Guys, I recently calibrated my system with VE but I'm uncomfortable with my subwoofer settings so I'm wondering if there's something I've missed. My receiver is a Denon 3801 and my sub is an SVS 20-39PC. My front three channels all calibrated to 75db with -3 to -6 settings which seems normal compared to what I've read. The sub, however, had to be adjusted all the way down to -12( the lowest) AND I had to drop the amp level to about 60% of it's max gain to get down to 79db. From what I've read here, turning down the amp is a last resort tactic because you lose headroom. I'm really concerned because I don't like the bass that loud when I listen to music so everytime I play a CD I have to turn the amp down EVEN MORE and then turn it back up when I'm done. So is there some hidden switch in the 3801 that could be goofing up my settings or is there something more obvious that I'm missing? I'm stumped. Shawn.
