Therefore, I do not know what to believe. i will try experiment with placement a bit soon, but thought i would gain some insight while I'm away from home. Also, in a 5.1 setup is it possible to place the surrounds behind rather than on the sides? Right now I have them directly behind the couch but spread out and angled towards the center. I am considering putting them in a shelf on the wall behind the couch.
Hi guys,.. another question I have relates specifically to my C350. I find that the audio for dialogue sounds a bit .. tinny/off/strange I don't know how to describe it properly. I've tried raising the levels for the center so that it stands out more, but it still has a strangeness to it. My current setup uses:
The 362s are about 8 feet apart, 8 feet from the center of the couch and toed in a bit. The C350 is sitting inside a flexi-rack I built and is angled upwards slightly towards the middle of the couch (it sits just below the tv and receive sits on the shelf below that).
The shelf is 20" deep and is about 3" from the wall. I've pulled the c350 out about 1-2 inches from the shelf and tried putting some padding about 5 inches behind it. I can provide a photo if that helps.
I've tried adjusting the settings, running audyssey etc. For now, I've decided to just to set the speakers on the receiver by their distance, using an App on my phone to get the levels the same (though I made the center louder) and set the towers at full range, center at 80 and surrounds.. i think 80 as well.
EDIT please bear in mind that I currently am not running a sub, as I gave it away. My attempts at fixing with audyssey were after the sub was gone. It's a new flexi rack, as i previously had the c350 sitting up on top of another bench at the same level as the tv.
