Use B1's as supplementary subwoofer

Have an L1 model 2 w 2 B1 subs and a T1 Tonematch.

I'd like to use the B1 sub capabilities with my home theatre. I'd think I could run the receiver/amp sub out to a T1 channel IN. Then I could use the T1 to dial back all but the sub frequencies. Then MUTE the other channels.

Anyone have such settings they could share?

Thanks.

Yes, you can do that. I'd connect to T1 channel 4.

Set the input trim so you get a solid green light with occasional flickers of yellow.

Control the volume with channel 4 volume control.

Try this Preset

Category: Utility
Preset: Flat

You probably don't need to do that.  The receiver/amp sub out is probably EQ'd appropriately.

Then MUTE the other channels.

Thanks.

Please come back and tell us what you hear.

Thanks,

ST

Re: Use B1's as supplementary subwoofer

Thanks ST. I'll give it a try later today.

I did make one major description error.  The amp does not have a sub out, just a direct out. Therefore there's likely no pre-EQ.

I have been getting my sub bass through a speaker center channel  using an "old but still accurate" Acoustimass 5 set (bought WAY back in the 90's). I'd like to get more bass. The B1's seemed a logical source, without driving the tower.

That's why I was thinking of trimming the frequencies with the T1.

AND I could save those settings as a scene called House Sub.
