I'm a little closer than that, not much though. Each ear is 9 feet 4 inches from a main speaker to be exact.

I agree with Nathan, I think the 215's are better at everything - EXCEPT - for those that have a very well treated and large room. In that case you might run into limits of the 215 if you like to...

No peq I only use the dynamic eq. Hmmm something is weird. Hook them up to just your avr and see how they sound. Like Jonathan said I don't understand why the avr would shut down when you aren't...
