what should my subwoofer be set to?
That's a very broad question that depends greatly on your subwoofer, your other equipment, and your listening environment. Is there a particular setting you're interested in?
+3 to +6db over the mains, center and surrounds is my preference. need an SPL meter and a good calibration CD/DVD.
lmao@"on" sorry.couldnt resist.
How exactly would you measure the db level on a sub? Does the reciever send a test tone to the subwoofer like it does to the rest of the speakers? How can you send a signal to just the sub without the sending any sound to the speakers so that you could gauge the db level? Also what is considered a "calibration" cd and where could I get one? Is a calibration cd better than using a test tone fromt he receiver?
I currently have: (ultimate budget system)
Onkyo 6.1 TX-SR501 Receiver
JBL NSP1II speaker Package
Next week my Dayton 10" powered sub will be coming in. Does anyone know how I would properly set this up and what each "dial" on the back is for. I think it has a phase switch, crossover frquency control, and volume control. How should I set each dial using the receiver that I have.
Thanks Im trying to learn...
