I have a Yamaha Clavinova CVP-609. It has fantastic sound out the front but high-end frequencies are subdued when listening from the rear of the unit which faces out to my living room area. All of the speakers (except one woofer) in the CVP-609 face the person playing (me) who gets the great sound; those listening from the back of the unit don't hear the highs. I purchased a Yamaha MSR100 powered speaker to connect to the CVP-609's AUX output jack hoping to enhanced the highs for those listening from the rear. With the CVP-609 volume at half, the MSR100 speaker's input gain and master volume at half I can't hear any sound coming from the powered speaker. I have to turn the CVP-609 volume past half and the powered speaker's input gain and master volumes to 3/4 full and in a small living room, it's not overly loud. Does anyone have any experience using an external powered speaker with a digital piano or keyboard? Any suggestions on how to set the volume controls for optimum sound? Is it better to turn the powered speaker's input gain to full and adjust the volume using the speakers master volume? Thanks smile

How have you connected the speakers to the piano? Are you using the piano's line output?

The speaker is connected to the unamplified AUX line out marked L/L+R via standard unbalanced phone plug cord 6 feet in length.

I was surprised to read that your piano volume control affects the aux output.

Usually there's no effect ... and that led me to think you were using the headphone output. But since that's not the case, I'm not sure what to say.
