Help a noob - subwoofers & NX6000D
I have a lot of new home theater equipment and I am struggling to troubleshoot what is wrong. I'm not hearing any output from my two new subs that I built - Dayton Audio 18" Ultimax with cabinets. I have a new Emotiva RMC-1 processor and a new Behringer NX6000D amp to drive the new subs. I contacted Emotiva and it appears I have the RMC-1 configured correctly (Sub-Left and Sub-Right set to dual-mono if I remember correctly, all speakers set to small with 80 Hz crossover points). The Behringer powers-up fine, but I'm not seeing any lights on the signal, limit, & protect LEDs, nor hearing a peep from the subs. When I send test signals from the RMC-1, I hear all other speaker channels but nothing from the subs. I'm pretty sure I assembled the subs correctly (used a 4-pole Neutrik NL4MPR Speakon Connector, wiring from +1 & -1 terminal to the + & - terminals on the sub, with jumper wire running from + to - in series to run sub in 4 ohm configuration). I cannot test with any of my old equipment since I have all new connectors of different types with the new gear (XLR interconnects between RMC-1 output and NX6000D input, Speakon speaker cable between NX6000D and subs). At this point, I am wondering if I am missing something with the Behringer configuration, particularly since the manual is pretty lean on help. Does anyone have any suggestions that I might try? I really hope it is something stupid I am overlooking, but at this point I am really scratching my head. This is my first foray into more advanced AV gear (separate processor and amp for speakers, passive subs and a dedicated amp for LFE).
Thanks in advance for any ideas. If someone has a NX6000D and can share at least the initial configuration steps (for a complete noob), that might be a starting point.
