    Hello,

    I want to FEEL not HEAR my SUB. How does one acheive this?.

    SETUP:

    AVC-A1SR
    REL Quake

    My levels are fine, but the BASS just feels WRONG.

    How do you get the FEELING without the distortion?.

    Respect,

    Mass
    :(

    Get a better sub. That maybe a bit harsh but the Quake isn´t that highly regarded I´m afraid. More boom than bass.

    If you are stuck with it then the best tip I can give is try various positions in the room. Place the sub at your listening position and wander round the room listening to the sub at various points. Wherever its sounds best, place it there.

    Its also worth trying different speaker setups (small/large etc) but that depends on what speakers you are running with it (satellites, floorstanders etc).

    My speaker setup:

    FL,FR = B&W CDM7SE (floor standing)
    Centre = Kef200C
    Rears: Same as my fronts.

    Speakers are set to small, and LFE set to FIXED THX.

    I dont want to get rid of my sub, as the wife hasn't even noticed that I brought one due to its size (well hidden behind my rack hehehehe).

    :D

    Outstanding Mass!!!

    Getting one past the missus can be a hell of a task can't it?!

    I'm afraid I have to agree with Jase re: the Quake - v domestically appealing, but it doesn't really have enough oomph. Have a go at setting your mains (and rears too in your case) to large or setting bass to both sub and mains.

    This might relieve the Quake of having to handle too much bass in the first instance, or may bolster it's output in the second.

    Happy listening
