    How much bass actually comes from the 0.1 LFE channel in most films ?

    Hi all, I have been thinking about how much LFE is actually used for impact and drama in film scenes. I watched 'mother' over the weekend (strange film !) but was aware how much movement I was getting from my 12" subs during the heavy bass added on some scenes. I play less than reference and...

    No LFE at all suddenly Yamaha RX-A3080

    Triple checked my settings and the front display shows two subs connected. I am getting zero out of either one running the test tones. If I disconnect the two sub coax from the back of the receiver I do get that loud hum out of each if I brush the center pin across the speaker jacks in back of...

    LFE settings and Harman Curves question

    Hi all, a question I think but am not sure I know the answer for : If you have chosen an Xdb lift in the lower frequencies to match the Harman curve, which is exactly what I have done for all channels, should the LFE channel, the 0.1, have that lift as well ? Heres's my graph of the current...

    LFE -10db and Xovers

    H all, Ive been thinking about what must happen in a AVR/processor when crossing over to the sub channel. as this channel is cut by 10db to allow headroom in the pre/processor, so an active sub is 10db up on for the same output voltage on the other channels, the processor must cut the signal...

    Question How many LFE subwoofer low level connections per AV amp?

    Hello all, I have a Denon AVR-X3600, which has two subwoofer outputs both with level control. I have read that it is fine to connect a Y splitter to each of these, so that I can connect 4 subwoofers. But I thought I should ask Denon first as I do not want to damage the AV amp. Here is their...

    Question Replacing old / dead sub - but connections are more complicated than I remember

    My 20+ year old Eltax sub has died (for the 2nd time this year, it's just not economically viable to fix it again at about £70 as I assume things are getting terminal). So it's time to replace it. This is for a 5m square lounge that will NOT be the main movie watching room as the cellar is...

    Question SkyQ - Lack of LFE

    Hi all and apologies if I'm going over old ground here. I have become increasingly disappointed with the lack of bass whilst watching 5.1 content through SkyQ. Dipping in and out of Superman Returns & Batman vs Superman last night really confirmed the fact to me that LFE output is woeful. Now...

    Question 5.5 system --> How to redirect the LFE channel

    Hi everyone, I have 5 full range active speakers (25Hz to 25kHz) and I'm planning to use them for a new home theater. As the speakers are able to handle the LFE, I'm looking for a pre-amp which would allow me to redirect the suboofer LFE channel to each speaker so they can play the entire...

    BK Monolith problem

    I have a BK Monolith Plus and something strange is happening. I use it in 5.2 setup and always felt it sounded odd. I have it level matched with the other sub, but as the frequency contour is set to max LFE I thought everything is set perfectly. But it sounds nowhere near as deep as my much...

    Question Speakers Small with Crossover vs Speakers Large with LFE+Main/Extra Bass/Double Bass

    We all know the coveted HT rule: Set your speakers as small/limited range with a 80-100Hz crossover, even if you have tower speakers, spare your amp and speakers the extra work, and let your sub take care of the lows. Here's my thing...what do you tell the person who's a "purist" and only runs...
