It seems that since I've put my system together the volume has totally decreased in output. I know as I sit here, that it does make sense a little bit but here's what I'm running into:
I started with a Denon 3805 and RTi8's. I added the rears (RTi4) and Center (CSi5). I just bought my SPL meter, and have yet to calibrate but over the past few months, I have had to increasing turn up the volume.
I started with just the 8's and -10db was VERY LOUD. Now with the rest of the speakers on, I have to run my HT at -5db just to get it loud enough to hear clearly. Is there something wrong with my speakers? Or is it just with the added speakers to push, the overall volume has decreased?
I was worried at first that I had damaged the speakers, but really, -5 isn't that loud is it?
Is it that time already to consider separate amp for the mains? :) Or will calibrating it fix a lot of those problems?
