I just recently moved into a new home and the theater room is in the basement. In my old house, I used to be able to feel the bass from the sub, but no longer can. Everything is set up like I had it in the old house, except the theater room was on the main floor.
I have the 990 set to small speakers for the fronts, center and surrounds. The fronts and center are crossed @ 80 and the surrounds @ 100. I have bypassed the crossover on the SMS and am letting the 990 do the work. I have adjusted the SMS and have a flat response curve.
My question is this-Is the concrete in the basement absorbing the lower frequencies? If so, what can I do?
