    Default Receiver & speaker settings

    Not sure how I should have my receiver settings for my speakers

    I have a Onkyo TX-S608 100 watts per channel
    Fronts 2 polk monitor 50s
    CS 2 center
    Rears 2 polk monitor 30s
    Sub Bic America f-12

    what should I have my speakers set to Full band FULL Band, 20-70hz, 80hzTHX or 100-200hz

    Sounds rather good still moving my sub around I have it on 100hz Pro-logic Receiver

    I'm thinking about upgrading to monitor 60s or 70s however as my AVR is only 100 watts per channel would getting the 60s be waste let alone monitor 70s? Would it just limit my max volume at like 60-70%?

    Btw if anyone is in the market for monitor 60s they're 110 at newegg.com until 1/5/2011 click on the email promotions on the front page to get the promocode

    Run the auto calibration for your receiver, set the x-over to 80hz. Set the front speakers to normal. Very important you run the calibration though.

    Are the speakers wired to the receiver,or the sub ?
    If wired to the receiver, set all speakers to small,crossover at 80, turn the crossover on the back of the sub all the way up to the highest value.

    Don't really get what you mean by limiting max. volume.

    All my speakers are hooked up to my receiver and the sub is hooked up via the sub in connection. I'll run Audyssey 2EQ now Thanks.

    All I did was run the Audyssey setup and left everything else to default. The Audyssey will sound the best. I've tried other tweaks with no better listening environment.

    Make sure the Audyssey mic is the same height as the listening height. I used an old camera tripod to hold it.

    I have an RT line of speakers, and the SR608 does the job just fine.
