RE: Tannoy Sfx sub settings

Hi near dark

What speakers do you have to go with this subwoofer?

There are not any correct settings for a subwoofer to be honest just a good starting point. I would advise the folowing

Phase set on 0

Turn the gain or volume on it up to no more than half way

Lastly put the crossover setting at around 80Hz

When you have done this you will have to run the YPAO setup on your amp using the mic supplied by Yamaha. After callibration if the subwoofer is too loud you can turn it down on the amp in the speaker menu rather than on the sub as it steps down in 1/2dB steps so is easier to judge, especially if you dont have a SPL meter using the test tone option.

Note: Position in a room will alter the sound from it dramatically




A/V Pioneer SC-LX78 Amp

Speakers B&W 683 S2 685 S2 HTM61 S2 Centre 610 Subwoofer Onkyo SKH410 Atmos

Calibrated 4K Panasonic TX-50AX802B

Blu-ray Sony PS3 PS4

HDMI Monster ISF2000HD

Netgear ReadyNas104 12TB
