New Subwoofer - Stereo/AV conflicts
Just added a new subwoofer (Gemini ll) to my setup and need some advice please.
First of all I need to say that I connect my stereo amp to the AV amp so that the fronts can be used for stereo and movie duties.
On the AV I've set all speakers to small with crossover at 90hz. Sub is connected to AV via low level (one cable)
Sub is connected to stereo amp via high level (speaker terminals)
If you've followed this you'll see that I have no conflicts when listening to my stereo amp as the AV is off and I can adjust the high level freq/gain on the sub for best sound. By the way I use the lowest freq 30hz.
However with AV (movies etc) the sub will be receiving two signals - low level and high level. I don't want high level and I thought that the sub would not receive a high level signal because the AV is only sending >90hz to the front speakers and the sub is set to reproduce 30hz signals. But I get sound reproduction from the high level input on the sub - should this be?
I see that the only option is to turn the gain on the high level signal on the sub right down everytime I watch a movie - or even unplug the high level connection (Neutrik)
Is there anything else I can do or is my setup correct?
