Guys, I did everthing right according to connections per the subwoofer instructions from SVS. I ran AccuEQ just like the manual says in Onkyo.
Speaker settings are like this: 5.1>subwoofer="yes">LFE="on">bi-amp is non selectable>height is non selectable>exist.
Crossover>have alll selectable speakers set at 80 (per svs said to try)>exist
back to menu, select 'misc'>intial set up> do all on screen questions, started with AccuEQ.
Subwoofer cable is a Blue Rigger RCA gold plated, brand new, could it be bad, possibly.
When AccuEQ runs, if I remember right, it did show a message regarding subwoofer being connected, thought to myself, it is hooked up you dumb machine....lol
Then it runs through checking the all speakers with its static noise, gets to the subwoofer and it has a very very low low buzz, the it goes into level calibration set up which I believe it is.
Goes through all the speaker playing different level of tones, it didn't cycle to the subwoofer, is that normal? Gets all done, says unhook mic.
So, standing next to subwoofer, I select my CD to play music, very little bass can be heard, you put hand on the subwoofer you can feel it, stand back about 6 ft, sounds like you got no bass hardly.
I tried changing the setting to 2.1 and selected no subwoofer, that puts the crossover to the fronts at full range, my fronts are very capable of playing bass, guess what??? NO bass what so ever.
As far a replacement, not sure what I want to replace it with, I don't want another dud, this shakes my confidence in Onkyo, so this whole ordeal has ruined all expecatations. My first initital thought was, is this all the bass this things puts out for $600??? which was next to none.
I also did a firmware update as well, that did sqat.
I bought it from one call, they have 60 day return, I bought this thing Apr 24th.
If you want pictures of my settings let me know your email address
