Hi all. Haven't posted in some time. I just purchased a pair of Rti8s from Frys for a pretty good price. It made me start thinking about my current setup and quite frankly they sound better than my older Bose so I needed to make some changes to my setup. I guess I would like either confirmation that my current setup is ok and/or any suggestions for improvement. As it is now, it sounds pretty good to me. I use it mostly for gaming and movies and less often for music. Current set-up:
Receiver: Onkyo TX-SR601
Fronts: Rti8 - Set to large
Center: Csi30 - Set to small
Rears: Fxi30 - Set to small and bipole (located behind head)
Subs: I have two smaller subs (PSW10 and PSW202) located beside of each of the front speakers. I'm currently connected by running out of the receivers sub out using a Y that splits into two additional Y cables plugging in to each subs left and right.
Receiver is set for Sub=Yes, Front=Large, Center=Small, Rear=Small, Rear Center=No, XOver=80Hz
I also have the crossovers on both subs set to max, vol set to mid, and phases set to 0.
I realize that I can wire directly from receiver to subs and then to the fronts from the sub and set the Sub=No in the receiver filtering. Assuming I dont want to go this route and I want to continue to use the sub out on the receiver (the way I have it now) does anyone have any advice for a better set up than my current one? I'm mostly curious about sub and reciever filter settings and avoiding dual filtering and such. Thanks.
