  • How do I get more mid-bass?

    I have dual SS18.1's with the Dayton.

    Running an Elite SC-05 for my AVR and 7 channel Focal Chorus with the largest tower (836) as my mains.

    The CHT subs are digging deep and have great low end. But I feel I am lacking the middle.

    I am connecting via the LFE port and my Dayton EQ settings is zero'd out.

    How do I get more mid-bass out of my subs?

    (FYI... My previous sub was a ported 10", 250watt Veloydne.)

    Do I need to change back to a ported design?

    Phil - Where is your receiver's crossover set? And do you have bass boost on?

      Hey Craig,

      X-over is at 80... And the bass boost is ON.

        Try turning the bass boost off. If this does not do enough, turn on the subsonic filter. Let us know either way how these two did for you, then we can continue.

          Did you use MCCAC to Calibrate and EQ? If so then change the crossover to a higher setting.

            Thanks Craig and MK.

            I will be spending some real time with tuning tomorrow. Thanks for giving me some starting points.

            I will respond with updates tomorrow.

            Thanks.

              MK,

              Yes, I did run MCACC.

                I agree...I have mine set at 120/150Hz and I love it.

                  Also agree. When I had my subs around 17-18 feet away I liked using a higher crossover (150).

                  Currently I have them on my sidewalls directly to the side of my LP, which puts the drivers about 6 and a half feet from me. With this configuration I prefer a lower crossover and am getting great punch.

                  So, I would try a higher crossover or try it nearfield or both.

                    Thanks guys!

                    Funny how I didn't even think of this, yet it's the most simple adjustment. How often do we overlook the most basic.

                    I have been working on my marquee sign today and haven't messed with the subs. But I will and will update all when I do

                    Thanks again guys!

                      Good point carp...I forgot to mention that my 2 subs are behind the AT screen and are located 14' from the LP. So, 5 speakers all the same distance away and together they form a wall of sound.:)

                        An AT screen is ideal. I needed the extra distance for my screen size. Next theater...

                          I also use an AT screen and sit 13-14 feet away.
