Hi I recently purchased a set of Polk 6005's with a PSW010 Sub that I got on-sale on Boxing Day as a package. I have it powered by a Yamaha 5950 receiver. I have wired the speakers as per Polk's recs. (Fronts coming out of the Sub-woofer). I have set Front to Large, Center to Small, Surrounds to Small.
I have the Sub Crossover at around 150 Hz & my Yamaha Crossover setting @ 160 Hz for the Center & Surrounds as I understand the Sats don't do Lows very well. I have noticed the Center Speaker seems a little weak so I have in increased the "volume" from the receiver to it to boost this channel a little higher than the other speakers. Its seems to help. My 5950 has an Equalizer for the Center Channel too so it gives me a little more tweaking room.
My question is what should I set the output to each speaker from the receiver? Should they be equal or set to preference or is there any magic formula for this? Raising the output seems to give me more volume without turning up the Receiver as much. Is this okay or is a Line boost to the Speakers harmful in any way?
Sorry for the Newbie questions but I am really new to this HT stuff.:o I appreciate any feedback.
