Howdy All,

First time post.
My system sounds very thin. I have a Pioneer VSX-33TX Receiver
Paradigm Sub PS 1000 50-150 Hz and New Wave by NHT speaker system rated 150-20 Hz.
Any recommendations for set-up

Thanks

Check the crossover setting on your receiver or subwoofer for the correct match to your system. It could be very helpful to run Avia, etc. calibration disk to setup your speakers for correct settings including distance. 150 Hz sounds very high, most satellites (assuming they are) cut off between 80 and 100 Hz. You should have setup recommendations if you have the manual with the speakers.

Check the mounting of your speakers also. If your speakers are not mounted to the wall or if they sit on carpet it will cut the richness of the speaker. You have good speakers but placement and coupling them to the hard floor or wall solid mounts will help. Make sure you have good speaker wire also. If you change anything, I would find a higher CURRENT amplifer (do not confuse this with wattage).:cool:

Hi ATX -

I noticed in your post that you discribed you sound as being "thin." More times than not, this usually sounds like a cut in the midrange to lower treble section, and starting to over compensate in the mid to upper treble section of the sound. Also, when you say it sounds thin, I don't think subwoofer crossover, so if you don't mind can you elaberate on thin a little.

Thanks
