"Have you compared the M80s in pure direct to the M80s set to small with the subs"
Since adjusting the subs I hadn't.
I went back and forth listening for the difference today.
The M80s have a nice amount of bass on their own. With the subs now set at the roughly the same volume they seem to disapear with the M80's.
I couldn't locate them before but it didn't sound right.
I'll leave them at 33% for a while.
Living in a fog these days, lost something of myself when I changed careers.
