My 65ts are drowning it out with bass and ambient noise (Loud Mids). My 15C produces loud voices but they seem a bit muffled, not crisp and i feel like Im getting more mid tones and less highs. Voices sound a bit deeper then I remember on shows I've seen for years.
Is there just a way to raise treble on my Denon E300? Would that help?
My crossover for my center and front is set to 80 hz my Subs cross over is set to 120hz.
What should I try?
Number of things you can try.
1st make sure your CC is working properly,,,,,hook it up to a left or right channel and play music or something you're familiar with.
If it doesn't sound right, a bad driver/tweeter will show itself.
You can try w/o Audyssey.....turn it off, purchase or borrow a SPL meter and set all channel levels the same.
Set speakers to small, x-over @ 80 and give that a try.
Altho no one asked, what is your room layout? Open concept, vaulted ceilings or even hardwood floors by any chance?
That can be a problem very easily.
