sub) a little more, because that's the max range Audyssey has, so it's trying to turn it down more to blend it in, but it's maxed, so reduce it a bit on the sub and run Audyssey again.
Ah, just looked up your system. Maximum freq for sub is 120Hz, so have the lowpass turned all the way up. and try setting the speakers at 110hz, that's what they're supposed to be capable of, see how it sounds and compare it to setting them at 120hz.. 150hz is too high because your sub only goes up to 120Hz, so you'll end up with a big blank spot in your music between 120hz and 150Hz.
