Something is wrong in the signal processing chain because there is no reason you wouldn't have the >30Hz content of the other sub. You need to dig into what the Audyssey is doing and make sure it isn't pushing the LP filter down. That would be first guess.Just completed my first build. I attempted to load pictures but the first time they were enormus and then the second time you can barely see them so I give up with that.
I have a birch wood box externally meauring 18 x 20 x 52 with a slot port tuned to about 18hz. I have installed the Tempest-X2 15" powered by a PE 500w plate amp with about 20% poly-fill. I am getting a tremendous amount of low-end rumble but it tends to taper off quickly once it goes up past 30hz or so (kinda of guessing here). I have the amp configured as followed:
- LFE direct input
- low pass gain-approx 1/3
- low pass freq-200hz
- eq freq-18hz
- eq bandwidth-.5
- eq level- -5 db
I ran Audyssey ( multeq-xt )from my Denon 4310 and set the crossover at 80hz and speakers set to small. Audyssey set the sub at +3db and then I bumped it up to +7 db.
So far this sub has more output down low than the MFW-15 it's replacing but doesn't come close after that. Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.
