Hi. I just got an STF-2 and I'm having a frustrating time getting set up.
I have an Outlaw Audio RR2150 receiver, HB-1 MK2 speakers and Pro-Ject Carbon turntable with an Ortofon cartridge.
I'm using the low level sub out jack in the receiver. I started out using the bass management switch in the rear of the receiver and setting it to 100hz. I have the volume on the subwoofer at 12 o'clock.
My living room is pretty small and cluttered (see diagram). There may be no good spot.
I can't get the subwoofer to sound right. I've been using the song Nappy Dugout by Funkadelic (on vinyl) to try to configure it because that song has a fat bass line. When the bass hits the lowest note the subwoofer seems to bottom out. It sounds really flat and slightly distorted.
I've tried using different bass management settings and using the subwoofer's own crossover. I've also tried moving the subwoofer around. No luck so far.
Can anyone give me some advice? Thanks!
