  1. REW Forum
    Sorry if this has been answered, I did a search but only found one integrated sub/speaker and REW post regarding smoothing. When I read the tutorials on REW (I'm a newb) It lists measuring Left Front, Right Front, Left with Sub, Right with Sub, Subs alone, and Both Fronts with Subs. So If I...

    Help to time alignment sub at xover with new front speakers Hello, I have new front speakers (B & W 705) and a new receiver (Rotel RSX-1562). My center and surrounds are PSB Alpha b series. The fronts are better than the others. The receiver does not have an automatic PEQ but have a 10 filters...

    Hi guys, quick/weird kinda question here. I am gonna sell my previous bookshelf speakers to a buddy of mine and create a home theater for him. I have a JBL E35 center and 3 pair of JBL E20 bookshelf speakers. He has a 5.1 capable receiver. My thought was to use one pair for rears of...

    I'm re-running Audyssey XT32 on this Denon AVR-X4000 and Audyssey insists on setting the fronts to "large". This seems contrary to all I have read. I set all speakers to "small" in the manual setup, currently doing soft reset of the receiver. What's going on here? Thanks in advance.

    Hi all, I'm getting the CC-490 for $200. Will it match up OK with the Monitor 11 fronts? Thanks!

    I will be replacing my front left, center and front right speakers in the very near future. By that I mean within the next four months. I am seeking your input on this upgrade to help me narrow the search or refocus my efforts on other products. I am not concerned with low end effects on these...

    The title says it all. At this point, I'm not using two of my 7 channels on my receiver. What is your preference and why. My co-worker said adding more speakers would be his vote. He said it would help create a more encompassing sound stage. I can't say I disagree, but I like the idea of...
  8. System Setup and Connection
    Hi My home is under construction and im having the electrician prewire the rears, I was going to ask him to put some in wall wire to wall plates for the front L and R. Is there any disadvantage to doing this over having cables direct from speaker to amp resting on the floor?

  11. System Setup and Connection
    So I'm picking up some PSB Century 800i's tomorrow and they have duel connections on the back as seen in the photo below. I just bought a Onkyo TX-SR608 7.2. I'm wondering how I should connect these for my fronts. The guy I'm buying them from says he has connectors so I wouldn't have to use the...
  12. System Setup and Connection
    Well, several months back I talked to Salvasol and tonyvb about how to hook up my fronts, and sub on my Yamaha. Well, since im getting the Onkyo tx-sr876 today, I was wondering how should I hook up my fronts sub this time? I currently have my sub hooked up through speaker A out, and have my sub...

    Hey guys. First off, great forum, just signed up today but I've been reading here for a few months. I just bought a pair of Dali Ikon 8 speakers and they sound terriffic. ( Yes, I know about B&W and I like the Dali speakers more. They just sound more "alive" ) Ultimately I'm building a...
  14. Home Audio Speakers
    I would like to know if anyone is using 2 or more centers, fronts, and backs. Do you like the results? Does it require the need for seperate amp? Or is a quality Stereo enough to get the job done?
  15. Home Audio Speakers
    Well I've been enjoying a 2.1 config for years and finally decided that I'm going to upgrade to surround sound. However, I'm going to do it cheaply. My mains are my design and use the Peerless 850122 6.5" driver and the Vifa XT19 ring radiating tweeter...
