Hi. New to Forum but have been reading as much as I can about my new sub here.
My old sub was an Energy monster that seemed to be making a lot of rattling or distortion, so I decided to try a new sub (the RW-12D) to see if the noise went away.
For the most part, it sounds better, but sometimes I do hear some strange distortion, so I thought I would see if some sages on here had some suggestions to try.
The sub is placed next to my front right speaker, facing the main listening position. I've run the Audyssey setup on the Denon AVR a few times. The first time it set the sub level at -12 db, so I thought it ran out of attenuation room. I then reduced the volume setting on the sub to about -13 db and ran the setup again. This time, the setting went to -3 db. The LPF is set to off on the sub and the EQ is at Punch.
I would like to get a bit more bass from the system----used mostly as an HT to watch movies. I rarely--if ever--listen to music in that room. So, does anyone think my settings should be changed? Or the sub moved?
The room is rectangular and has 3 walls with the 4th side being a half wall open to the kitchen.
