This is my first HT setup and am having some initial concerns.
Pioneer 1120-k receiver
Monitor 70s as fronts
I purchased all of this recently around the same time so I have no previous reference for how this hardware would/should sound. Everything is wired with 12awg + banana plugs. My concern is that after powering the receiver on and running the initial MCACC calibration, the speakers sound a little off or empty. It's hard to explain but I thought they would sound bigger and fuller. I'm certain that I need to make some other adjustments to get better sound but I'm a little puzzled. What are the general steps one should do to tweak things? The calibration has all speakers set as small, but I haven't found where to set the crossover for the sub. I'm guessing this will improves things significantly. Should I also be setting the frequency range of the left right and center individually?
Also I noticed that on the back of the PSW505 there are speaker In and Out ports. Are these for bi-amping? Currently I just have everything running straight to the receiver.
The receiver has a ton of EQ presets which is overwhelming. Dolby Pro Logic IIz, couple of thx modes, and others. I'm just confused with which to use and/or if this could be effecting the lacking sound quality?
I'm sure everything is okay, I just need to spend some more time setting it up. Any input is greatly appreciated!
