How to configure pre out and sub out on 250
#1
Recently got a 250 and very pleased I am too. My query is the configurator informs what can be configured but does not give instructions on how to do it, for example pre out/sub out or have I "lost it". Any assistance gratefully recieved.
Cheers,
Bill

Must admit the instructions for sub out are a bit vague.

Hi Ozthepoz,
Thanks for the link but been there and not that helpful, Perhaps I need a step by step instuction manual but they are becoming a rarity.
Cheers,
Bill.

There are lots of people on here using subs, perhaps someone could chime in with some practical help? Smile

Hi Guillaume,
Yes, i have read a number of post's where enthusiasts are using subs. I have connected mine using the high level inputs but I am curious about the sound quality using line level. Hopefully someone will give me a step by step guide.
Cheers lots,
Bill

Hello Bill - I'm driving my sub from a mono line output. Here's how I set it up from the configurator:

* in the configurator by default you should see two connections headed "Digital", between the Line 1 and AES/EBU connectors

* select the down-pointing arrow under the left-hand Digital heading, to bring up a configuration dialog headed "Digital 2 Settings"

* select the "Pre-amplified Output (Mono)" option (the dialog box title will change to "Sub Settings")

* the mix should be set to "Mono" by default; adjust the output level to suit your sub's line input if necessary

* select the filter parameters you want to use, if any (most likely either full-range or low-pass)

* select OK to close that dialog; the configurator should now show the connector as a "Sub" output

That's the basic set-up.

By bringing up the Speakers configuration dialog you can then configure the speaker output to use a high-pass filter if you wish. (I found this helped the sub and main speakers to integrate more effectively.) If you do that, you'll probably want the high-pass filter to apply when the pre-out is ON, but full-range output when the pre-out is OFF.

Another option which I found helpful when setting up the sub is to configure one of the buttons on the remote to toggle the pre-out (that is, sub output) on and off.

Hope that's helpful, and sorry in advance if I've missed anything. Let us know how you get on!

When I get to this step:
By bringing up the Speakers configuration dialog you can then configure the speaker output to use a high-pass filter if you wish.

There are no options I can change. . the "filtering section" - as most of the items - are grayed out?
