Default Re: New to the Obsession

Its obvious that you and I have something in common; Our listening space is horizontally challenged. I would, at the very least, move the front pair of speakers so that the front edges are no less than flush with the front of your cabinetry. Take the advice given elsewhere in this post and purchase a Radio Shack analog SPL meter. A visit to Chesky Records at www.Chesky.com to purchase the Ultimate DVD Surround Sound Sampler and 5.1 Set Up Disc will help you feel as though you've got your money's worth out of the SPL meter. There is a lot of information on this DVD in plain terms that we mortals can understand which will definitely add to your understanding and enjoyment of this curse/hobby. The 5.1 Set Up section of the DVD will help you overcome your center channel's weakness.

Remember, its not the destination, its the getting there wherein the fun lies.

I moved the front speakers out to the corners of the room and toed them in a bit to point to the listener. Everything is also wired independantly now as well. After playing around with my old center, I decided to pick up a Paradigm to get better voice levels. With the speakers spread out, speaker levels tweaked, and new center, it sounds much better.

Quick question. I picked up a sub wire when I got home, before looking at the back of the actual sub. Turns out it only has the red white RCA connects. I currently have it wired from the sub preout on my reciever to only one of the RCA connects. Is there a better way of hooking that up?

Thanks for the link to Chesky, Ill check it out.

Generally you only need one RCA to your sub for HT.

Does it matter which RCA I hook up to on the sub? The L or R?

Depends on the subwoofer but generally it is the left channel. Check your manual.
