After reading all the great reviews from not only this site but other sites too, I finally bought People's choice package, front Mod2 and surround mod1's
I bought new receiver Onkyo Tx-SR606 from Amazon. Using HDMI cables for TV, Satellite receiver to the Onkyo. DVD is connected using component for video and RCA for audio.
I have set the crossover's at 150Hz and +1 DB's for all speakers. My room is about 15 X 13, but is open to breakfast area and kitchen. So overall the room size is 32 X 13. Surrounds are placed at the end of the living room.
so with that setup, when I turned on the system, the sound was okay, I was not completely blown away. The surround sound speakers are very weak. Even other speakers I have to set my volume too high like 40 and subwoofer volume between 1/2 and 3/4th to get some effect. Well with the receiver I spent about 1500, and I am not too happy with the sound experience. I am trying to breakin the speakers, I have been using it for a week. I will use for another week and send it back if it does not improve.
Please let me know if I am doing anything wrong in the setup.
