This is my 1st post to the forum, seems like the best one on the net! I've just recently majorly upgraded my HT setup to a dream system, I sold my Marantz 6400 receiver for the new Masters series M25 amp and M15 prepro. I also upgraded the Boston acoustics speakers that I had for the new Mirage OMD-28 mains and C2 centre channel. I have a Mirage BPS 400 as the sub and Mirage FX's as surround channels. The old BA VR-950's are used a the rear surrounds now.
The setup has a clarity and openness of soundstage that is awesome but I'm wondering if I have selected the correct parmeters in the M15 audio menus...
My feeling is that since the OMD 28's are capable of excellent bass that I should give them more than the standard 80hz and up THX standard setting for small speaker setting..
Heres what the M15 menu gives as selectable audio parameters:
LFE level: 0.0 db (I left it alone since I adjust on the subwoofer vol)
Enchanced Bass: says that when left on that it allows full range operation of speakers so I left it on
THX auto: left it off so that the DTS and Dolby formats do not pass through the Thx decoder
Front L&R --set to large
Center-- set to large
surround-- set to 2 small
Subwoofer-- can choose either 1 small, 2 small(THX), 1 large, 2 large or none, I chose 1 large
surr back-- set to 2 large (the BA 950's go down to 45hz)
LR + LFE Xover-- can choose form 60-120hz in 10hz increments, I chose 60hz
centre Xover-- same range of freqs I chose 60 since the C2 is a BIG centre speaker
Surr Xover-- I chose 80 since they are pretty small
Bass filter-- Thx, or 2nd order (not sure what this means)
next I set the speaker distances and left the speaker levels neutral for now 0 db
did I set it up right? Bass response seems to still be limited to my ears in the OMD 28 mains.....
