    I was playing around with my sub today (Kenwood SW-35HT). It sounds good with music and movies, but I was experimenting with Jurassic Park 3, and the part when the T-Rex and the Spinosaurus were fighting almost scared the crap out of me. The sub started distorting all to hell. How can I tune it to sound keep sounding good with other movies like it's doing now, but without distorting like it did with JP3? BTW, I'm not too good with tuning stuff (had a hell of a time with my truck's system). Thanks for any tips.

    The best start would be to make sure it's optimally placed(corners near the key seating tend to work well)...and calibrated using a SPL meter.

    Depending on the size of the room, and the overall volume levels you like to use...a bass heavy DVD like JP3 may overwhelm the subwoofer regardless.
