I have the following setup
Pioneer VSX 919
Bluray Panasonic DMP-BDT220
Infinity Primus L/R P163 (this has only Low and High Drivers)
Infinity Primus PC351 (this actually has a Low, Mid and High Drivers)
Infinity Primus Surround L/R P143 (this has only Low and High Drivers)
Sub - Polk PSW250
I have run MCACC and have been through the Official MCACC thread. In short, my SP settings are set to SMALL for the speakers and Sub crossover is at 100Mhz
I have tried several setups, Pure, Direct, ALC, Auto Surround and many of the Surround Formats. I have upped the level of just the Center.
In the end, I still have to ride the volume button during movies (upping the volume during quiet scenes, lowering the volume during loud scenes)
This is frustrating and I see that many people have this issue with a multitude of setups.
However, based on my equipment. Is it possible that because my Center being a larger one that has Low, Mid and High, that by setting my speakers to SMALL, I am lowering the range it is to produce? NOTE: I am not aware of my AVR allowing me to set my Center to LARGE with all else to SMALL. If memory serves me correctly, once setting something to SMALL, all L/R and Center goes to SMALL.
This is frustrating and I dont think we should have to go through a lot to get good sound.
