I find action and horror movies to use the surrounds more than typical comedies/dramas. There are exceptions with the latter, but the former usually doesn't waste the surrounds. Also, when music in...

I hope that isn't the case... I want the Sony Cores to match well with the SUB-1200.

After the subwoofer, the only thing left to upgrade will be the surrounds but I'll need something half the size...

Can you explain how YPAO decides the crossover?...

Can you explain how YPAO decides the crossover? Is it based on all 5 speakers aside from the subwoofer or just the fronts? And if it's just the fronts, is it all 3 or just the left and right?
