Hi All !
Thx for the replies / suggestions. Before I did audyssey as pr
. manual - the pre subwoofer sound check was in the green zone - like 75-77 db. Read somewhere that there is a bug in the way this works - so you need to have it like 81-82 db for the subwoofer to be calibrated correctly ?
I did another try - subwoofer gain dial at 9-10 (think it's more like 10) - and now I'm in the red zone around 81 db. Final results now say subwoofer = - 9.5 db so I now got something to play with. Did raise subwoofer trim 6 db.
First impressions - music - sounds great - punchy and not boomy. Unable to get DEQ to work - sounds bad - no matter what I choose -15 db, -10 db.... just too boomy - so off with DEQ.
Movies - tried same movie - still netflix: monsters vs aliens - same scene - much much better - but maybe I'm a bassmaniac / insane / ears not ok (according to wife) - but I still like to raise it 3-6 db to get that "in your face" feeling - but only on movies and not music.
No matter music or movies - I'm still amazed how detailed this V1800 can play. I'm now ready for a demo for my brother in law - as he is a sealed guy - and true believer of the myths with ported vs sealed + the higher inch woofer the boomier it gets.
Also did use alot of time to get this to work with a 60 hz crossover as this was the case with my pb-13 ultra - but here - best crossover is 80 hz. When I try 60 hz - it's just too weak.
Looking forward to have the house by myself as I need to demo some of the bass monster movies... unlucky me - I got a wife that hates the sound of deep bass
Again - thank you guys !
Oh also thanks to you Tom for the link to a new Denon manual - my manual was 338 pages long - but they have made a new one - this one is like 378 pages - don't know what has changed but will try to compare.
Great thread by the way - check this every day - like the news pages !
