I just got my first Home theater speakers and receivers =) and wanted some help with setting up the receiver. I was able to get a steller deal on some Polks, but I'm a relative newbie as this is my first HT set. Right now I've setup the front, center, and sub. I plan to install the rear surrounds but haven't totally decided on 5.1 or 7.1. My wife prefers I go with 5.1 b/c of the sheer size of the surrounds. Anybody have any suggestions on what the receiver settings should be or any other basic setup suggestions?
Also does anybody have any thoughs on my receiver selection I was hoping to not have to get a seperate amp to power these guys, so I went with the below receiver as a suggestion from a buddy of mine.
Right now when I look at the Speaker Config menu I have it set as:
Front: Full Band
Center: 40Hz (Is this the optimal Hz setting for the center channel?)
LPF of LFE: 90Hz (Is this the correct or optimal setting? I wasn't sure if this was correct)
Any thoughts and or opinions would be helpful...I'm relatively new to all this.
I currently have the below setup:
DSW Pro 600
I have 2 pairs of the LSi F/X but haven't set them up and I may only install 1 pair of them as my wife doesn't really want me to install the 2nd pair :(
Integra DTR 8.9 Receiver.
