I have had the Casablanca III for several years, but do to very bad back propblems for the last 6-8 yrs and I have had not been able to spend alot of time actuallty tweaking my system. I am currently just renting in San Francisco and my HT room is on the small side, about 12'wx15'x8'. We do plan on buying a home sometimeover the next 6 months, but int he mean time I am trying to tweak my system bitmore and I having a hard time trying to figure out which crossover to use and also where to cross them over and at what slope. I am using the Dynaudio Contour 1.3SE's L,R, Contour 2.1 C, B&W DS 6 dipole for surround and a Rel Storm III sub. I am currently using Butterworth for all speakers and the LCR are using Full w/LOP. HP 63hz, HP Slope: 24db, LP: 63hz, LP Slope: 24db, LP Phase: 180. For the surrounds I am using Butterworth set to crossover, HP: 125hz, HP Slop: 24, LP: 63, LP Slope 24, LP Phase 180, Sub 1, crossover. I have DVE and HD DVE and when I play the LF sweep I notice that it is stronger when it is coming from just the right speaker and weakest when the signal is sent to all speakers, is this normal? What is the easiest and quickest way to switch to differenct crossover settings on the fly? Do I just map the same cd player to several different inputs? Also I am trying to figure out the best way to be able to easily compare the sound of analog direct using the analog out to that of the digital out from cd player using stero? Should I just put that cd player on two different inputs?
