Every since I got this sub something has always sounded like its missing. It just doesnt sound right to me, occastionally It would surprise me in certian scenes of a movie but thats it. I dont think its that great of a subwoofer. What Im trying to figure out is if theres something im missing thats making me loose out on hearing great bass this sub should be playing. For example my sub. cable isnt of good qaulity, or my reciever could be to blame but what ever the case I want figure it out. Right now My set-up consists of: Kenwood Generic Reciever Polk 7200 set pb2 plus subwoofer Im thinking of buying the outlaw pre/pro special upgrading the speakers,(axioms or rockets) and getting a better sub cable. The first thing on my list of upgradeing is the receiver. I plan on getting it sometime this month. Hopefully that will do a major improvment on channel seperation and help the sub. If that doesnt work Ill order Better Cables from SVS thinking the wire is to blame. And last but not least upgradeing the speakers. Im not trying to bag on svs just want to figure out what im missing. I notice when I get farther away from the sub it sounds better. My room is an L shaped room with 4 oppenings. The sub is placed next to the couch next to the main entrance. Thats the best postion I found for the sub but I could be wrong.
