I've found on models with the compact amp like LV12R and L12, Line In sounds best but I do leave crossover knob at max and 12dB LPF slope. Reducing the crossover knob and/or using 24dB LPF slope makes the mid to upper bass too thin and weak.

Also, using a 100Hz global crossover in the AVR is a lot more seamless with the L12 than the LV12R.

(My speakers can handle a 80Hz crossover easily but the in room response has big dips/nulls under 100Hz or so... therefore the higher than normal crossover is very helpful.)

Another thing is my AVR (Yamaha 2070) has separate crossovers for each speaker pair and the center but I find the bass coming from the sub is more uniform for speaker to speaker with a single global crossover. My ears are particularly sensitive to that.

I am glad HT is working well. I agree with plasma80Z in trying out the Line-in. There are some discussions on this forum about double filtering etc. But in reality, SUB out from AVR is only digitally filtered. Depending on brands, some noise can leak into SUB out. In this case, a gradual filtering in LINE-in (with XOVER knob to max and LPF at AVR/12) can fix the problem. Sub level is another consideration. In HT a couple of db hot is good. But for music, one may want to reduce the boost a little bit.

I feel like even in HT there 120hz LFE that the audyssey sets is a little to high (denon-avr-x8500h-receiver). Not sure. But I will change to line out today. What changes do I need to try in avr and amp on sub? I am gonna take a pict of my current settings for just in case. Also in avr, what sub level db is everyone running? Are you using the volume know on back of sub to fine tune output volume during listening? Or in avr?
I would prefer to make adjustments on sub, due to avr being in closet. Havent purchased a rf universal remote yet.

Just a fyi, I'm not knowledgeable on terms, but have a great ear for music. So excuse me if I dont understand tech slang. Please keep it as basic as possible for me.

The LFE setting is not in general the same as the sub/mains crossovers. Some AVRs send LFE energy over the crossover into the other speakers and some do not (my old Pioneer did not). The Low Frequency Effects channel is a separate effects channel for movies like the left, right or surround channels. Bass management sends energy from the main channels (typically the L/R channels, some sum from all channels) that is below the crossover to the subwoofer.

I would try setting the crossover to 12 dB/AVR and 80 Hz on the sub for starters. Opinions vary about level; I would adjust the AVR's sub level control so the trim level is perhaps -3 dB then adjust the sub to taste after that by turning up the volume (or down) as desired (without rerunning Audyssey).

You may need to move the sub or listening position a bit for optimal performance.

So you want me to turn the volume on the avr sub level to 12db? Should I still use the line vs lfe input?

No, the lowpass selector to AVR/12. Check the installation guide. It may be worthwhile emailing or calling Rythmik to have them walk you through the procedure.

They don’t really have a set up to demo stuff as it’s a warehouse. You contact them and see.

I am in the same boat and was able to work out an arrangement several years ago. I'd contact them to see what they can do for you.

Thanks. I'm still probably about 4 months away from buying anything so I'll contact them a little closer to that time. Was hoping I could pop in over lunch or something to satisfying my curiosity, but I don't want to waste anybodies time right now.

We don't have demo room in our location. It's a warehouse with an office. But if you are local, you can for sure come by, look at the subwoofers and get the subwoofer you like, bring it to your home and demo it. You have 45 days to try it. If you don't like it, just bring it back for a full refund. Easy peasy

Yep, this is exactly what I did. Couldn't remember if that was an official policy or if you were just letting me do it, so glad to hear this is an official policy. I actually ended up taking both a ported and sealed sub to try out so I could compare them both, ended up returning the ported and getting a second sealed. Love them!

given my experience from the LV12R for 3 years to the L12 recently, you are in for a real treat... going to the F18 is quite the upgrade

Looking for a technical explanation why dual G25HP’s have a fuller, deeper, richer bass response across the spectrum and especially at lower volumes (52-55db) and have less wall penetrating bass vs my previous subs both the PB16’s and the SB16’s.

I’ve noticed I can run the bass louder AND have less of the bass escaping the sealed room while maintainer clarity like I’ve never experienced.

I know the TR discussion is ever current here but this is just an observation, a statement, and a question. I’m practically in awe at the bass I hear at very comfortable listening levels, and pleasantly surprised I can hear more of it without my wife texting me to turn it down in the late hours which used to happen.. always. I’m in awe because of how loud I can listen without it disturbing others in the house.

So what is the magic on why I can get a highly improved bass response in every way (cleaner, deeper, more output) compared to similar depth and output with much more wall penetrating bass? I much prefer the contained bass as it lets me enjoy it without disrupting the family.

I know I’m sitting in the best spot I have available which is maximizing what I hear, and maybe that’s all it comes down to compared to my previous subs.. but it just seems like I have “more usable bass” if that makes sense.

^^ I think it mostly due to cleaner/tighter less distortion sound from the G25hp’s.

IME, less "leakage" into other areas of the house means you got the time-alignment right.

Did you do anything different with the new subs in that regard??

these rythmik subs can be adjusted just about anyway you want. I can get mine to have actually no ringing, and also be full blown vibrating my house apart. all depends how you like them setup imo.

@Jack1949

I set up my F12SE's using LFE in with Y cable's and do notice an increase in SQ and ease of adjusting bass level (get's louder/more tactile quicker). I still have a ways to go before I'm proficient with all the adjustments when switching between music and movies - especially Rumble Filter and Extension Filter. I'm also getting better with AVR sub levels, trim levels, sub gain and volume.

@atomicron

I'm having the same experience you're having. This is high quality bass.

I have no doubt this plays a role as well.. the ultra low frequencies are so controlled that it really seems miraculous and I wonder since that is the foundation of these subs if it just makes the whole sound more appealing.

The placement is different, and I moved my MLP back by 1 foot to accommodate a null zone the new placement caused.

Audyssey XT32 is the only current bass management there is on them. I have them boosted +6db over what Audyssey set them to. I’m on a concreate slab as well.

Here is before and after.

Why wait for an FV28 when the Cap 4000 exists now?

because it's not remotely the same thing?

my father built himself custom dual vented 18's that are in larger cabinets & fed far more power than the sp1-4000 amp that comes with the jtr cap 4000. however that doesn't directly translate into something i'd like to have though. rythmik subs are extremely tight & accurate and i've come to absolutely love the sound signature--but i just want more. there's really no reason rythmik couldn't make a dual vented 18 if they wanted to as they already have the driver (f18/fv18) and the fv25 is a freight-only option and the fv28 would follow suit. in my opinion they're missing out on a market of sick people like myself that would happily give them more money for such a thing.

the cap4000 sells. the fv28 would too.

dad's subs shown below next to sealed ultimax 15's for reference & a gorgeous pair of paradigm signature s8's. if i just wanted "more" output i would have went the diy route too.
