Found Twister on TV though standard station, not a movie channel or streaming. Had sub about 12 ft away directly in front of listen area, couldn't hear it, center is overpowering it. moved it to behind my recliner, could hear it alittle better but not loud and could also feel vibrate from low frequency.
Suppose this the best its gonna get as far as how loud the sub is, its soft, not loud. To me I hear the center channel speaker more than anything.
So, holding off on sending the receiver back, I'll give it another week or so.
Update: Things are slowly getting better, with the help of email support for SVS. Yet to contact Onkyo, but its looks more like I won't have to unless I figure this one last bug out.
SVS suggested that I keep the speaker level calib. in the reciever at +3.0. then just tune wit the sub gain (volume to my prefernce) also said I can adjust eq settings in receiver to whatever I want.
Set all crossovers at 80 on all speakers
He said may have to turn receiver volume up quite a bit to get a desired result of sub performance.
Heeded all the advice.
Flipping thru channels on cable, I stumble across Marvels The Avengers on FX, never seen the movie, so I thought watch it and tune my settings.
Like I mentioned before, I had moved the sub to behind my recliner, its about 2 ft behind it.
When the scene comes to the heros in battle with the villians, I got quite a surprise from the sub, the thump, explosion were almost life like and the vibration from the sub was coming THROUGH
the recliner! I now also have what you guys would call bass shaker in the seat, volume was at about -13.0
I had to turn the center level speaker down to all the way it would go -12, as it was way to over powering, still is a tad.
So, There's lots of tweaking yet to do, I'm the only in this household, so where the speakers are at this point is fine, but I'll need to have two subs if I invite people over to watch, as I sat on the couch which is off the side, you don't feel the same effects when sitting in the recliner.
So in a nutshell, I don't know what the trick was to get this thing going, but I do know I had to run AccuEq a few times for whatever reason.
Now for the bug, To get Onkyo' OSD to come on TV, I have to manual switch the TV to the HDMI port its hooked up to, so its annoying I have to do that to make adjustments. I'm thinking along
the lines that the TV doesn't have that feature that allows you to do that. Have a samsung 40" LCD. Thats the next thing I need to work on.
