Did you change the BFD's rear panel switch to the +4 dBu setting?
I'm having trouble understanding how a standard consumer level receiver, outputs signal that cause clipping with the sub trim turned all the way down. There's something not right.How can I further reduce the signal to the BFD
That's quite high for a consumer product. The standard for most consumer receivers is about max of +2dBV ( ~1.25vRMS) and nominal of -10dBV ( ~315mvRMS). This is the level that the -10dBV switch position assumes in the BFD.puts out 4V at 1.7K ohm.
Yes, I am guilty of having done that before.Guys, thanks for your help. I will be sure to give the +4 a shot when I get home. I'm wondering how many others are in the same boat and have kept the BFD at -10 and clipping. I'm not using anything fancy for a receiver, there's got to be millions of Yamaha's in use. Once I get this dialed in I will post some of my results. Thanks again.
