I had this in the opinion area, but it really needs to be here:
I have an Onkyo 898 THX receiver to go with my new RM7600 speakers which I haven't had a chance to set up yet (receiver arrived yesterday).
I want to take full advantage of THX, DTS, and Dolby Digital movies but I'm not sure which speaker/subwoofer wiring arrangement works best with all three without compromising the movie sound qualityof any of these formats
One issue of the Speaker Specialist wrote about Bass Mgt ('The THX Exception') and it mentions that when you switch to THX mode that bass mgt filters are activated and the front L/R and centers are high pass filtered at 80 Hz (bass removed below 80Hz) and that the subwoofer output jack is turned on to high pass filter at 80Hz as well - which I guess means that I should hook up my PSW650 to the sub-out jack - I thought that the best set up was to not to hookup the woofer to the sub-out because it has a fixed cut off - I'd rather use the PSW650 to adjust the bass roll-off and not be constrained by the sub-out's inflexibility yet at the same time take full advantage of THX, but not at the expense of DTS, and Dolby Digital.
- can anyone recommend the speaker/woofer wiring that lets me do all 3 formats at their best? Your help would be greatly appreciated as I need to know what to do before I get started on setting up this system :-)
