I like the klipsch, but I really need a new center channel. So I was kinda waiting for s klipsch center to go on sale. Now frys has the energy's on sale. I guess I need to go listen to them.

As I mentioned before (and I know tons of others have as well), the Energy's and Klipsch's have much different sound signatures. The Energy's are warmer and more laid back, the Klipsch are more clean and crisp. IMO the Energy excel at music, the Klipsch at movies. But, I think the Energy is better at movies than the Klipsch are at music, if that makes sense. (I'm talking about RC-52/RF-52 vs RC-70/RC-LCR)

Definitely try listening to both, and seeing what you like best. I have the Klipsch Reference line, but I am changing over to the Energy RC line.

Are you using the same input as you did before? your AVR can have different speaker configurations for separate inputs.
The sound is the same regardless of the input.

I ended up resetting the processor on the HK in order to clear all the previously stored settings.

Now,

The Speakers are all set to LARGE.

The Sub is set to NONE

But, the x-over is still listed as 40 Hz for each speaker. The default setting is 100 Hz.

Since the Sub is set to NONE and all the speakers are set to LARGE, I would imagine that the x-over setting(s) wouldn't be in use. No matter what, the x-over settings are variable starting at 40 Hz - 200 Hz.

After some more listening ,after the receiver was reset, it sounds fine, but I still think †hat certain surround sound fields cut the bass / low frequencies off below 40 Hz.

Here are some pictures of the respective menus on the receiver:

Just because it shows 40hz doesnt mean it is being applied. Are you expecting your speakers to even play below 40hz??? Im willing to bet they are playing fullrange and just rolling off on their own.

60" Panasonic Plasma ~ BenQ HT1075 / 92" fixed Dragonfly Screen ~ Parasound Halo C2 Pre/Pro
Earthquake Sound Cinenova Grande Amplifier ~ Crown X1000 ~ Oppo BDP-103
Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista Tube DAC ~ Monster Cable Signature Series HTPS7000
Energy Veritas 2.2i (mains) & Veritas 2.0c (center) ~ Energy RC-70 (side surrounds)
