AvForum people...as per above, it almost sounds like I have too much boomy base....I am not a big sub woofer connoisseur so I don’t really know what I am looking for but the T5i just doesn’t sound right to me, would a bigger sub sound more tight and less boomy...if that makes sense! ??

Probably setup/placement issue. Which receiver you have and did you run the setup again? If you have Audussey/YPAO post some pictures from the menu including speaker size, crossovers, distances, levels etc.

Thanks for the reply, I have a denon x1600h, I have rerun audussey and the results are below...unfortunately I can only place my sub where it is which is to the left of the the TV on the isolation pad...I can close the doors to the kitchen but they are usually open.

Hi Martin
If you cannot place the sub in another position an Antimode should tame the peaks and reduce the booms.
They sometimes come up on the classifieds for around £100.

Thanks...so you think I would be better keeping my current sub and getting an anti mode rather than looking at changing the sub given the position I have it in?

The settings look ok, but bump up the speaker crossovers for fronts, center and surrounds at least 80hz. They are too low now!

The gain knob is correct behind sub, check that phase switch is set to 0. There is Low Level Input and Low .1/LFE i assume you have connected to latter.

Basically your receiver has Audussey Mult EQ XT which should flatten some peaks (similar what Antimode does), but not as effectively. Bit suprised it sounds boomy. Anyway change those settings i mentioned.
