Default New Tower speakers, now no bass from sub


I am having some trouble getting my sub-woofer to work properly. Please help.

I recently purchased Klipsch R-625A tower speakers with atmos to replace the front satellite speakers on my Onkyo HT-R695 system. I also replaced the Onkyo center with a Klipsch R-34C speaker.

They sound great, i think they could use a bit more power then the receiver is sending, but over all there great. The problem is my sub-woofer, it is barley putting out any bass. I have to turn the gain all the way up on the back up the sub and i have the db setting maxed out in the level adjust menu.

This nets me some bass from the sub and it does rumble some during large action scenes, but no where near the level i was getting before swapping to the towers and new center channel. These are my first ever tower speakers, so is this just to be expected when using large towers for the front channels?

Crossover settings
Front L/R: Full Band
Center: Full Band
Height: 180 HZ as recommended by Dolby
Surround: 150 HZ
LFP to LFE: 80 HZ

I have also tried many different configurations for the crossover point, but this seems to bet the most bass out of my sub.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you try turning "Double Bass" on?

What settings were you using before changing to the new speakers?

Based on specs of the new speakers, I'd suggest these x-over settings (based on specs):
Center spec: 82Hz - 21kHz +/- 3dB - Set x-over to 90-100Hz
Front spec: 38Hz - 21kHz +/- 3dB - Set x-over to 50-60Hz
