Happy New Year HTF! In the spirit on "new beginnings" I'm going to try to articulate a problem with my HT that's bothered me all year. I know with your help, I can start 2002 with this problem resolved. Bear with me as I explain... The Equipment Yamaha DSP-A3090 integrated amp Monster Cable M351 subwoofer cable DefTech PF15TL+ subwoofer Avia Guide to Home Theater DVD The Connection I've connected one end of the sub cable to the line-level output on the back of the 3090 labeled "MONO SUBWOOFER". The other end is connected to the sub's "LFE In" input. The Problem The Yamaha 3090 has a feature/setting called "LFE Level" that is used to adjust the output level at the LFE channel. I have been assuming this is the setting I should access to calibrate my sub using Avia. The feature allows for a 20 Db adjustment range (-20 DB to 0 Db). While playing subwoofer test tones in Avia, I've tried to adjust this setting to match my sub to the rest of my speakers, but no matter what setting I choose, there is no difference. I can choose -20 Db, -10 Db, 0 Db, or anything in between, and the sub's level does not change one bit. In order to change the sub level, I have to go to the powered sub's volume control on the back of the sub and change it there. As a result of this problem, I have resigned myself to leaving the "LFE Level" at 0 Db, and adjusting the LFE level using the sub's amp level control. I'd much prefer, of course, to calibrate using the 3090's sub level control if possible. The Question How do I go about adjusting subwoofer level on the 3090? Do I have everything connected correctly? I have no idea why this won't work for me. I don't know if it's the connection, if this setting on my 3090 is defective, etc. I know of no other setting on the 3090 that allows the user to adjust the subwoofer level. Help! And, thanks in advance for reading this and for assisting.
