I'm in Uvalde and I love the Grands, you're welcome to come out if you want to make the trip.

I have the Aperion Grand Center channel speaker and last night I noticed something. I was watching a movie and during a moment of intense screaming (still dialogue) the speaker didnt sound right. Im not an audiophile, but it seemed as the highs during screaming were being clipped? The volume was not turned up very loud. I am using a DenonX1000 as my AVR. Is this a speaker issue, or maybe the audio compression from my cable provider? Thanks

Make sure you have the volume limiter off and the dynamic range limiter set to off in your Denon, both of these can cause what you are experiencing. Also, depending on what was on, your AVR could have been clipping as well. But, if you don't hear that on regular DVD's and Blu-Rays, then I would suspect the cable provider.

I also have the X1000 and I'm wondering how you put the volume limiter and dynamic range limiter to off? I'm not by a manual or my setup right now, but would love to have a look at this when I get home without having to dig through the manual if you already know it. I'd much rather play with my little 1 year old

Thanks for the help!

EDIT: Realized you're talking about the maximum volume (volume limiter). I've set it at 0dB, but if setting that to something instead of OFF will mess with the sound then I'll turn it off. I just worry since my daughter likes to grab the remotes and I can just see her holding down the volume UP button lol

For the dynamic range...is that the setting in the Surround Parameters? I don't have any of that on so I should be okay there. Just using Audyssey w/ Dynamic EQ, but that's it.

On a side note, the remote for this X1000 sucks. The one for my 1712 is soo much better
