    I just got around to upgrading my system, and have been checking out various movies with it, but I've noticed one thing. Sometimes the sub's case will vibrate on assorted effects. Do I turn down the sub's volume, and if I do won't I lose it's usefulness? Or do I turn down the master volume? Help!

    This is the result of a poor subwoofer design. There is no cure, except to buy a better-engineered piece of equipment.[​IMG]

    At any rate, try adjusting both the subwoofers amp and the crossover knob to try to tame things a bit. It might help. Only turn-down the master volume if everything else is too loud.

    my old sony sub did that, it was built from plastic. you get what you pay for. i upgraded to an athena sub and it doesnt vibrate at all, but all my walls do.. hmm, kinda ironic i guess.
