Just recently upgraded my tv and receiver

My current set up:

TV- PN60E8000
Reciever Denon AVR-1913
Subwoofer: Premier Acoustic PA-120
Floorstanding: Polk RTI8
Center: Polk CSI3
Surrounds: Polk RC80i ( in ceiling speakers)
5.1 setup

I went thru all the guides and read as many posts as a i could. Just want to make sure i got all the settings right.

Speakers/ Bass:
Subwoofer Mode- LFE
LPF for LFE- 120Hz

Speakers/Crossovers:
Crossover- 80hz

Speakers/Speaker Config:
Front- Small
Center- Small
Subwoofer- Yes
Surround- Small

Inputs/Input Select
Input Mode- Auto
Decode Mode- Auto

Video/Output Settings:
Video Mode- Auto
Video Conversion- On
i/p Scaler- Analog
Resolution (analog)- Auto
Aspect Ratio- 16:9

Video/HDMI Setup:
Auto Lip Sync- On
HDMI Audio out- AVR
HDMI Control- Off

Audio/Audyssey:
MultiEQ- Audyssey
Dynamic EQ- On
Reference Level Offset- 0dB
Dynamic Volume- Medium

Audio/Surround Parameter
Cinema EQ- Off
Dynamic Compression- Off
Low Frequency Effects- 0dB

This is my first time owning a Denon and im loving it. The sound is more crisp and clearer than i remember from my onkyo receivers.

Nothing out of the ordinary for those settings although did the AVR set the crossovers for every speaker to 80Hz or did you lower them to 80Hz? If the latter, leave them where the AVR set them, only raising any that were set <80Hz up to 80Hz. Also if you want to use the video upscaling in the AVR you will likely want to change the "i/p Scaler" to "Analog + HDMI".

For more helpful information review posts #3-6 in the 2012 Denon AVR-XX13 Owner's thread linked in my sig.

I dont remember what crossover it automatically assigned to the speakers but i do remember they were all set to large. I adjusted them to 80hz and Small per to what i have been reading in the forums. Should i just leave it or run the setup again?

I will make the change on the other setting, thanks for replying

Also, i thought i posted this under the 2012 Denon AVR-XX13 Owner's thread but i must have screwed up and created a new 1

Just leave it. No reason to run Audyssey again unless you change speaker locations, add more speakers, or move furniture in the room.
