    Smile Speaker settings for 7.1 Surround Sound

    Newbee here. I am hoping someoneone could help me set up my speaker settings for my surround sound room.

    I have 2 tsi500 for my fronts
    csi400 for my center
    rsi for my rears and sides.
    I am running a vsx43tx pioneer elite reciver

    I need help on how high to have the speaker levels, delay, ect..

    I do not think this reciever comes with a auto set up mic type thing.
    Is there anything I can buy to help me with my set up.
    Much appreciated for any help.

    Set all the speakers to small and your sub to 80hz.

    Set the distances for the speakers from your listening location.

    That should be it.

    Go to a nearby RadioShack and pick up a digital SPL meter. Use that to calibrate all of your speaker levels. Then either keep it or return it.

    So many people overlook setting levels. It makes a huge difference.
