Just wanted to run this by everyone to make sure I'm not having an issue with my baby's.
I just went full 5.1 in my Den - using a Marantz 5006 receiver. I had originaly set up the system with my RTA12's as my fronts, a Monitor 5 as my Center, and no sub.
Last night I was watching "Wrath of the Titans" at pretty low volume, say under 60Db... and kept hearing the clicking/slapping noise.
I isolated the section that it was most obvious on (if you have the movie - its the section where Andromeda is talking to Festus, around 44:08 if I remember correctly).
I found that the two Left front drivers were actually bottoming out - tons of excursion... and causing a slapping noise.
I turned my sub on, and crossed my fronts over at 60Hz... problem went away.. So its like the super low frequencies used in movies are too much for the Polks since they dont have enough excursion or something.
ANyone else ntoice this? I dont have any issues with music and can rock them out quite loud.... I'm thinking its just due to the "movie" type digital bass they add for effects.. I also remember hearing the same sound during Transformers "Dark of the Moon"..
Anyone else seeing this happen? I'm assuming its a non-issue, but want to make sure!!
