Outlaws are connected via Y splitter to Yamaha.
Polk's are biamped. Everyone seems to say this does nothing but I beg to differ. It sounds much different switching back and forth between that and 7.1 enabled.
My LP is about 11 ft away from my front 3. The center channel aligns with my LP. My other fronts sit about 3-4 feet away from my center on either side. My Plus (which was my original sub) sits in the front right corner about another 3-4 feet away from my FR. I did a sub crawl and this was the best position. My EX is sitting between my center and my FL. It's right up next to the FL because of my TV stand. That is not permanent position, I just have not had time to do another sub crawl. All that being said, I do have an open floor plan. My living room opens to my kitchen. All in all about 4300 cu ft. I just recently bought the EX, someone over on the sub forums was coming off of it for a price I couldn't pass up. Not to mention he was in pick up distance.
I am just completely dissatisfied with the results YPAO has come up with. I can manually tweak things like gain and frequency and Q (whatever that is) and am looking to do so free of YPAO.
Like I said, I found on the sub forum to disregard whatever YPAO or Audessey for that matter came up with for your subs and to tweak them manually. I am looking for a bit of direction with my other 5 at this point. Thanks for any input you may have.
