I have Silver In Walls for the L/R Surrounds and Bronze In Walls for the Back Surrounds.
Curious if you ever tried to change the crossovers in your surrounds and if so were you successful?

Installing two slimsubs and a RackAmp 700 in a family room, one on right front wall and the other opposite rear wall.

Any best practices or recommendations for set-up?

If it's not too late, I would put them in diagonally opposing corners.

Dawn has given you the best succinct approach. You want them to be a mirror image of each other in the room -- remembering that the room is not just the same where you watch TV but the whole physical space (which might include a kitchen and dining area, in a great room, for example).

Yes they are diagonal, I guess that's what I meant by opposite.

I'm more concerned with amp aetup, never been a whiz with subs typically just let the AVR set them up. Seems like setting the subs up this way requires more work.

Thanks for the links!

I've been doing more and more 2 channel listening recently and was curious of the differences between the silver lcr's and silver monitors? If anyone has heard both and would like to share their impressions I would appreciate it.

Can the monitors really be used effectively without a sub for music (moderate to loud levels) because the lcr's 100% need one?

Would having the l/r speakers as monitors and the center as an lcr be very noticeable during movies? My front stage is behind an AT screen if that is of concern.

I don't have the room for a dedicated 2 channel setup so I need to make the space I have as effective as possible, thanks!

Audio: Emotiva XMC-1 Processor / Emotiva XPA-7 Gen 3 amp
Speakers: Triad Silver LCR (5), Triad Bronze LCR (2 rear), SVS PB13 Ultra sub
Video: Epson 5025 projector / Darbee Darblet / 98" 16:9 Seymour AV XD screen
Sources: Oppo 103 / Dish / Apple TV / Audio Technica LP-120 TT

Both Gold and Silver Monitors can be used full range without a sub, but they do sound best with a sub. However, before committing to purchasing a sub you should try them without one to see how you like them.

One thing I would definitely not do is mix a Silver LCR with the Silver Monitors. They sound too different. Keep all front speakers the same. For surround and Atmos channels you can use Silver MiniMonitors. See my speaker matching chart here.

You should have your dealer change the setting. Or go to these RackAmpinstructions.
