    Hi guys,

    I have a yamaha rxv-1400 receiver. Someone suggested to me that I should set my LFE level to -5. From the manual, my choices are from -20 to 0(db). What is this value for? What does it mean when you set it to lower number, say -15?

    Thanks.

    The volume on my JVC doesn't work with - numbers. But, my friend's Denon gets louder (-15 is a LOT louder than -5).
    Setting the levels, is adjusting the volume of individual speakers.

    i think the idea with using the negative LFE value is to reduce the LFE output signal so as to use more of the sub's amp and less of a potentially "dirty" input signal

    Ok guys. Those were nice explanations.

    My receiver has a YPAO which automatically calibrates the volume or settings for my speakers. Do I still need the radio shack spl? The person in Tweeter just told me that if you already have YPAO, there is no more need to buy the RS spl. What's your score on this?

    Thanks.
