As I have posted in other threads over the past 3-4 months or so I've been slowly building up a new home theater system piece by piece. I've had the DSWpro660wi subwoofer for a few months and it seemed to work right with my old crappy samsung avr (though it was hooked up through the left/right front speaker channels) but since then I've upgraded to a Pioneer Elite Sc-63 and ditched the samsung.
I purchased a subwoofer cable and plugged it into the zone 1 sub out on the avr, made sure the LFE switch on the sub is switched to YES and plugged the subwoofer cable into that LFE input slot.
Now here is my issue, I don't know if the subwoofer is really doing anything if at all, because to get it where i think I can maybe hear it I have to turn it up to like 35. I'll have to check the manual again but i think that is almost as loud as it is supposed to go. It seems to me like i should be getting a lot more sound out of it.
Also with it being turned up so loud when it wakes up from being asleep it makes that thud when it wakes up which scares the crap out of you if you aren't expecting it.
I know there is nothing wrong with the subwoofer, I must be missing something in my wiring/config.
