I am finally getting to set up my 5.1 system. The front speakers are SDA SRS 1.2s powered by a Harmon Kardon Citatoin @ 200 W per side, The rears are SDA SRS 2.3s powered by a Harmon Kardon Citation @ 150 W per side and the center is a CS400 powered by a McIntosh 250 bridged to 100 W. I thought I would bi-wire all speakers. This is my first theater system so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Phil

    Get an AVIA calibration DVD, too. It's got one of the best simple setup and calibration routines (easy to follow, walks you right thru it) I've ever seen. For a basic question like speaker setup, it rocks. Check the Club Polk Webstore for it.

    You will probably want a Radio Shack SPL meter to go with that Avia disc. The analog version is ~$35.

    They are in Colorado now and they do like the climate.

    Thanks, Phil
