When I go to the Monster Sound Control Pannel, I have the option of choosing the 4 channel mode as "Stereo 2X" (both channels the same) and "Quad". When I chose Quad mode, I lose most of my power to the subwoofer and I dont get as much bass. But when I have it set to the Stereo 2X mode, I get all of the bass and power. Is there a way to prevent this or am I not understanding something about the 4 channel mode? Does this happen with the SBLive! users out there? Please respond.
