Fired up my new audio setup today and was a little disappointed.  I'm using a Yamaha Rx-V765 connected to 3 JBL Eon 515's.

The speakers are connected via the Yamaha's preamp outputs.

The problems is it seems like I really have to have the speakers and receiver cranked up pretty loud to get decent volumes.  When I was using the speakers connected to my mixer I never had to turn them up that high.

I have a feeling the preamp voltage level might be a little low.

Could I used something like a Berhinger MX882 to increase the signal going to the speakers?

Just noticed the EON's have a -10db/+4db button.

Problem solved.

Nice find!  Beats adding more equipment to the setup.

Tell me about it, I've got over $3k invested in equipment already.  When I told my wife I was going to have to spend more she did not look pleased.

Now I just have to wait for some warmer weather so I can fire it up.

Lol ain't that the truth! Hopefully I'm done spending for the season.  I've already told her next season I'm getting butt kickers.
