I don't think it can. At least mine doesn't by default and I've never seen anything indicating that there may be a setting to do so.

In the original post you asked if you should divert your funds elsewhere. I'm curious about this aspect of the decision. Are there any deficiencies you would like to address. I know in my theater I...

Honestly, it would be hard to beat the Sonos play1 for low volume background music. We have a pair and they fill my kitchen and living room impressively.

If it's not obvious to you what center to keep then I'd definitely keep the matched set. Some day you might want to sell the set and upgrade. Having them matched will make it easier to sell.

You guys are making me laugh. It would be impossible to have a phase shift of 180 over a broad range of frequency. That angle is based on the period of the frequency so different frequencies would...

I increased distance on the sub by 5 feet.

When I swapped phase first and looked for a null it was 1 foot difference than when I left phase alone and looked for peak.

So do I want to reverse the phase on the sub, look for a null, and then return the phase to zero? What is the advantage of looking for a null instead of a peak?

It sounds like you are saying I...

One thing to check, do your towers have binding posts? If they were out you might only be connected to the high pass side. I only hope your issue is something this simple.
