Can anyone help me get my sub to work with music? My speakers provide plenty of bass for most music, but some bass demanding music still needs a sub... I can not figure this out.
I believe your problem has to do with the fact that stereo sources can have their very own configuration that can be different to your standard setup. I'm guessing this is so "audiophiles" with full-range front speakers can easily listen to 2-channel music without having to toggle the sub on and off each time. Not sure if this is what's happening with your setup, but it's worth a try
In the menu system (this is on page 30 of the 3808ci manual):
Manual Setup -> Audio Setup -> 2ch Direct/Stereo ->
Subwoofer Mode: LFE+Main
Crossover: 80Hz (or whatever you prefer)
Distance(s): Set to whatever you prefer.
Let us know if that does the trick.
