    I have just purchased Definitive's Supercube 1 and am may be having problems with the way the speaker is set up. I have a denon 3803 as my receiver and I'm using the LFE input/output as the speaker connection (12 ft).

    Whenever I play music/movies I can hear a crackling sound from the speaker (kinda like when your tweeter is up too high). I don't believe my amp has enough power to blow the speaker but then again I'm a novice (what do I know)

    Here are the settings that I have on my subwoofer and speaker.

    Sub:
    Level = 50 (knob is straight vertical Up/down)
    High = knob turned all the way down
    Low = 80

    Receiver:
    Front Speakers = small
    Sub = Yes

    Any ideas?

    Antonio,

    If you just purchased this locally, I would take it back and test it at the store with your cable. That will resolve if there is a receiver problem or not. Also get them to try it with another cable just to make sure that's not the problem.

    If you mail ordered it, do the same thing at a friends house with their receiver.

    Good luck!

    It doesn't sound like the receiver is powering the sub, so there is no way the receiver is doing this via amplification.

    1) Try a different cable.
    2) Check your sub settings in your speaker calibration menu in the receiver, it may be too low or too high. (Have you calibrated?)
    3) Turn the LOW pass all the way UP, your receiver should be handling the x-over, not the sub, the way you have it set up.
