Controlling the Bass Levels on a Denon AVR-684

My TV is set up with the Denon AVR-684 as the sound system. I did not set it up myself. The bass is so strong it gives me a headache. Is there a way to reduce the bass overall? (Note: I don't have a remote control for the system anymore)

    Thank you very much, marsrover; I really appreciate your going to the problem of looking up the manual and responding!



    I was able to find the instructions and dialed it down - way down to -12 dB, the max. Strangely, it didn't seem to actually reduce the bass, but you're right, it should have. Perhaps the person who set it up did it in such a way that it overrides the front controls? I don't know.



    However, it did give me an idea for an immediate solution: disconnect the subwoofer! I'll keep looking through the manual to see if there's a reason why the tone control (wish they'd just call it Bass/Treble!) didn't work. Thank you very much again,

    You're right; it's smack dab in the corner, since my TV is angled acoss the corner. I'll give that a try - thanks again!

I have Denon AVR-2310...but lost operating manual ! In audio set up, more specifically speaker configuration, a choice is given between " FTE", and "FTE +main". What is the...


The manual... http://www.retrevo.com/support/Denon-AVR-2310CI-Receivers-manual/id/23452bh638/t/2/

I'm pretty sure you mean "LFE + Main".

You need to identify the speakers to the receiver as Large or Small regarding their bass-handling capacity more than their actual size.

"LFE" removes the possibly overloading bass in a given speaker channel containing 'small' speakers and sends it to the subwoofer.

"LFE + Main" is sort of explained on page 29 "Bass Setting". The intent of LFE+Main is to task your subwoofer with the bass that ALSO exists on all other speaker channels regardless of their ability to handle it all by themselves. As you can imagine, this might make the subwoofer respond to sonic events that are actually supposed to be directional from, say, the rear channel(s). In that case the event might seem to come from wherever the sub is located instead of the intended direction; or at the very least it might seem to come from both places which is probably not what the sound engineers intended when they recorded the piece.

Having full-range speakers 360-degrees around PLUS a subwoofer, I don't subscribe to the 'bass-is-non-directional' school of thought. If you've ever felt the concussion from and subconsciously glanced toward one of the speakers after, say, a huge explosion, the system is working.

Subwoofer works in test mode on denon avr 790. but not any other time?


I had the same problem. The system from the factory does not ship confgured for continuous subwoofer output. To fix this, do the following:

1. Enter the system menu.
2. Go to "Speaker Setup"
3. Select "Bass Setting"
4. Change the setting from "LFE" to "LFE+Main"

That should do it... You can also see this information in the "Bass Settings" section of the product manual on page 26.

I need to turn up the bass on my denon amp


A few ways to get more bass here you go John.

If you have a sub check your level and crossover settings on sub and on amp, on the sub half volume and 90-120 crossover should be kicking,

Run a speaker level test on your denon and turn up sub channel.

if you want more bass in your speakers press the tone button on the front panal. for some i believe its in the menu system under parameter

Depending on what the source is you can turn up the bass on the source. aka ipod, some dvd players and what have you.

Is denon 1356 with active bass. and i want to know the difference between active bass and passive bass.


Hi....

A passive bass is a box with a sub-woofer in it.
An active bass is a box like that with an amplifier built in.

Hope that helps.
