Digital bass management can be a confusing subject! A 5.1 or 7.1 soundtrack has several discrete speaker channels, and also a Low Frequency Effects (aka LFE or ‘.1’) channel. The goal of digital bass management is to ensure that all of the bass present in the speaker channels and in the LFE channel is properly managed, so the speakers and subwoofer perform optimally. This generally requires directing the LFE channel to the subwoofer, and also redirecting the bass present in each speaker channel to the subwoofer.
Our Sound Experts at Customer Service can assist you with setting up your subwoofer and running auto-set-up in your A/V receiver. We’ll advise you on the best digital bass management settings for your particular speakers and subwoofer, so the entire system performs optimally and sounds great.
