This may seem like a stupid question, but I am no reciever expert. I don't have any set up discs, I just go by the instructions. Well I had a Sony reciever, it had a problem, pretty much the bass picked up everything, not just explosions, but even voices would rattle the woofer. There was also a constant humming from the woofer, even in silence. Well I upgraded to a Kenwood. The humming is gone, but it still picks up everything, the bass is good, but should a door slamming sound like an explosion, and I don't think it is the volume, because by the time I have it low enough not to pick it up, the rest of the bass is too low. By the way, my woofer is an Aiawa. The simple thing I want to know is, on a movie, does your woofer rattle when someone speaks in a low voice, I was watching West Side Story, and the bass is thumping with every word the characters say.
