Yea, I have the crossover set at 110Hz right now. Receiver is at 8 ohms which seems enough to me as if I crank it up to max volume on 8 ohms it gets distorted as is, so I don't see much need to take it to 6 ohms. Not to mention, I had the sub set at 50% volume and had the volume at "0.0dB" while watching Inception today and it was more than enough loud right there. The parents will never watch a movie that loud even though I liked it. I broke one of my mother's vases when it vibrated off the fireplace mantel during the last snow scene explosions.
I thought about setting the max volume, but it kind of depends on the source and sometimes I can see where my brother might have it set to max on quiet mp3 or radio station....I'd never get it that high on any blu-ray movie though. I did the YPAO setup, but adjusted it some as I sit in a spot different from where I calibrated it, so it brought up the right rear speaker too much for my liking, so I manually turned it down in the setup...not YPAO's fault...just a flawed room layout.
Otto, are you just watching your content in "Straight" then? Is that just basic unfiltered 5.1 when it's available?
I am still having some issues with adjusting the volume. I managed to get the TV and digital cable remote to turn the receiver volume up and down via the TV, but it still intermittently just blacks out the picture and it takes 3-4 seconds for it to restore itself, which is annoying, so not sure what the deal is there.
Also, when I turn on the TV, the system will turn on, but for some reason, it goes to "Audio 2", instead of "HDMI 2", which is what the digital cable box is connected to and nets a picture, but no audio forcing me to manually change it to the "HDMI 2" setting. Nothing is even connected to "Audio 2", so I'm a bit confused there. I'll just play with it a bit and see if I can get those gremlins worked out.
