    I just purchased this subwoofer and am trying to set it up. I have a question for anyone that has the DD series sub. On step 8 on "Onscreen programming and setup" in the manual it asks you to raise the volume of your reciever until the DD test sweep can be heard from your systems speakers. What test sweep are they talking about? It it that static test tone in the reciever that travels from one speaker to the next? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I believe they are meaning that test sweep DD-series sub generates. IIRC it's from 10Hz to 200Hz. You can use the microphone which came with the sub to measure it's FR and then using those parametric filters getting it flat (or close to flat).

    That recievers static tone is used to calibrate your main/center/surround channels.

    I haven't done it myself, I only saw and heard it when my friend was measuring his DD-18. IIRC the test sweep is started from the remote. I'm sure it reads in the manual.

    I suggest you post your problem here.
