I am having a problems with my Yamaha that I hope someone can shed some light on here. When I am not using it to watch movies I like to listen to music sometimes loud. I have some cerwin vega VS-120 for the fronts. With my old receiver I got very nice Bass out of them! Now with this yamaha I am not getting so lucky I have tried alot of different things to get this to work but have had no luck so far. I have a old DVD player that I am using for my MP3 disks I have that running into the CD inputs of the receiver. I have used 2ch stereo & Direct. I have also set bass out to Both,and front with no luck. It just will not let the down low bass out of the front channel. I have also tried setting the front to large/w no sub and still no luck? I have looked at the manual many times but can't find anything on this. I am starting to think maybe it just won't let the lows out to the fronts at all??? Anybody have any ideas that could help me out?? Thanks!
