Dude... I'm not sure how accuratet hose specs are, but it is listed as a 1200 watt amplifier. Devide that by 6 that's 200 watts per channel. Now, more than likely your sub is gonna get more power than the rest of your speakers, so I doubt it is split like that. More than likely each channel gets under 200 watts, while the LFE is fed more than 200 watts at peak.

Yeah, that should be a pretty loud system dude. I know it depends on other things such as frequency range, SPl, etc... but just going off the specs on that Amazon listing you got a pretty decent setup dude.

Maybe the ps3 and 360 dont give it enough power. if i watch a film via the cd/amp it is much louder than watching films through ps3 or 360, they are loud though.

It has got a very good sound on it and its crystal clear what ever volume its on.

I think if the volume went to 40 rather than 35 i would be happier. it would give me that little bit more that i want from it.

I would recommend it to anyone i just expected a bit more...but then i always do from what ever i buy tbh lol

The 360 has the worst sound. i can turn the amp to max and watch a film and theres hardly any options on the 360 to alter the volume like the ps3 has.

Oddly its louder if i watch a film via the cd player (amp), but through my ps3 with optical its seems a tad quieter and through the 360 its considerably lower. i dont understand why though?

Thanks anyways

Have you tried fiddling with Dynamic Range Compression (DRC) settings for Dolby Digita on your receiverl? If you want it louder mebbe you should set it to full range decompression.

Since the problem you're having is with your PS3 and XBOX and those generally put out Dolby Digital signals this could well be your problem.

Hi, i found the DRC setting and there was 3 options: Off, Normal and Max. it was on Off but ive set it to Max and im about to test it.

As the Ps3 has so many sound settings when i switch to optical which ones should i be ticking? also ive set the player to Afd Multi, is this ok?

Hope this works

EDIT: that seems to have worked. the sound is now noticeably louder via the ps3 and 360.

Many thanks sharangad for that info :-)
