Hi Guys

I have a Denon 4311CI and 2xMirage Omnisat Floor standers and 6 satellites and a center for my 9.1

I use the prestige S10 for a sub, but am planning to change to (probably) SVS in the coming months (thinking of the SB13-Ultra or 2x. I don't have the tight bass that you actually feel. Unfortunately, I'm currently limited by the locations I can put the sub in my 17 x 12 living room (with two open archways to kitchen). I'm thinking about replacing the floor standing speakers with two spare satellites I have to give me additional places to locate one or more subs

I use Sonos throughout the house and the problem I have is that when it's on in the kitchen and the family room, there is audible overlap if you are near the openings. So unless I use stereo mode in the living room, the sound between the kitchen and living room is out of sync because of the delay for multi-channel modes on the denon. Drives me mad.

What I'm puzzled about is how to configure the receiver/sub for both 2-ch and 9.x use. From what i understand for 9.x you normally use the LFE, but for 2 ch (like I have in my porch and kitchen), I run the speaker outputs to the sub amp and from there to the speakers.

How would this work with the same sub(s) having to handle 2-ch and 9.x? Does the Denon use the LFE for 2-ch somehow?

Thanks in advance

Mark

Try setting the Denon's sub configuration to LFE+Main. I think that will do it. Of course, with that setting the sub will get the bass from your mains in your HT.

If you want to run the front channels to the sub and then to the main speakers I believe it coul still work if you set the subwoofer swich in the speaker config. menu to " no" and the front speakers to "large. That will force your low bass (including LFE) to the front speakers and allow you to use your hi/low pass filters on the sub to provide the bass management.
