- Real Name
I recently purchased and set up a new Home theater system. I used an ONKYO receiver and Onkyo 6.1 surround. Everything sounds great, but it seems to lack that "bass feel". My main concern is music. On my wimpy $50 computer 2.1 speakers the Bass thumps to where you can feel it. Is there something i am missing in my home theater setup. The subwoofer is nearly as big as a coffee table. Maybe theater surround isn't meant to deliver the bass in music like car stereos and stand alone speakers do.I have tried many different listening modes to no avail. This is not to say the bass isn't there, it surely is, but the big feel of bass is missing. I am using a Squeeze Box to deliver music to my system and it is hooked up with Optical cable.
