    I was just wondering on my onkyo 797 I have 2 Sub levles i can adjust. One is the one that emits the pink noise which i have like at -7db. Then there is a Dolby LFE asjustment that can go 0db down to -12 i think. What is the difference and how should i set them up for best performance?

    the sub adjustment adjusts your overall sub level, (including redirected bass from all channels set to 'small') while the LFE adjustment adjusts ONLY the .1 LFE channel when listening to a DD or DTS track. You'll most likely want to leave your LFE setting at 0db's, and calibrate your system using test tones and the sub adjustment setting.
