I recently got a velodyne CHT-10 as my first subwoofer purchase. This is being added on to my very basic dolby pro-logic system(which I soon hope to upgrade). There is very little bass management on my receiver, actually there is probably no bass management on my reciever. The way I have it hooked up is that the sub uses its internal frequency filter (which I usually set between 60-80 depending) and all the other speakers still reproduce the full range. This seems to be working very well for movies. I am really happy with this. Here is my question, it has to do with music. When I listen to music at about 0-50% volume then using the sub definitly enhances the music but from about 50-100% the sub doesnt really add anything cause no matter how loud I set the sub I can't really hear it above everything else from the speakers. Is this because I have the speakers playing the full range. When listening to 2-channel music would most ppl set the crossover at around 80 or something and then let the sub alone play those frequencies. Just wondering cause Im a pretty young guy and like bass heavy music. Kinda disappoined that the sub doesnt pound out the bass when I push the volume up to a party level. karl ps - am i just expecting too much from the cht-10?
