The setting that gives me personally the best volume or room filling sound for listening to music is multi channel stereo selection. but sucks the new def tech 350 wont come on.???

Audio should be passed to either the Front Height or the Front Wide when Multi CH Stereo is selected. The "Speaker Select" setting (p. 114 Owner's manual) must be set to either Front Height or Front Wide if you want audio to come from those speakers.

Why not let your own ears be the judge. Cycle Audyssey ON and OFF and select the one you prefer the best. You can also select "Bypass Front L/R" if you prefer as well.

I re-ran Audyssey a couple of times on my 5.1 system and Audyssey is setting my centre channel to crossover @ 40 hz while my full-size towers are crossing at 60 hz. This happens when I am using the SR7007's internal amps or when I use an external amp for the R, C, and L speakers. After saving the settings, I raise the crossover to 80 for all speakers except for my surrounds which I leave at 90 hz. The towers are Energy RC-70 and the centre is an Energy RC-LCR.

Should I try to rearrange the furniture or speakers to get Audyssey to raiser the crossover from 40 to 60 or 80?

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

If your center speaker is ideally positioned (ie. angled up towards your head and not your knees) there's nothing further to adjust.

The centre is on my tv stand, pulled out so it overhangs the shelf, angled up towards mlp. It sounds fine so I'll just leave it as is. Thanks.

I did exactly that. Sr8002. To sr7007. Downgraded power. Uprgraded features
Unlike you. I was unhappy with the sr8002. It never sounded quite right, most likely due to something i did. But the gui was prctically useless. For 2 grand. Eh.
The sr7007 blows it out of the water. Tho with 4 ohm kefs. I felt i needed an amp for the fronts.
I purchased both the sr7007 and mm7025 for half what the sr8002 cost me
Granted. Its years since either was new

Sub Levels

I did set up FL/FR to small/80Hz when calibrating with Audyssey. Do I need to do this again in manual set up to be applicable to stereo play back?
Thanks!!
Ok find out my bass problem. To get a sub level of -6.5 after Audyssey calibration I have to lower the sub gain to the 8:30pm position, barely above the lowest position. I didn’t try to get the sub level to +/-3 been so low already. The sub comes on during movies. During 2 channel music it also comes on since I have the mains set as small and 80 Hz crossover, but can hardly hear the bass. Is there a way to manage this besides turning the sub gain up during 2 channel playback? That’s what I did so, by changing the sub gain after Audyssey calibration will cancel out the calibration? Even if I turn it back to 8:30pm position? I kind like to hear more bass that what I hear after Audyssey calibration. Anybody had the same experience?

Leave the sub gain at the 8:30 position. After running Audyssey, many owners prefer to raise the Subwoofer Level (on the AVR) up about +5db, so in your case, raise it to -1.5db.
