    I'm setting up my sub, and presently have both the receiver and sub set on reverse. I thought it sounded better. Is this a bad idea? I'm not sure of the phasing of my speakers, but I do have the + terminals hooked into the + terminals of the speakers (and vice-versa for the -). So I assume they are phased normal. Advice please?

    Josh,

    Not sure what you mean by “reverse” – I only use that in my car. [​IMG]

    There is some fairly intense theory on that little phase switch on your sub, but in the end, you are supposed to set it, for best sound output.

    If you get a test disc like Avia, it will have an accurate way to determine the proper phase setting on your sub, plus for setting up and calibrating the rest of the audio & video equipment in your system.
