  • Thank you, sponger. Such detailed response, and so very appreciated! I had no idea that there was an app available for further tweaking. I'll definitely look into it. I did end up setting the crossover to 80 Hz for both the fronts and the center. I …
  • BTW, I should say, for reference, that the Pioneer Customer Service people I have dealt with (two so far) are the least friendly (bordering on the rude) that I have had the displeasure of talking to. You get the distinct impression that they're ann…

  • Ya, jooker82 is right. This is confirmed by the Pioneer Customer Service, and some good folks at AVS Forum. Since the crossover is set to 80 Hz and the speakers set to SMALL, the receiver doesn't equalize anything below that. You can get the 63 Hz b…

  • Good question, 27dnast. I am also a little puzzled over this. My x-over is set to 80 Hz, as per instructions.
  • Almadacr, Here' are some photos of my equalizer setup... Left Speaker: Center Speaker: Right Speaker: Let me know if have any suggestions. Thanks!
  • Hi kuntasensei: My center is placed on the top shelf of the Entertainment Center, about 6 inches below the panel. It's wide open on all sides. There's a bass reflex port on the back of the center channel speaker. It's about six inches off the wal…
  • Hey, Almadacr: I ended up spreading my R and L channels apart a little wider, and re-ran auto calibration. Auto calibration gave me the following numbers: L.....11' 51/2"...-2.5 dB R.....11' 5".......-3.0 dB C.....10' 7.5"....-4.0 dB SW...1…
  • Ya, Dobermann, I talked to Polk Tech and they told me that it has something to do with the 2nd and 4th order filers in the speaker. The Tech said tried hooking it up both ways and pick the configuration that produces the best (fuller) sound. I did t…
  • Thanks, Almadacr, I'll follow your instructions. I have the Speaker System set to Normal(SB/FH). Is that ok? Or, should I try a different configuration, like SB/FW?
  • Hi, Almadacr: My calibrated Channel Levels are: Left -3 dB Right -3 dB Center -4 dB Sub -12 dB Calibrated speaker distances are: Left 10' 10.5" Rright 11" Center 10' 6.5" Sub …
  • hi, nhhiep, at fist i was concerned about reversing polarity. but, in the end, i did just that at one end, and that seemed to fix the problem. so, it does look like either the receiver or the speaker was wired wrong inside.
  • Thanks, guys! I think I'll pick up the CS2 soon; unless I find a killer deal on the CSI-A4
  • Thanks, Rodeo0530, for the insight. slk55amg, speaking of matching, would the CSIA4 match my 70s? Would I be able to balance the CSIA4 against the 70s?
  • thank you folks for your responses.

  • Thanks guys! I guess, I was just wondering if I should set the speaker size in the AVR setup to SMALL or LARGE. Or, doesn't it really matter?
  • unless, of course, i can figure out how to make the phantom channel work
  • thanks 67jason. ya, newegg is a great company. in fact, i bought my current rig from them. thanks for the tip on the sale. newegg has it listed at 150 right now and that was a little steep for me. so, i'll take your advice and wait till the price dr…
  • Hi, after 2 months I'm still tweaking my AV setup. It's comprised of a Pioneer VSX-1120-k receiver, a pair of Monitor 60 Series 2 (bi-amped), and a PSW10 sub. The AVR manual said that if the speakers are THX certified then to set the speakers to "sm…
  • First of all, to all the folks who replied to my post, a heap of thanks. Also thank you for your warm welcome. Secondly, my sincere apology for not responding earlier. (I was pretty involved with some personal/family crisis.) I learned a great deal …
  • Thanks for the feedback! Any suggestions on what center channel would be a good match for my setup?
  • Thank you, guys! Will do just that.
