It's IayTayAirrrs in my Amsterdam-based system.
Still loving it and a PS Audio Dectet recently replaced a Quintet resulting in even better sound.

Oh LOL. duh....well, you likely have a surround field active over your 2 channel stereo, thats the only way they can be on. Or run in direct mode. If all else fails, make sure you don't have A/B one and do a micro re-set, it's possible it's just a strange screw up internally.

LOL, I am an idiot. I don't know how I did it but my surrounds were all screwed up. I know I set them up right, but something must have moved on me unknowingly. I had my rears set to fronts, I had thought that the rears were sounding a bit funny with movies. As I said I have always had a 5.2 set up, so I thought they just sounded different. Glad that is over. I also screwed it up again and set them to surrounds and that put the rears into pre out and the sides in preamp. took me a minute in amp assign to realize they have to be set to surround rear vs just surround. Talk about a duh? LOL

I was going to assume you had the rears on zone 2 stereo or something...

Yeah, something happened in amp assign. I know I set them all up right last week when I finished mounting them. This is not even a joke, but I sweat this unit sets things by itself. I don't know if it happens from power outages or what, but I cannot tell you how many times I have thought it sounded funny and sure enough all my settings were changed. Does anybody ever see this? Nobody in the house touches it other than me, so it is not my kids as they don't care about that stuff. My daughter will put in a movie sometimes, but she does not fiddle with it.


Anyway, I wanted to get an idea of what it sounds like outside of my room. So I just took a decibel meter outside a few minutes ago and walked to the fence line to take some db's around the property. I jacked my room up to -9 with music, fairly bass heavy music and took some readings. On an overcast windy day here and sitting at the fence approx 40+ feet, I am getting #'s like 45 to 55 db's. I cannot not even really hear the music at the room other than just a low beat. It is daytime and windy, but that is just the fence line? I walked over to my one neighbors yard and went into the property a bit and really could not hear a thing? I can imagine late night when everything is quiet, maybe, but I don't know what they are complaining about? So then I held the decibel meter close against the siding of the room and I was getting about 60 to 68 decibels, then I moved it to the window and it spiked to 78 to 80+ decibels, same with the exterior door. So that tells me the windows and door are probably most of my escaping sound problems.

What I think I am going to do is just take out the windows and then do something with the door or buy an acoustical door and add a storm door and that should knock a good deal of sound down there. I will just have to tone it down after 9 pm. As far as I am concerned somebody is just being a ****, because I cannot hear a damn thing 45' from my room?

Try getting in your vehicle and taking a measurement with all the windows up with if turned off. They are hearing bass and you'll get a better idea of how it sticks out with quiet surroundings in your vehicle I would imagine. I know when I used to piss people off at stop lights or stores the bass was so much louder for both the people in buildings and vehicles around me than it was just standing outside. I would crank it up to 155-160dbs right in front of glass store front windows freaking customers out! Man it's crazy just thinking about how stupid 16-18 year old teenagers treat surrounding people. I still have a stereo in my truck and always turn it down well before pulling up to a light or into a parking lot now just out of habit.

But at night it will be different too. I remember one night me and a friend were doing the country road late night smoke out ride. That was rather regular lol. And we were kinda getting close to getting back into town when we passed a guy walking on the side of the road who was waving us down telling us to stop like he knew who we were. Sure enough it was one of our buddies that had gotten into a fight with his girlfriend and was walking home. He said he had been hearing us for over 30 minutes which would have meant he heard us when we got out of city limits and turned it on and did our lap around that side of the country roads. I'd guess the furthest away we ever were from him was about 7-10 miles but that's just a guess. It could have been 5-20 miles since he would have been hearing in a straight line. But it was funny because he said he knew it was us after 5 minutes went by with it both getting louder and softer and just kept hoping we would come back into town on that road. I grew up in a small town (30,000 pop) so literally everyone in all the highschools knew my Jimmy and heard us country cruising if they were parked in a field somewhere chilling.

My car is out front, I most likely would not hear anything out there. I cannot hear anything out front, even today walking the property for noise. With the changes I am about to do I should cut down 50% of the noise. I have been jamming all day and no problems. Like I said I am just going to have to chill out around 9pm.

Anyway, what a difference with my S8 surrounds, man do they sound fantastic. I put in Michael Jackson This is it, on account of Archaea. I gotta say the AQ was incredible. The movie itself sucked, but sounded great. I then put in Dave Matthews Live at Radio City and again great 5.1 sound quality. I think I have the 215's and the single 8's dialed in good now. I can recommend not setting you rear surrounds to front in amp assign.
