I ran it with both ports open and bumped the gain on the AVR +3 db. It sounded good. A very experienced friend came in and started walking the room, clapping, reciting a sentence ad nauseam looking for reflection points. He pointed those out where I need acoustic treatment. Then we fired everything up and he heard the sub rip. Immediately he had me plug the 3" port, and I set it back to EQ1. Then we ignored Audyssey, put the gain back to 0 db on the sub in the AVR. Then he had me increase volume on the back of the sub. It now rips, and I mean rips. It should work well for you. The tuning options make it an incredible value. Best of luck.
Interesting. This is *not* how I or many others would have set it up. But if you like the results, I guess that what matters in the end.
