Hi all. I have an Integra dtr 6.4 that sounds pretty good to my ears. But I'm having trouble getting my sub to work. There is an rca input Jack on back of the unit, there are setup entries that control sub:eek:n/off and also crossover points. Nothing I've done seems to work though. Anyone have any experience with these guys? Thanks in advance for any tips

Is this a new-to-you avr? How about the sub? What are you testing with? Music or a movie with .1ch content (or both)? You sure you are using the sub pre-out rather than multi-ch/dvd-in jacks for the sub?

Does your unit automatically set your speakers to enable bass management when you use a crossover (seems my Onkyo does that, or calls them "full range" otherwise)?

If all normal settings don't get your sub to work (and we're assuming you definitely have a working sub and is setup appropriately), you might try a reset of the avr, first a soft one (just unplugging it for a bit) and perhaps a full/microprocessor reset if that doesn't do it.

Interested in the full reset. Got a link to one?
Yes, working sub. Not exactly sure on the settings. Testing with music. New to me avr.

Also, the remote is weird... I can't seem to get it to much other than on/off and volome.

One thing that's a good start with a used unit is to do the reset, in your manual on pg 78.

Music needs the bass management to play thru the sub, so is that enabled? You're not sure of the sub settings or just the avr?

Nope, didn't change anything... I think my rca output Jack is broken inside... Wiring or something. I can calibrate the speakers in the settings, and the left and right speakers display and make a noise, but then when I select sub, it displays on the receiver, but the sub does not make any noise.

Could be. Used gear has it's potential issues.

Glad it worked out. Integra is good avr for the price. I have a middle end Integra 20.4 5.1 that I got used as well.

I've found settings in it that are so incredible... something about the degree of listening angle... And a widening something-or-other. Amazing

Double bass. I'm not sure what it is, but when I turned on, voilã!

That's a way to duplicate bass between speaker and sub. Probably more noticeable with music since there's no .1ch to begin with. Not something I use.

That's a good question, and I will try it out tomorrow and let you know. (Anything inparticular I might notice?)

That the sub will work :) is recommend small over double bass, without knowing you speakers. In AVRs it has to be setup that way if using a sub. Also note some direct modes will not output to the sub as well.

So this whole time you've had your setup instructed not to use the sub except for LFE?

I don't even know what lfe is. Also, what are direct modes?
