I had mine in two very different rooms--soon to be hooked up in a third--and IIRC I could never get Audyssey within limits with the gain set more than a hair above 3.

-Infiniti CC-2 center channel speaker

Mostly for movies/cable. Enough power to shake the windows, for sure, but drowns out the talking sometimes. When kids put on Cartoon Network or Disney XD, the bass drowns out everything. WTF??

Please provide a recommendation for setup on the sub (phase, crossover, gain, digital vs pro-logic) as well as on the receiver (crossover setting, etc.)

Thanks very much!

Do these help?
