ok so i read the instructions and set up the volume and hz but it said nothing about the "phase" not even sure i know what that is..


Anyway...


my setup is a Yamaha rx-671 with Boston Acoustic in wall and ceiling 5 channel speakers, the PA 150 rounds it out. I ran the YPAO on the reciever and i can say i am lessed than impressed, i need more bass or response...


PLEASE HELP!!

YPAO does nothing for the bass except set the distance and gain. If you need more bass, do one or more of the following...


1) Make sure all speakers are set to small.

2) Set the crossovers to 80 Hz or highr.

3) Increase the subwoofer DB gain.

4) Turn up the volume on the subwoofer.

Set the crossover on the sub as high as it goes or bypass it. Then in your AVR set the crossover to 80hz maybe even 100hz, and make sure the LPF of LFE is 120hz.


Also where do you have your sub placed? Where do you sit? How big is your room?

What level is set on the subwoofer level on the receiver?

-10 is very low.


is the YPAO on the 671 mad at you?



Crank it to "0" and see how it blows air and adjust to your taste.



* Also on the back on the sub amp put it right at about 11 o'clock and adjust to your taste.


Keep us updated?


Enjoy.

i will try that but the sub has 3 knobs on it, volume, phase and crossover


So you want the crossover at 11 o clock?

Turn the crossover all the way to the right. Leave the phase alone. Set the volume(gain) to about 11:00 for starters.

Placement is everything (well almost). Do the sub crawl test. Also if you are sitting in the middle of the room you are sitting in a huge null spot.


The PA-150 has tons of output in the 40-80hz range, Something seems off.

Agreed.


And adjust the gain (volume) on the amp so that YPAO determines a channel level much closer to 0db. That better optimizes the amp sensitivity for the output on the receiver. Then bump up the channel level a few db if the bass isn't enough.
