not getting 'full' sound out of my sub

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hmm.. i have the Xonar DS and when i play bassy music (or any music) its like something is holding the sub back (or restraining it).. i have to turn on the 'flexbass' option (turns hi-fi off thus distoring my music/games/etc) in the xonar ds configuration to get it where it should be at
this problem started happening after i hooked up my center channel with my sub (splitter) and now i cant figure out why
sorry if im not making sense... im tired i should probably take a nap.

Turning off Hi-Fi doesn't distort the sound inherently.. Hi-Fi just disables all other effects. Using the crossover frequency slider shouldn't affect sound at all, and if it makes the sub sound better to you, just do it.
