I made a similar post to this one in SPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFERS several days ago, however since I think the root of my problem is my receiver and not my sub (not to mention not receiving any replies in the aforementioned post), I will ask the same question here. I'm having a problem with setting the LFE level on my 5560 receiver. All of my mains are set to "SMALL" and have been calibrated at 75dB. My sub is a Velodyne VX-10 connected to the 5560's subwoofer pre-out via an rca Y-splitter. Its level has been calibrated at 75dB and it sounds great. I have its variable crossover maxed out at 200 Hz and its gain is set at approx. 20% (I've read that Velodyne subs typically operate best in the 15%-50% range). This results in a receiver "SWFR" level of -10dB. My problem is that when performing a 6 channel low frequency test in Avia the LFE portion drops by about 6dB compared to the mains. This is with the LFE level at its maximum level setting in the 5560. What's the deal?? Is the problem in the 5560's bass management circuitry? Or, am I just doing something wrong? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
