I recently purchased an Onkyo receiver and used the auto-setup to configure my speakers. I was interested in knowing how many of you use the auto-setup verses trying to set them up (configure) manually?
During the auto-setup, I noticed 2 things which didn't seem right. The Onkyo measured the distance extremely accurately. However, it detected my front 2 speakers as "SMALL" - they are Monitor 50's.
Also, it set the sub-woofer level at +10dB while all the other speakers were like -1 to -2dB
While I kept most of the auto-setup recommendation, I configured the front speakers to show as "LARGE" (there were only 2 options). I turned "double-bass" ON (which let's the system use the sub-woofer for additional bass during stereo mode) and set the subwoofer volume at +2dB instead of +10db.
Finally, when I looked at the EQ, I couldn't make out if they were set correctly or not - so I just left it as is. Are there any recommendations for good EQ settings for speakers (assuming one listens to a lot of rock/ jazz etc.)
