    I have a question concerning the Kenwood 6070 receiver and the Sony WM40 sub. I've been trying to properly setup the WM40 for a couple of weeks now. I've used a SPL meter along with the Sound & Vision setup disc/receiver test tones and I'm still not getting very good bass. I know that this isn't an SVS sub, but it doesn't sound as good as it did in the store. I've even added pollyfill, braces, and mod podge and it still doesn't sound that much better. I've read ALOT of posts reguarding setting up subs and there seems to be different ways to go about this. I currently have the sub in the front left corner of my room. I can't really put it anywhere else in the room except between my frnot left speaker and the entertainment center, if that would help. Can anyone please help me. Thanks.

    I assume you've tried fiddling with the crossover frequencies between mains and sub. Also the phase setting on the sub (if you have one). If so, then the room is the likely culprit.

    Max out the Bass Peak. That's only if you have a really wimpy sub that bottoms out on every hit.
