I had a friend pm me and tell me he is having trouble getting his buttkicker mini LFE's setup properly with his INuke amp.
I told him it's all about the DSP settings and delays. He has four buttkicker mini's connected to an Inuke DSP 1000 amp. He should use this wiring diagram to connect the buttkicker at the correct ohm rating.
He can match what I've found to be my preferred DSP settings after lots of hours of tinkering if he is just running a straight flat subwoofer signal output. If he's running Audyssey he may have to tinker more - because my settings shown are for a flat frequency response output since I don't actually use Audyssey once it has done the initial level calibration and distance settings. I turn Audyssey off, because my subjective opinion is that Audyssey boosts treble too much on every single pair of main speakers I've ever tried in my reflective untreated room...
I have my Inuke DSP 3000 amp in dual mono mode and am using a single channel of mine at about 3/4 gain attenuation on the channel A knob. Since he has the Inuke DSP 1000 watt amp he needs to bridge his channels and the power to the transducers should be about the same.
THEN it's all about getting the delays set right. With my Onkyo TX-NR1007 - I set subwoofer 2 output delay to 4.5 feet. That's what seems to best match my Captivator subs which are set by Audyssey to be 10.5 feet away and are running on subwoofer output #1. (When you run Audyssey make sure the buttkickers are off BTW)
The way you set this is either on your AVR (if you have two subwoofer out jacks which can independently be level matched and delayed) by playing a song that has a strong repetitive bass line and then adjusting the distance while the song is playing to make sure the bass beats match the tactile feel. OR -- if you don't have two subwoofer outs - you'll need to set delays using the Inuke's DSP. This may be a challenge with a single subwoofer out. If it's a problem you'd need an external DSP to delay both physical subwoofer and tactile transducers appropriately. Something like the Behringer DCX-2496, or minidsp would work because you could set the AVR's subwoofer out to 0 delay (0 distance) and then split the signal in the DCX - and add the appropriate delays to both subwoofer and transducer individually.
These things are all about tinkering!Edited by Archaea - 12/13/13 at 2:28pm
