1. Yes, I did run Audyssey. It set my front speakers to large (they are sony 4 ways). I went in to manual and changed them to small with 80hz crossovers but still no luck. When I go into the General and then Information while playing, the audio still shows as stereo 2.0...any other ideas?
2. They are the stick variety that I use almost evrywhere else. Not sure if they require additional power.
