If you are comparing movies then yes, you need to run the same levels but why do we have HT's? We can adjust levels anyway we prefer. So when many say X-men sucks I say why not turn up the bass and...

Oh btw, you still need a sub to hit 115 dBs with full range towers. Some AVR's will route bass or LFE from subs to mains which means your mains better be heavy duty!

I figured that much, the XXX is really an IB driver anyways! IB drivers tend to not have the upper end like the LMS 5400.

I can't really use my thick speaker wire to the receiver, not enough room. The banana plugs really make it easy. It would not use them if they fit.
