I just finished reading the entire thread and it was packed full of helpful information! Thank you to everyone in here who has contributed! I've been getting into home theater and audio for the last couple years but I feel very much like a novice. Most of my equipment was gifted to me (very kind and very wealthy brother-in-law). My current setup is listed at the bottom.
I have a couple things that I'd like some help with:
1)My fronts and center all have separate LFE inputs as well as my sub. I'm running Sub 1 out to my Martin Logan, and then using a Y cable to split the Sub 2 out to the fronts. Then in my settings I have all my speakers set to small. I need some confirmation that this configuration makes sense and is making good use of my system. (until recently I had fronts/center set to large. I'm SO glad this thread suggested changing them because it sounds much better now!)
2)My second question is in regards to the center speaker LFE. Someone from Magnolia suggested going from the Center pre-out to the center LFE. The advice I get from BB tends to be hit or miss so I'm sure someone here has better insight. Along those lines, is it possible (although not reasonable) to hook up the pre-outs to an amp for a set of fronts (for example) while also using the SC to power a separate set of fronts, or is the SC exclusive between where its sending the signal?
Thanks for all the helpful posts in here! I'm sure I will have more questions in the future so this won't be the last time you hear from me!
