LPF of LFE
(Low-Pass Filter for the LFE Channel)

`

80Hz, 90Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz

Onkyo tx sr608 user manual

With this setting, you can specify the cutoff frequency
of the LFE channel’s low-pass filter (LPF), which can
be used to filter out unwanted hum. The LPF only
applies to sources that use the LFE channel.

Note

• If you’re using THX-certified speakers, select “80Hz”.

Double Bass

With the Double Bass function, you can boost bass out-
put by feeding bass sounds from the front left, right, and
center channels to the subwoofer.

`

On:

Double Bass function on.

`

Off:

Double Bass function off.

Note

• This function can be set only if the “Subwoofer” setting is set to

Yes”, and the “Front” setting is set to “Full Band”.

• If you’re using THX-certified speakers, select “Off”.

Speaker Distance

Here you can specify the distance from each speaker to the
listening position so that the sound from each speaker
arrives at the listener’s ears as the sound designer
intended.

tening position.

Note

• Speakers that you set to “No” or “None” in the Speaker Config-

uration cannot be selected (

Level Calibration

Here you can adjust the level of each speaker with the
built-in test tone so that the volume of each speaker is the
same at the listening position.

`

–15dB to 0dB to +12dB in 1 dB step.

Note

• Speakers that you set to “No” or “None” in the

“Speaker Configuration” cannot be selected (

41).

• The speakers cannot be calibrated while the AV receiver is

muted.

• The test tone is output at the standard level for THX, which is

0 dB (absolute volume setting 82). If you normally listen at vol-
ume settings below this, be careful because the test tone will be
much louder.

*1

For the center speaker and subwoofer, the level settings made
by using the Home menu are saved (

24).

Tip

• If you’re using a handheld sound level meter, adjust the level of

each speaker so that it reads 75 dB SPL at the listening position,
measured with C-weighting and slow reading.
