Here is something i noticed.. When listening to music, i have to keep the gain at about 10oclock or so, and keep the subwoofer level on the receiver at 0db, and it will still start clipping at about 72 volume. However, when watching movies or TV, i can crank the gain all the way up, and turn the subwoofer level on the receiver to +12db, and not be clipping at 80+ volume.. Does this sound right to ya'll? I thought that Movie bass was more demanding than music bass? I watched the expendables II, just to check it, as it has lots of gunfire/explosions (such a cheesy movie btw, but still fun to see all the old guys together).
Not sure if it makes a huge difference, but i listen to movies and tv in ProLogicII/THX Cinema, and i listen to music in All Channel Stereo (because when im rocking out, i hardly just sit in the "sweet spot")
