    RSP980's bass management ?

    I've got a RSP980 prologic preamp and have been using the 6 channel analog input with my DVDA player. My question has to do with how the preamp deals with the LFE output in different modes, particularly in the 6 channel bypass mode. The reason being that if I adjust my sub level using the integrated test tone, it is ok for 2 channel mode but is too low (about -6db) when I run my DVD players test tones.

    Does the 6 channel analog input bypass:
    1. the RSP980's level/balance adjustment ?
    2. the RSP980's small/large switch at the rear ?
    3. the RSP980's 80Hz integrated x-over ?
    4. the RSP980's front tone controls ?

    I realise some will simply suggest that I turn up the sub's amp and turn down the RSP980's sub level... but I'm limited in adjustments since my sub's pro-amp is already set close to it's max. I'd also like to understand the processor before I add in a new sub parametric EQ.

    Thanks...

    Guess my unit is getting too long in the tooth... and not many people are still familiar with it's architecture... :?

      I'm not familiar with your particular piece of equipment but as far as I know the analog inputs should bypass everything but volume control. Perhaps a quick email to Rotel tech support can confirm this if there's no one else with the same gear here who can

        I'm in the same boat as Jason in I'm not familar with that unit...my first Rotel pre amp was the 976 which was the model below yours I think...anyway I'd email Rotel's Tech support to be sure but back then virtually all 5.1 inputs were true analog by passes. On trick you might try for the bass is that if you've hit the upper end of the sub adjustments simply start lowering the other channels till they all ballence out.
