I'm not sure he can set a separate crossover for the center but it actually looks like a 120hz crossover is needed for the SuperZeros.

EDIT: he has to use a global crossover as per page 82 of the manual.

I didn't realize you already had a sub.

But if you didn't know how to set the crossovers you will need to set the receiver so that it knows you have the sub in play, set the other speakers to "small," and use a 110hz or higher crossover.

I linked the manual for your reference above.

My mistake on your having the Superzeros up front.

80hz and "small" should be fine as should the sub until you have the $700 it takes to upgrade in Canada!

Place the sub near the front three.
this ..100 hz is about perfect , i think...

Typically the L/R are going to be an extra foot or two farther away from the main listening position than the center to begin with, so if the center happens to be both high sensitivity and tonally more on the "bright" side then a greater level adjustment would be just the ticket.
ace54 and Lp85253 like this.

~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
