Monolith 12 setup

I’ve been building my HT for a while now and just added dual Monolith 12’s. Found them for a great price and couldn’t resist after reading some reviews. I don’t know much about subs and the user manual doesn’t give you much to go by. What should initial settings be set to? Both ports open? After settings are in place should I let Audyssey take care of the rest? Just looking for a good starting point and some info on adjustments. I’m aware that I need to find optimal placement, get readings, etc. Just need some help getting started. Thanks

Guide to Subwoofer Calibration and Bass Preferences

You can try starting with everything set on the subs to their THX settings and all ports open.

I agree with Marc and suggest starting here.
Guide to Subwoofer Calibration and Bass Preferences
I have had the two monolith 12” subwoofers for about a year and thought they sounded pretty good. Then I found the guide above and now have increased overall SQ significantly.

Read through section I & II before running Audyssey calibration. Post calibration move on to section III & IV then onward.

Regards,
Bert
