First time posting here, but long time Polk user. I am VERY frustrated with my HT system right now. I don't seem to be able to get much response from my PSW 650. Except at very low levels. Haven't measured it, but it only seems to hit when there are extreme explosions, etc. Even then the response is fairly minimal. I have the volume up to 8, so I figure I should be getting a little more reponse than that? I have had the sub checked out by Polk. They say it is fine. At this point I think it is the way I have it hooked up. It certainly wouldn't be the first time I have hooked up something incorrectly. As they say, one is always learning? Anyway, here is my current setup:
Polk Audio speakers: LS90 Fronts; CS1000P Center; FX1000 Surrounds and PSW 650 Subwoofer.
Components: Rotel RSP 985 Preamp/DSP; Rotel RB 991 2 channel amp and Rotel RB 993 3 channel amp.
I currently have the PSW 650 hooked up to my Preamp/DSP using ONLY the LFE/Subwoofer In. I am actaully using a 2 in 1 cable that goes out from my Preamp/DSP and splits into both the LFE/Subwoofer In on my PSW 650, and the sub input on my center.
After some reading, here is what I have decided to do. I am going to get some Y cables and go from the Pre-out on the amp that is running my two fronts to the Line level In on the PSW 650. I am going to keep the LFE/Subwoofer In attached, and leave the Subwoofer set to "Yes" in the preferences for my Preamp/DSP. My question is, has anyone tried this hookup brefore? If so, how did it go, and do you have any advice for maximising my sub output?
I understand that I will have to tweak it for a while and find out what I like best, but I figured someone might have some advice so that I don't have to backtrack. Sorry about the longwinded post, but I am on extreme amounts of cough medicine right now and seem to only be able to write anything in a stream of consciousness way. :D Anyway, any help and advice is appreciate.
