I wonder if my Denon 1613 is powerful enough to drive my system... - Page 2

Audyssey doesn't know there are two subs, only you (and we). smile.gif So, the general concensus on a dual sub configuration in a 5.1 system consists of the followings:

1. Place the subs to equal physical distance to the MLP (Main Listening Position).
2. Adjust gain knobs on both subs equally.
3. Run Audyssey auto setup.

As to your query on both subs firing during movies, but only one working during music: no idea, actually than shouldn't happen! eek.gifcool.gif Check again, please!

I bet I know why now that I thought about it again. I was turning the level up using the avr and since it only recognizes one, that's the one that increased. I then started changing the gain on that one sub and not the other.

Yeah I am sure that's the answer. Lots to learn in so
Title time.

Thanks

Once you have finished Audyssey auto setup it's advisable not to touch the gain knobs on the subs, ever! Some even put adhesive tape on them to prevent accidental adjustment. smile.gif Should you need to adjust sub gain always do it in the AVR.

as feri pointed out, it can't "recognize only one" if it's split before the subs... it doesn't "know", and has no way of knowing.... something else is up...

Hey new to this site just got the avr-1613
My question is I'm running psb 7pt's and paradigm pdr-12 sub cc-390 center and atoms as rears all version 4
And im just trying to learn how to properly configure everything my last receiver was the 688 and the user interface is was amazing and easy to get detail settings
But this new user interface is confusing maybe its too simple but where are the detailed settings??
