Thanks Rick,
I am going to try that. I am not sure my processor does that, but it is not an expensive experiment to try it and find out.
Enjoy your music and keep us informed.
Thanks, God Bless,
Wayne

Hi, Wayne

I'd be interested in what you find out in your experiment!

Thanks!

Hi again, Wayne (thought I'd sent this earlier)

Some thoughts on my experience: when I originally ran the AUDYSSEY set-up it recommended the Triton 2's as LARGE fronts, the Invisa 525 rears and surrounds as SMALL, 130 HZ crossovers, and the Superstat 50 center as Small, 130 HZ crossover. I thought at the time that the bass from the Tritons was good, but I didn't like how thin the other speakers sounded, so I eventuall moved the crossovers down to 80 HZ for the rears and surrounds, 100 HZ for the center. It was about then that I began noticing that bass didn't seem as impressive.

I'm now thinking...it's just a theory..I'll check with NAD, that in multi channel listening modes, when the receiver senses more potential power demand in total (80 HZ or 100 HZ vs 130 HZ for the 5 other channels), it may roll off some deep bass output to the front LARGE speakers (output which it is willing to send to a non power consuming sub pre-out if it is connected, and let the sub's amp do the heavy lifting). So the bass rolloff, if it exists, may depend on how much power demand the other channels represent (I.E. lower HZ crossover settings).

In any case, the solution is simple enough: LFE connections, sub ON, so the receiver has a sub pre-out outlet for any bass it rolls off to the fronts.

Good luck in your experiment!

Rick

Thanks Rick,
It will take me some time to muster the
1) energy to start changing things around AGAIN on my home theater system and
2) get some ICs (RCA to RCA) long enough to hook up my Triton 2 fronts (that will not be hard) and my Triton 3 rears (that will take another purchase, I don't have long ICs laying around like that)
A couple of comments on what you have shared though, and of course it is strictly conjecture.
IF NAD does what you mentioned, then I doubt they will admit it in writing.
But they may admit, may really be doing something like you mentioned in those other "non-normal" modes like EARS.
And I would not let Audyssey tell me what crossovers to chose in any case, it is notoriously OFF about most things. I would make sure you center channel is set to 80 Hz, never higher.
I doubt that my situation will be the same as yours anyway, because I only have a processor and external amps. So the manufacturer would have no reason to worry about what power is going where.
Still you have given me another area to explore and some more possibilities, which is ALL FUN!!!!
Thanks, happy listening and God Bless,
Wayne

I wonder if sometimes AUDYSSEY recommended settings are more about not over taxing the receiver, than maximizing listening enjoyment???
