So excited to have my first theater room!! Just joined and can't wait to gain more knowledge and have a room that makes me not even want to go to the cinema!
Ok here is what I have
I have included picture so you can see my set up. Excuse the mess (laundry day). I know the atmos speakers are not on the ceiling yet. I upgraded avr's just a month or so ago. Going to get proper ceiling speakers soon. Went from 7.1 to 5.1.2 and just haven't moved speakers yet(or got new ones) to replace the quentets.
Onkyo txnr757 lfe set to 80hz
5.1.2 atmos setup
Klipsch r26f front L & R set to full ban
Klipsch quentet v for center souround rears and for atmos ceiling. All set to 120hz
Klipsch r10sw set to lfe gets signal from rocket fish wireless sub kit
2 aura bass shakers with 100w Dayton amp
Splitter on the rocketfish to send signal to Dayton amp
I have adjusted and moved stuff till I'm blue in the face. I have ran setup with the mic numinous times. All distances seem to be pretty close. Sub is behind me in corner faced with port firing into wall and cone faced towards the screen. Phase set to 0*. Gain knob is half way up with avr sub level set to 0.
Main problem is if I put a movie in on direct dsp on the onkyo it starts to sound like it should like the theater. Low bass booms sometimes to much it's like some scenes sound great then to little or to much. So I contacted onkyo and was told to not use direct mode or dsp as it won't use any settings don't with the mic!?!?!??!?! So then I started setting it to either atmos,dtsx etc. when I do this it sounds like **** and I get vocals though the sub. All the sub bass booms are gone all together. Sounds like I don't even have a sub. It sounds like to me that way to much sound that shouldn't be coming out of the sub is. I am using a rocket fish wireless sub kit to send the signal. Have already taken it back and exchange it and it's still the same. I also am splitting the rca from the wireless sub kit to a splitter to power the amp on my buttkickers. To try and take that out of the equation I have unhooked to splitter and ran the sub signal cable into the sub directly. Sounds exactly the same. I feel like I'm against a wall. Doesn't matter what I do I can't get it to sound like it should with how much I have spent. Almost sounds like to me that the Lfe in the amp isn't doing its job. I know it's not the best stuff to get but should sound better than my lg sound bar and sub in my living room.
I'm looking to extend the room since I have a projector. When that happens I will be able to move to sub to the front of the room. Till then it has to be where it's at.
Thanks for any help
