is this something that would change going from RCA to Optical? because that is the ONLY thing different from the way he had it set up when we tested it last night.

But you said he also had them running off a 2nd receiver that was receiving signal from the sub channel of the first receiver. If that is the case then the 2nd receiver would be receiving ONLY bass frequencies form the 1st receiver.

That's a pretty big difference in setup if you ask me.

That is how he ran it when he used it. Last night we tested it with only the receiver I purchased. I have stated this multiple times...

This seemed to do the trick. Or perhaps it was this coupled with the subwoofer being switched to on as mentioned by another poster.

Thanks for all the help guys.

Oh, and FYI: I posted this same exact topic at hometheater forums at the same time as I did here. I have yet to get a response. Yet another reason I love OCN.

Didn't notice this til just now. That is a good point. Thank you for the correction. I had just assumed large speaker=subwoofer.

Along with this, since the receiver is a multi channel receiver, and it sounds as if you are only running 2 channel stereo, make sure you find the setting for downmixing multi channel sources to stereo.

besides setting speakers to "large" in the speaker menu of the receiver, you will also have an option to turn the sub (LFE) channel off (or tell the system no sub is connected).

Possibly, depending on how (or where) the RCA patch cables were connected, the processing of a digital (your toslink) signal may be processed differently than an analog (the RCA) connection. It is also possible that the RCA connection was set up to not be processed at all (ie, an analog multi channel connection).

That is why, (as you have already found out) it is important to go into the setup of the receiver and make sure you have changed all of the settings that now pertain to the new connection.

Glad you got it working, but take the time to check all the other settings in the set-up menu of the reciever.

Are you absolutely positive that the 12"rs are Subs?

I have a pair of floor standing Pioneer's with a 12" in each cab, plus a 5" mid, and a tweeter. But the 12", is not a sub, its just a heavy Woofer; there is a difference between a Sub, and a Woofer.

I have a separate powered sub off to the side which has its own amp built into its cab; and that combined with the two 12" Woofer's... is really thunderous and provides outstanding sound quality in either 2.1 or 5.1 speaker settings!

There is a subwoofer (on/off) as well as an LFE setting. The LFE setting only goes from 0 to -10db. What should I set that too? When I changed it, it didn't make any noticeable difference.
