Speaker set up and adjustment

Does anyone know if you can select and adjust the sound of the subwoofer without the remote control? If so, how?? My sub is turned off internally and I do not have the remote.

Thanks!

I'm about to hook up my KLH to an Onkyo Receiver with Audyssey sound features. 2 questions: it asks me to set my sub to 75 DB. Since my volume dial goes 0-10, which number maps to 75 DB? Also, what...


I think it wants you to raise the volume high enough on the sub so IT can hear at least 75dB. It can always adjust the sub downward if necessary. Max it out at the sub and let Audyssey deal with the adjustment.

Your crossover frequency selection would be a piont below which you want the sub to activate. It depends on the bass capabilities of your other speakers. You want some overlap so there's no droop in the crossover region where your main speakers roll off.

My sub ksw10 do not work with avr589.sub is fine.av receiver works on all 5 channels.with the remote i am unable to adjust all the parameters.


http://usa.denon.com/DocumentMaster/US/AVR-589-OM-E_105A.pdf you'll need to access the receivers speaker Set-up menu. you can download the user manual here. my opinion is that your speaker setup in the menu is not correct. make sure that you have Subwoofer yes selected in the menu, also if you selected ( Large ) as your left and right Main speakers it will not allow you to select Subwoofer ( yes/no ). you must select ( Small ) and then select Subwoofer Yes. also you can connect all speakers and perform Auto setup and it will recognize the sub when a test tone is emitted.

Here is something you can try.

On your source check the output level for your sub.
Try setting up at a higher level, if at 1 set it for 2 or 3
Then adjust the volume control on the sub down to mach the speaker volume level.

How to switch on Sub?


surround and subwoofer may not work if there is an additional graphic equaliser operating.
1. check in your receiver speaker setting ensure your speaker setup doesn not have subwoofer set to NONE. this will block any signal to your subwoofer socket.
2 when you select your surround sound setting setup, ensure you select the speaker mode you want, if there is a multicontrol knob, cycle through the choices
select subwoofer mode and set it to yes.
if you have set-up small speakers S in your speaker settings then it could be that subwoofer is set to yes automatically if you have large speakers L, subwoofer has to be set additionally in the subwoofer setting.
3 test subwoofer on alternative device to test it is working ok
consult manual on enjoying surround sound and adjusting the speaker settings.

Sub seems to not get louder with volume increase. It seems to be overpowering at low volume or boomy then as you increase volume the front main speakers seem to take over.


Try adjusting the frequency cut off of the sub and also play with the gain control on the sub. Turn your system up to where your front speakers are sounding as you like. Then try adjusting the sub to match the fronts so you have a good balance and blend.

There is no "perfect" setting that can be placed in a manual. It's all done by ear. Your settings will vary depending on the vehicle you are in, the type of enclosure you have, the type of music you listen too, how much voltage your deck put's out. There are many variables, but I can try to give you a basic guide.

First of all you need to know your enclosure. If you have a ported enclosure tuned in the mid to low 30's you may want to set the low pass to around 70-80 hz with your sub sonic set at 30 hz. this will give you the higher bass frequency you need for the loud bass you want, and protect the sub from going too far below the tuned frequency of the enclosure, and losing it's composure.

As far as the gain, and bass boost are concerned, you just have to adjust them by ear. First adjust the radio volume to normal listening levels, by that I mean as loud as it can go without the speakers in the car sounding like ****. Now you adjust the gain first. slow turn the gain control, carefuly watching and listening to the sub.. Adjust the gain to the point of the woofer getting a lil sloppy then back it down a bit until the sound is clean again. Now do the same with the bass boost. if there is a bass boost frequency adjustment, set that as close to the tuned frequency of the box as you can.

If you are in a sealed box the adjustments are a bit easier, and are all about taste. Adjust the radio as described before, and put on your favorite song. Next start udjust thing lowpass frequency to taste, not too high tho, try not us higher than 100 hz in your sub's for better sound. Sub sonic is not quite as important in a sealed box, as there is much less danger of the sub losing control.

Well good luck, and hope this helps!

My subwoofer on my philips 5.1 speaker system is constantly generating lots of bass noise even on mute.


I assume you are using XP. Try these steps.
1. Open 'Sound and Audio devices' in Control Panel.
2. Select 'Advanced...' button near bottom. b2053f1.jpg

3. Select 5.1 system 972ed04.jpg

4. Start playing a sound.
5. Set the volume control of the subwoofer to the middle position.
6. Open volume control and adjust Master volume to a comfortable level (i.e. until there is no hum).

Also make sure you haven't muted any sound device except microphone. I think your problem is you have set it to the maximum level. So decrease it.
7. Mute the sound and check.
Good luck! Let us know the result.

HTS 6500/37 sub woofer


the reciever should have a "subwoofer level" setting, or a "bass level control" If you cannot find this then try to place the "sub-woofer" away from walls and elevate it from the floor. This will reduce it's loudness/ intensity at annoying frequencies...

Good Luck

Subwoofer volume and sound


i had the same problem when i tried to adjust speaker output levels, distance and equalizer manually without using audessy setup..so i reset everything to factory setting (0s)..and then ran 
audessy setup..reduce volume on your subwoofer to slightly above minimum(behind the subwoofer) before running the setup..once audessy setup is completed successfully..i started changing setup
manually..changed speaker config for front speaker to small (it is set as large by audessy setup), this should automatically adjust center and other speaker configuration (if not make sure to set them to small as well), then set the cross over frequency to 120..increase the volume on your subwoofer and now you should hear it fire..if this does not help..try playing some rock music with all channel streo mode..if your subwoofer does not fire even for this..then take the system back for exchange..

Subwoofer VERY weak


According to the KLH manual for the 9906 "6 pack" with the BassBite sub... it says "if your sub is connected via the speaker - level terminals, your reciever must be set for "NO" subwoofer - even though you are using one. VErify proper polarity on your speaker connection wires. (red or gold to +, black or silver to -). Depending on how you have your woofer connected to the reciever, if connected to a reciever without a subwoofer out then set your reciever for LARGE speakers and turn the subwoofer setting "OFF". Failure to do so will result in little to no bass. If you do have a subwoofer out from your reciever adjust your speaker size setting to small or large speakers as appropriate. Set the recievers sub output to ON. Connecting small speakers to a reciever set for LArge speakers can result in damage to small speakers.

Hope this helps.
