Question about Pioneer VSX-9110TXV-K
This receiver has whats called MCACC that automatically sets up your surround sound. Its a 7.1 system but right now i have two 12" tower speakers (Left and Right) a center speaker and a subwoofer. I run the auto setup and the receiver recognizes the subwoofer (yamaha 8"). it feeds a bunch of different frequencies to it and sets it at -7.0 DB. When the setup is done and i change it to surround sound, the sub doesn't playback at all. When i manually go in and change the db's it will put test notes through the subwoofer and i can tell how loud it will be. but when i save the settings and exit out of the EQ edit screen, it doesnt play at all. can anyone help? thank you!!

Automatically setting up for surround
sound (Auto MCACC)
The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area, taking into account
ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you have set
up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a series of test tones
to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.
Make sure you do this before moving on to Playing a source on page 11.
• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.
• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any existing settings for the MCACC preset you select.
• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup, the headphones should be disconnected and the iPod
USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio function should not be selected as an input source.
1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.
2 Connect the microphone to the MCACC SETUP MIC
jack on the front panel.
Place the microphone so that it's about ear level at your normal listening position (use a tripod if possible). Make
sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and the microphone.
The Auto MCACC display appears once the microphone is connected.1
1 • You can't use the System Setup menu in either the main or sub zone when the iPod USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio input source is selected. When you set ZONE 2 to ON (page 61), you can't use the System Setup menu.
• If you cancel the Auto MCACC Setup, or leave an error message
It's all in the manual.
