Seaton nice I use the SW1 output on the 8801 and be sure when running Audyssey you tell it you have a sub in its setup menu as well. After a couple of test today using Star Wars ep.II and using the opening scene and the Asteroid scene I settled on 80hz for all speakers and the sub LPF set to 90hz, interestingly on the LPF a few threads back Roger D. recommended 80hz and was dead on in his assessment of better low frequency sound as I found the bass indeed sounded deeper and better defined in the lows, however I did play around with settings up to 120hz and this is where things indeed got interesting especaily if your sub is capable of playing cleanly up top which from what I hear the Seaton does very well the differences where very noticeable between the two scenes used on the opening scene I did prefer the 80hz setting as it revealed better tactile sensation when the cruiser is during its fly by, during the Asteroid scene 100-120hz won out because of the content that was mixed in up higher in the mix and had a very engaging cinematic feel in room lock and an immersive sound field , this indeed sucked as now I would have to find an in between to have the best of both and after a lot of going back and forth 90hz ( extension and impact) yielded the best of both worlds and sounded very nice, I'm glad I took the time to play around with this as it elevates the movie experience to a new level, give it a shot a let us know what you find
Between your suggestions, and, some offered to me by Rich, I plan to make some adjustments and see what differences I can hear.
I had planned on returning the Marantz in favor of keeping my Lexicon MC-12Bv5EQ. I'm curious if these changes to the settings will change my mind:rolleyes:
