Maybe it's just me. On some stations, it seems like the bass is way too strong that when they talk, it sounds like a drone (Sorry, I don't know the proper audio term, but you know exactly what I'm talking about.)

So what I do is to turn the Sub setting to -1. That works for me.

To understand this better, what exactly is happening with a negative setting?

I understand the + side. It adds more juice to the sub, so it product a strong bass sound.

With a negative setting, does it then take away, or cancel out the bass? Or there is really no negative.

Meaning:

-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,C,+1,+2,+3,+4,+5

is really:

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 Where zero (0) is off.

I would assume it just reduces the amplification of the sub woofer's signal. So, if the nominal amplification is 25dB(C), +/- settings adjust that amplification accordingly.
