I have speakers which seem to be designed to interact with room modes (for some definitions of the phrase). In particular, they have side-firing 10" woofers. The installation instructions explicitly...

Panasonic's DMP-BDT330 has dual outputs and seems to be available for about $100-$130 (it's an older model, on clearance). Its replacement, this year's BDT360, does not have dual outputs. The BDT460...

Sorry, I really don't know which would be better. The cables aren't very expensive to try. Personally, I'd probably be biased toward a passive soundbar since you want to use it with a receiver.

I'm not sure what you're asking. Without a real center speaker,the receiver has to generate a phantom center channel. It doesn't matter what kind of interconnections you're using to get the audio...

I have over 2000 hours on my 3800. Your price is only slightly more than the cost of a new lamp bulb for it, so it's a reasonably good deal.

Sorry: you need to turn the subwoofer gain control way down, probably even lower than where it was originally.

"Between", not "at". Unfortunately, a value of -12dB is where Audyssey pegs on most...

The CEC specifications in v2 of the HDMI standard supposedly are much more stringent, but, like most of its provisions, are optional. *sigh*

Sorry, I know almost nothing about the audio systems in commercial cinemas.

Am I correct that the amps are located at or very close to the speakers?
