hi, i just bought onkyo 508 and Jamo s606 5 speaker with sub 250. i run auddysey calibration form onkyo, and it stated center speaker --. i tried few times it come out same result. when i interchange my FL cable to my center speaker, error message appear on FL. My living hall area for Home theater setup is 9ft x9ft. SPekaer distance is detected as 3.6 m for FL,FR and Center. 2.1m for SL, SR. Whn do calibration, all speaker test tone can be heard. distacne can be calculate. but just dunno why error message keep coming out

called technican from shop, they came to check and same result.

if i play music or movie, all channel produce sound.
,,is it because of my center speaker placement too low form ear level? or its too near to my Front speaker? or too near to my TV?

help...

I know when i've run my audessy i've had polarity errors on my rear speakers even though they were hooked up correctly, somewhere in my Denon manual it says that sometimes it will have errors and to ignore them if you know things are hooked up right.:dontknow:

is it important to run auddysey correctly?
if the process not done, what is the best way to calibrate my speaker to the best sound?.. my center speaker tweeter is below the tweeter level from my front speaker. is it neccessary to raise my center speaker up to my ear level?

I would suggest running Audessey again making sure that you have the mic in the correct position. Do not place it on the headrest of the sofa it must be placed on a trypod facing straight up so that it is directly where your head would be when seated.

Sometimes it's just impossible to get your center at ear height or inline with your front L&R's but as close to possible across the board would be good but imagine if you put your center inline with the fronts, you'd probly end up blocking your screen:doh:.
My center is just below the tv which is just below ear height at my seating position.
I think trial and error are all you can do to get it right.:T

And also try Tony's suggestion as there can be many varibles to audessy that can throw it off. When i have set mine up i unplug the fridge shut off HVAC, basically anything that makes noise so the mic doesn't pick it up.:T

each speaker will be different due to room acoustics and placement. 0db is just a starting point but you will require an SPL meter like this one or this one if you go that route.

I believe if you use the spl meter you will be setting it up manually, not using audessy at all.:scratch: Does your AVR tell you what the error is other then which speaker is giving the fault? Such as polarity or size.

Yep polarity is just the connection, like i said earlier mine has done that too but the manual states something to the effect of ignoring it if you know your connection is right.:T

I would recommend running the auto setup again, if you are sure the cables are correct, ignore the warning and carry on.
After the setup has finished, the use the SPL meter to fine tune the system, use the manual tone output on the amp, use "C" weighting, fast detection on the SPL and set the sound level to 80db on the SPL.
Start the test tone and ajust the volume level of the LF speaker up or down until it reads 75db, repeat for all the speakers. Then manually ajust the sub until it sounds right for you.
You could use a device called Anti-Mode 8033C, plug the cable for the sub into this device then plug a cable from this to the sub, press a button and wait, sub calibrated automatically.
