Gents, I come to you -- the experts -- with some questions. Some are Pioneer receiver related, but I think in one way or another, most of them come back to Polk Audio stuff.
I sold my Pioneer Elite VSX-50 tonight. I had it and my Pioneer SC-1522-K (new in box) both listed on Craigslist. The 50 sold first, so I guess that means I'll have to open the 1522 (darn!).
Got it hooked up to my 70 IIs / CS2 II / 40 IIs...it is 99% of the way set up...but a few Q's.
What would you set the speaker crossover to in the receiver menu? 80? 100? I did 80. I assume that is correct.
When it asks my speaker size, "small" and "large" are my options. Technically, they aren't small, but I've heard setting them as such will delegate more of the low frequencies to the sub. Do you agree with that approach?
Along those lines, there was an option to set my subwoofer to "yes/no/plus". I have one (BIC F-12), so I know my options are "yes" or "plus". "Plus", as I understand it, will make my subwoofer carry the majority of the low-end workload. It is currently what I set it to so that the Monitor 70 II's could focus more on the other stuff. Or should I just set it to "yes" and let my 70s do at least a little bit of the work?
Non-Polk Audio related Q. The receiver is 9.2, but I only see one subwoofer output -- the black one on the left third of the black panel as seen below.
Do you just run some kind of splitter cable? I know...complete noob question.
That's not the subwoofer output you need for the MAIN ZONE, that's for ZONE 2. Your 1522 has two subwoofer outputs on the PREOUT section. They are labeled as SUBWOOFER 1 and 2. Look at the picture below in the yellow box:
