    Discovered an odd behaviour on my RX-V1500

    repositioned my sub in the bedroom and reran YPAO. I checked the results, speakers were set to small, wired correctly, and sub detected. I then played some music and the mids were sounding closed off. Being curious I went into the manual settings and found that bass was configured to come out of both sub and satellites. I changed that to sub only and it really cleaned up the sound nicely.

    It most likely set the crossover point higher freeing up the driver and its energy, to concentrate on the mids. Small speakers have a tough time handling full range but I find it odd that your AVR set them to small while still sending bass frequencies to them.

    At least you have it figured out and are pleased with the sound.
