I would still go with monopole surrounds. These days movies are really making strong use of surround channels and having a more defined sound space is beneficial in my opinion. With bipoles, you...

What about starting with a pair of speakers, and then expand in the future when budget permits? If you have your heart set on something, like the 590s, then just get a pair. Later on add the center...

Your Denon has Audyssey which does all the calibration for you. Run that first, and then you can make some adjustments after.

80Hz is a good place to start with your speaker crossover, but see...

Just a quick side note, 007 Sceptre is my new surround demo movie, the helicopter scene early on is amazing.

Yeah the vents are on top, I would say it's every other movie. I can watch netflix for hours, but when I put on something that really stresses the receiver it's usually when it does it. I didn't...

It's open and isn't crammed in there, I still have about 1.5" above the unit (which probably needs more space). Unfortunately it doesn't have pre-outs so I couldn't...

Yeah that's a bit rich for my blood :D

It's not every movie, but I would say every other one it does it, more than I would like obviously. Granted it's a relatively basic unit so I guess I can't...

That might be a good option to get some fresh air in there, I do have some extra case fans laying around so I just need to figure a way to power it.

Yeah D&M is notorious for running warm, Onkyo as well. You're right they probably aren't built to last anymore, I will see if I can raise the center shelf and get some more space, but I don't know...

Audyssey sets my E56Ci at 80Hz and the towers at 60Hz. I usually bump up the towers to 80Hz as well, to give myself a bit more headroom. But as long as you don't go lower than what Audyssey sets,...

Yeah I would wager the subs are pretty close, probably within a few dB of each other with the I-12/e digging a bit deeper.

It's more of a product showcase, but they do good measurements and that's...

I think it would be worthwhile to hold off and save for a better sub. If it means waiting a month to put a little more towards it and get something like the I-12, it would be wise to do so. ID subs...

Yeah as long as its distributed evenly it should work fine. Good idea though with a sub dude between them, sounds like the right size and it should help with any rattling.

I would fashion something that only contacts the sub on the outer edges. Maybe those rubber bumpers on the edge of the MDF so you aren't sitting directly on the plexiglass. If you do just sit them...

Yeah perhaps a 100Hz crossover would work well, IIRC Audyssey sets my E5Bi at 100Hz when I place them up front.

Make sure you have the mic placed properly, though the Onkyo software isn't all that great compared to Audyssey and MCACC

I haven't seen anything, we would likely see a new tweeter and crossover, maybe they could get a bit more extension down into the low 40s. Given the new subs come in the same black ash and red burl...

Yeah you could use them for surround assuming the tweeters are high enough. I personally think the new series is a ways off so I think you made a good choice!

Sorry it's been a hassle, did you buy the sub new? I purchased a plastic cleaner on Amazon to clean it, I imagine something like that would work well to take the goo gone off.
