Please see my signature for my setup; I have recently added the Newcastle 7channel amp and have used the 2 back surrounds to bi-amp my front Monitor 70s. Since doing that, 2 channel music listening has been fantastic and the amp has added to HT sound. The problem is that now I've noticed that the center speaker dialogue sounds weak, as if the movie actors are whispering their lines. I have used the auto calibration from my pioneer and have calibrated with a SPl meter, so everything should be in balance. I have tried the thx settings with and without and it still sounds the same. Raising the dbls in the center helps some but that CS2 speaker doesn't seem to "keep up" with the Monitor 70 fronts now.
Question: Is this a result of biamping the 70s or is this a problem with getting pcm output from the PS3 (unable to do bitmap). Or is this a combination of both? I seem to remember before bi-amping that the center seemed to keep up well with the fronts when they were all getting the same juice. I thought if they were all leveled, it wouldn't matter if the Monitor 70s would be getting more juice than the CS2. Any suggestions? Thanks for your responses!
