  1. I would love to hear why you switched. I guess RP’s are a class above the R’s could be the reason but would like to know more. I’d like to hear your thoughts on advantages of floorstanding speakers as well. If there are clear advantages over bookshelf’s even at 80/100 Hz XO and not utilizing the full range I’ll feel better about my purchase at least 🙂
  2. Ok thanks for all the input. I’ll play around with things. I read somewhere that, as a rule of thumb, the crossover should be based on the mains L/R more than the center/surround. Since the THX standard is 80Hz I’m leaving it there for now since it sounds good besides the bass being a little muddy. It’s most likely either the placement, or possibly the delays/distance setting? I couldn’t tell much of a difference with the phase switch since I was standing right by it to switch it, or since I just moved in to a new house with hardwood floor and don’t have a rug down yet it’s a little echo-y so that most likely isn’t helping either.
  3. No I wasn’t exactly sure what that was for. Still kind of a novice.

  5. Nope. All set to small with 80Hz XO now. Sounds pretty great now just a little bassy. Like a lot of constant bass coming out. The bass/treble are set to 0db. Gain halfway. When would you adjust the gain VS. when would you adjust the level of the subwoofer?
  6. I would prefer to have the towers at 80 and the rest at 100 but my AVR only lets me set one XO for all channels with one setting. That’s my dilemma. XO on the sub is turned all the way up. Gain is set halfway. The sub level is set to +4.0 db on the AVR based on the MCACC calibration
  7. That’s what my knob settings on the sub are already. XO set to 80Hz for everything (I only see one XO setting for all speakers/sub) you think the center/surrounds are ok at 80Hz since the frequency reaponse for them is 83Hz - 24kHz? The MCACC suggested 100 but I hate setting it at 100 since I have the towers that can handle more than the center/surround at 38Hz.
  8. I was going to try XO at 80 but wasn’t sure since it was so close to the low range of the center and the surrounds. By volume on the sub, are you referring to the gain knob on the back of the sub? and the XO knob on the sub all the way up? i don’t see much under MCACC EQ besides frequency response for each channel and adjustments between +-12 db for different frequencies. I’ll have to read up a bit on that before changing anything. Everything looks to be 0db. is there a good way to test after making these changes if I’m cutting anything off or certain audio files I can play to test the setup?
  9. I just purchased the speakers mentioned in the title for a home theater setup. I will be using it mainly for movies/games and have a pioneer elite VSX-LX302 receiver. i ran through the MCACC calibration and it set my front R-26F to large and others to small with 100Hz crossover. It seems a little heavy on the bass with this setting and thought I would change the R-26F to small but I can only set one crossover setting for all speakers. If I keep it at 100Hz, is it even worth having the floor standing R-26F speakers? Or would I have been better suited with bookshelf speakers? Any help with crossover or bass knob settings would be greatly appreciated! R-26F = 38Hz - 24kHz R-25C = 82Hz - 24kHz R-14S = 83Hz - 24kHz R-12SW = 29Hz - 120Hz
