    Hi all

    I have recently hooked up my 3802 to my Kef 2005 package and ran the test tone and everything seems to be working well however how do I test the Subwoofer? is it possible?

    Thx

    The 3802 has a test tone for the SW channel as well. Assuming you have the sub connected directly to the Sub Pre-Out on the back of the amp the test tone will be audible.

    Thanks Jase

    So this should be auidable when the test tone is cycling through each of the outputs?

    Thx

    Yep. Make sure you have the volume set at a reasonable level so you can hear it properly. To balance all the levels properly the test tones should be played back at 00db on the volume display and then either balanced to 75db with a sound meter or done by ear (not the most ideal way!).

    Also make sure that the amp knows you have a sub in the speaker configurations etc.
