Hello,

This is my first real system (intimus 4t hybrid), and so far I've been really satisfied.  However, when tuning the bass according to several articles on the net, I was instructed try to adjust the phase if the bass sounds a bit "boomy."  However I could not seem to find any phase setting on my Bravus II 8D, or in the product documentation.

Also, when the sub comes on from standby there seems to be a pretty audible pop.  Is this normal?  

 Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forum! 

We changed the naming convention for the phase setting to "distance" for the Bravus II, but it is the same thing.  So dialing in that setting in terms of how far you sit from the sub should get you optimal results in terms of phase. 

If the sub sounds boomy I would play around with the placement, moving it away from corners, walls and other reflective surfaces or try reducing your current settings of the parametric EQ and low bass adjust settings. 

Yes a slight pop when the amp kicks on is normal, you don't have to worry about the sub being damaged by it. 

I hope that helps but please let me know if you have other questions, thanks!

Thanks for the response!  I'm going to be playing with the position first to see if I can tone it down.  Also I haven't had a chance to even balance the room with my SPL yet :)

That said, I'm currently connecting a single RCA from the Subwoofer Pre-Amp in the receiver to the LFE input, but according to the UI Flow diagram, it looks like the distance setting is disabled when using the LFE input.  If I find I still need to adjust the phase, I'm assuming I would be able to get a Y adapter and plug into the L/R inputs?  Thanks!

Hmmm, no you should be able to use the distance setting at the sub regardless of whether you are using the LFE or left/right inputs.  

I do recommend using a y adapter though since it boosts the signal to the sub.
