I'm looking for some help/advice. I have the rm6000 series which have been fantastic speakers for my small home theater. I have always wired them via the preferred method of running the fronts through the sub. I recently needed to buy a new receiver and on a budget settled on the Yamaha HTR-5930. I set up the speakers exactly the same but no matter how I tried and tried to configure the receiver I could not get an acceptable blend between the sat's and the sub. Atleast nothing like it used to sound like with the old receiver. It sounded to me like I was losing a lot of the midrange and when I would adjust the low-pass filter on the back of the sub I couldnt percieve any change in sound. I then decided to try the sub output on the reciever (lfe?) and plug it straight into the sub (looks nicer). This solution seems better but still not as good as it used to be, the bass is better but the mid's are still lacking. I know the manual explicitly says to NOT connect the sub this way but I could find no other way. Does anyone have any advice on how I should set this up to get optimal sound? Was it just a bad choice in receiver? Is it the sub? Is there something I am missing in the receiver setup? Any advice would be helpful as I seem to find so much confliciting information on the web.
(Also, the on/off switch on the back of the sub seems to have three states (on/off/?) but I dont know what the difference between the on state and the middle state are - they seem the same?)
