I just love my HSU hybrid 5.1 V15 setup with Onkyo AVR.
But...

I have this enormous mp3 library but most have no bottom end and just really sound terrible.
Even Flac files don't really have big bottom end sound.
Maybe I'm spoiled on DTS 5.1...

Question: what might be the means to best use the DSP modes for music? Or is the sound just rolled off at 90hz and that's all I got?

Thanks

In your AVR are all of the speakers set to small?
Bass mgmt settings of your crossovers?
What's the bitrates of your MP3s?
Make sure your not using any
"Source direct" settings which bypass bass mgmt.

Music doesn't usually go as low as movies because musical instruments cant do that. If you're into rap/pop/techno, etc. then maybe that goes lower. My system is revealing so poorly recorded albums sound bad..conversely well recorded albums sound amazing.

I'm guessing music might go as low as 30hz? Check your cross-over and sub settings for your music preset.
