    I just got my Denon 5800 up and put in my new JBL S412P's and my volume and Bass do not seem to get very loud?

    I put in all top of the line Monster Cable's and my Bass and volume over all don't seem to be very loud no matter the settings I tweak on the 5800. Granted I am not a guru but this should not be the hard part I would think.

    Any help would be very appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Jon Lee

    Question #1: have you calibrated your system with an SPL meter and a test disc (video essentials, Avia, etc...)?

    What material and listening mode are you using? Are we talking stereo? DD/DTS? Pro Logic?

    These may be stupid questions, but do you have a subwoofer as well? Are your speakers set to "Large" or "Small" in the receiver setup?

    In every mode except radio as I have not used it as such.

    It happens with both DVD's and CD's. In 5.1 Stereo, THX and Dolby.

    The speakers each have a 12" sub powered by its own 200watt supply. I have tried both Large and Small and not heard a real difference.

    I am using a Toshiba SD1200 for both audio and DVD as I have not yet started the search for a new one.

    Thanks.

    That sounds like a signal problem.... The JBLs you have do go loud! The 1200 Tosh dvd should not be a problem either. BTW... what connection do you use from the dvd to the receiver?

    Jon,

    Sounds like it could be a phase issue. Does it do it on everything?

    You should take some time to read the manuals. To me this sound like either a setting or connecting failure.

    As you have half aktive speakers as I could read bedween the lines, you should take a look if the Bass level at those power moduls are set at the right level too.

    It has the same problem on everything I have tried.

    I have read the manual's and not come up with anything that has helped. I have had friends come over and they can not find the issue either (they have taken the manuals home and read them and come back and played with it again).
