Total Audio Newb, my first try into receivers/5.1
I purchased a Pioneer VSX 520 Receiver and a Sherwood 5.1 speaker setup from JBHI that was on special
The problem i have, is the Subwoofer only switches on when the volume is turned up quite high, 60-70% output seems to trigger it. There is a LED on the front of the Sub, RED means its off, Green means on ( an auto switching sub) ?
I would like the subwoofer to be always on if their is audio playing, even if the volume is low, and no matter what source the audio, whether it HTPC or the inbuilt Tuner
There are alot of settings on the AMP and some on the back of the sub which i dont totally understand
On the AMP i can do the following:
Change the Crossover, Default is 100db? is this correct?
I can change the distance of the sub from the listening position?
Change the channel level on the speakers and the subs
On the Sub, it has the following dials
I have the sub connected via the SUB Pre Out from the Receiver, into the L(mono) Input on the sub via a standard RCA Cable (10metres).
Can someone point me in the right direction on what all these settings should be set at so the sub is always on when there is audio?
