    Question System Tuning

    I'm using Polk Rt15i's for main and rear surround and a CSi30 center all hooked to a Yamaha RX-V420 amp and a Yamaha YST-SW205 sub. Sounds pretty good, but I'm not getting a whole lot of sound out of the rears. Can anyone suggest what to change. I can't find where to up the volume for the rears on the V420. I would have thought using 4 of the same speaker would make for a fairly even sound........

    Hi and welcome to the forum. See page 38 of your owner's manual to adjust your speaker levels:

    http://www.yamaha.com/menuitems/manuals/yec/RX-V420.pdf

    Ideally, you should use the Avia or Sound and Vision DVD (or equal) and a sound level meter to calibrate your system. Some people like to run their rears a little "hot" at +3 db from the calibration.

    Thanks again ! - if anyone has a used copy going cheap I'd like to hear from you - specially if you're in Australia :)

    Never mind - managed to borrow a copy locally - it's all configured and sounding sweet now !

    Thanks again guys :)
