Is my equipment setup and working correctly?
Hello, I have a Denon Avr-s700w and a Pyle PTA3000.
It's for a sound system in a garage and I'm not sure it's set up correctly as this Denon is a nightmare to configure and extremely overly complicated. (you need an HDMI monitor, the subwoofer output is disabled unless speaker configuration size is set to "small", the setting stereo is the default which disables 5 of the 7 outputs and has to be changed to stereo-multi, etc etc)
Looking at the specs of each piece of equipment, what type of sub output would you expect? I understand this is very subjective without being able to physically be there, but the rack amp is barely driving a single 12" subwoofer. This is my first time trying to set up an audio system outside of a vehicle, so I believe the issue is with me and not the equipment. The lows sound no different than my factory audio system in one my cars and I would expect with a (rated) 3000w amp, I'd have to back the gain off of the Pyle and not have it cranked up? It is bridged and set to a bridged mode. Even if the RMS was 1/3 of the rated value, I would expect it to overdrive a single 12 into implosion?
Do my expectations seem reasonable? The room is about 14000 cubic feet, part block and part wood.
(I tried to post links to the specs but cannot since I don't have enough posts. If a moderator could fix that I'd appreciate it)
