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.

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