Remember that when using an spl meter to measure LF to set to slow response and c-weighting. Also, most will be less sensitive in the lower ranges. I set my LFE/sub channel to around -2db on the meter relative to the other channels.
Don't forget that after you crank up the sub's gain control you'll need to adjust down accordingly on other digital inputs you may be running through the sub, else you'll bring down the house.
Thanks for the help. Bottom line is my Adcom is a joke! I can't wait to make a decision on a replacement pro/pro. The nice thing about an Anthem AVM for example, it has a flexible Analog DSP. You can adjust speaker level, full bass management and it can be customized to the input (in this case, 6 channel analog) while your other input setting remain untouched. The more I think about it, I may go back to an Anthem!
