    I have an 8020A Left and Right pair.

    I have been given a 7060B, but when I plugged it in, I hear a little, but not a lot. It says in the manual that this thing can deliver 85 <<insert unit here>> of sound and to be careful, (implying it's loud!) so I was expecting a bit more rumble from this thing.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Computer > Mixer > then...

    Left cable -> genelec 8020A right > Front Left 7060B.
    Right cable -> genelect 8020A right > Front Right 7060B.

    What's LFE for?
    I understand LFE is some kind of channel intended just for low frequencies. Would it be a bad idea to connect the mono output to the LFE input that is Could I (should I) plug Mono into LFE?
    Nothing is plugged in directly from the mixer. Can it be? (again is this bad).

    I've currently wired it up as above. So the subwoofer is wired in front left/right via the 8020A's.

    Any help appreciated.

    The rest is fairly self explanatory.

    Of course thats where Max sent you. Is there some other question you need answered?

    ok thanks,
    It's second hand and those things didn't come with it, so that explains a bit.

    All of the pdf's as far as connections and even the owners manual are available at both of the addresses that Max and I sent you.

    You're welcome and you owe Max an apology.

    Thats also not the recommended sub for 8020's. It matches 8030's. You'll have to turn it down anyways.

    and no I don't, RTFM is a downright rude, single word post, that served to flame rather than help. I had read the manual, or what was left of it, and wanted somebody to say "have you checked xyz" not have you read the manual.

    Grow a pair junior.

    If you noticed, I left it at a single entry and even added the question mark to indicate that maybe you didn't have the manual and just needed to read it. I didn't crawl your butt for it. I now see that you probably lack the where with all, and possibly the aptitude to comprehend what you read as well. I didn't imply anything... I simply posted a link to the manuals. I've been told RTFM for over 30 years... so what?

    If you HAD really read the manual, you would have found all the information you needed.

    If you would have even simply hit one of the search engines for LFE + audio, you might have even found what LFE means.

    You wanna flame, go right the hell ahead. I really don't give a rats ass about your opinion, little boy.

    Lemme tell ya one thing slick, at least I DO know how to search and find out wtf I need for better than the majority of what I want to find out.

    I mean, c'mon... I had to do your homework for you, so you would even know what LFE is.

    Let me tell you what's rude... to post an asinine, simple question that my 9 year old grandson could search out and find the answer to. Granted, like you, he probably would need me to explain what most of the words meant. But at least he would know to search before asking a question like that.

    Toughen up your hide and learn that when you look like a noob and a rube, you'll likely get treated as the same as you treat others.

    You wouldn't last an hour on one of my gigs before you went home cryin to your momma.

    You pissed down your leg and got called on it. So now your mad, your mad as hell... waaaaaa... deal with it.

    Jebus... you wanna post in a professional audio forum... then deal with looking like you haven't got a clue.

    I have to deal with a lot more pressure than some kid who thinks that he doesn't need to know his gig enough, to call himself an audio professional... Try hangin' a coupla tons of truss, rigging and gear over 20,000 people's heads and things going wonk beyond your control and you've got a client and crew up your butt because the clock is tickin'.

    Ever deal with a client who was up your tail gripin' about the clock and the budget and wanting to take an inferior product to market? And wanted to lay it all on you because they screwed the session up?

    You probably haven't, nor will you ever likely even deal with the beginning level of professional audio if you can't even be reminded of the the simple fact that you pulled a noob move and someone called BS.

    Grow up.
