I have not had a chance to listen to my sub much with HT yet, been very busy.


Too busy comparing the sound of an exploding RPG to that of a hand grenade on COD 4? hmmm, which one has more bass??

I'd go with banana plugs then.

Mas, bare wire is fine(even in the close quarters of the receiver terminals)unless you're thinking of frequently changing connections and want the convenience of banana plugs.

Bayne, as T discovered when the special stereo setting for the sub on his 3808 was changed from "no" to "yes", it's always possible to use the sub with 2-channel material. If the mains are set "small" and the sub "yes" of course, it gets bass below the selected crossover when set "LFE" only. The "+Main" setting isn't necessary or generally advisable.

Why did I read that as "bare wife is fine"?

Don't answer that.

Does anyone know why the 3808 set my ep 500 to -12 db with the auto set up?

All other channels are in the 0 to +3 range

The Audessey is a funny thing, but useful. The settings it gave me don't make sense either, but they sound wonderful. After I ran it, I used an SPL meter and set everything manually. It didn't sound nearly as good as what the Audessey gave me. Maybe it's best not to try and figure the thing out and just enjoy the music if it works for you?

I leave it at -12 or -11 for most music.

I adjust it anywhere from -6 to 0 for movies though....

I think I could benefit from experimenting with sub placement. right now the only other real option for placement is taken by a christmas tree.
