I have a Pioneer dv-444 dvd player/vsx-c300 combo home theatre system. I believe it is a 500 watt system. The bass tube has an adjustable knob on the back and I use the "super bass" feature. I've reached an equilibrium point to where everything sounds fine.
The problem is on some really, heavy bass moments on certain dvds, especially dts, the bass "drops" out (I think that's the appropiate term) or w/ too much bass it makes a wet sound.
What's the solution? Do I need that monster cable for the amplipher to the bass tube? Or do I need to adjust the knob to have less bass? I usually have it at 3/4 of its total power. Or do I need to play dvds w/o the "super bass" feature? Or what?
