New subs seem anemic
I just got a pair of SVS PC4000 that I currently only use one at a time but have tried them both. I’m noticing that the strong subs don’t really blow me away and I fact I feel and hear the sonos sub I have a lot more at a similar listening level. I’m trying to diagnose to see if there is something not set up properly with the NaD 758 connections. I have the rca going from the nad sub pre out and into the PC4000 LFE input. I have the receivers crossovers at 80 for the three speakers attached (towers and center). I have the speakers set to small and sub turned on. The Subs volume is -10 which is pretty high. I have to play the receiver pretty loud to notice the bass (-25 or louder). The sub is set in standard mode. While I hear the bass it isn’t very loud unless I go into the tone controls in the NAD and put the bass on about 6DB or higher (up from 0). Is this right to raise this level or is this a improper boost and not recommended? Listening to BluOS tidal mostly but have also watched Netflix through Apple TV.
Anything I’m missing from receiver side?
Haven’t run Dirac yet but not sure that should affect amount of bass I’m feeling/hearing
Thanks in advance!
Anything I’m missing? I just feel I should hear more from a 2.5 grand ported sub...
