  1. Have you placed your L/R fronts 90degrees to the sides of your seating area?
  2. Hi 1) If you play michael jackson in zone2/frontB, that music cannot be emitted from any other speakers than the ones assigned to zone2/frontB. I think the idea with zone2/frontB is that you can play sound from two different sources simultaneously, and on the same system, just different speakers in that same system. So for example, i can have michael jackson playing from your fronts and beethoven from the rears at the same time. When in "zone 2 mode", you go from having 7.x to having 5.x + 2.0. So what would be your rear surrounds become your front b speakers. 2) Since zone2/frontB will limit you to stereo, there wont be a need for a room correction software. Because of that, i dont think you can set audyssey for zone1 and zone2, but i might be wrong. Dont really know. just assuming
  3. Hi 1. Id still go for only one set of speakers for surround L&R. If youre concerned the surround speaker placement wont work for both rows, dont be. I mean, i havent exactly done the math, but side surround placement can be offset by a small angle infront or behind the listener. Place the side surrounds smack inbetween the two rows and im mostly sure youll be golden. If you really want a second set, id suggest having them set up as front wides. Im not too sure if there would be space for front wides in a 20x20 room but im gonna leave that up for you to decide. Wether or not having two sets of speakers for side surrounds would compete or complement each other, im not sure, never tried it myself. 2. In my opinion, no. The 8000s are either dipole/bipole speakers and if i remember correctly, these are supposed to be positioned directly to the side of the listener when used as side surrounds. Because of this, and the fact that you have two rows, you wont be able to accommodate both rows sufficiently. 3. If the direction of the 5002S tweeter can be adjusted, id go for them. If not, then my initial thought would be that either would work as long as your positioning on the roof is perfect. The surrounds would not be wasted in a setup consisting of 4 atmos speakers. The surrounds are ear level speakers and the surrounds are overhead speakers. 4. I dont know if the THX ceiling speakers perform better than for example a RP ceiling speaker, but i would guess they do even though sound is subjective. However, I would recommend having THX speakers for in-ceiling if the rest of your setup also consist of THX speakers. That way, it all looks good aesthetically speaking and you eliminate any chance of different tweeters emitting different sounding audio.bv 5. Yup, pretty much. Dont get caught up in power ratings for speakers, amps and receivers. Most of it is nominal and or false. Just know that any choice you make is safe. REALLY hard to go wrong tbh. 6. Your choice! Either works. If any of the sentences above dont make sense, than please tell me so i can try to rephrase. I wrote this in one go and in the end im not even sure what i wrote... lol
  4. No wisdom here it would seem
  5. Hi Sorry no one have answered you before now. Setting crossovers is kinda an experimental thing and wil be different for some because it is somewhat subjective. However, a safe bet would be to set them the same as your other surrounds. If you`d like some benchmark to go from, then it might comfort you to know that most people would set them between 80 and 120
  6. Hi Sir Im just going to go straight into it. First off, your speaker placement is wrong. The seating also. In addition, the choice of type speakers here for the different channels are sadly wrong. There are certain channels that are initially meant to be ear level and some ovehead. Ear level: FL/FR, Center, SL/SR, SBL, SBR Overhead: FHL/FHR, RHL/RHR Of course there are expections to this in that you can mount a center above a tv and have it firing downwards and SL/SR can sometimes be ceiling mounted as long as they are wide out and firing down to the side of the viewers ear. Same principal for ceiling mounted SBL/SBR. Thing is, these expections go out the window when you also implement a height stage. When you do so, the channels that are initially meant to be ear level has to stay that way. Sorry if the text above was taken harshly. On to the advise part then! The main viewing position, be it the sofa or your recliner, should be placed as best as possible smack inbetween Center and SBL/SBR. Tilt your center upwards with for example a door stop so it fires straight for your nose. Judging from your picture here, you should be able to have ear level SBL/SBR speakers, so please go for that. Somewhere above your SBL/SBR should the RHL/RHR be placed. Directly to the sides of the couch would be the best placement for ear level SL/SR with the accepted 20 degree offset infront/behind the couch from the viewers perspective. In addition, all speakers should be angled to your preferred spot on the couch. If your speakers are ported, have about 10 inches of space from the back of your speaker and any wall behind it. Your FL/FR, Center and FHL/FHR are fine as long as those FHL/FHR are angled properly. Depending on your room, you might want to get a second sub. I realise that i basically just advised you to go out and buy even more speakers, rendering some of those you already have obsolete, buy more, longer and possibly thicker cables, and leave your roof with holes. I dont know if you got any advise from someone before buying and installing this setup. But its just sad and regretable when i think about your money being spent so poorly.
  7. Dont think so mate, sorry. From what i can see from pictures, the sub doesnt seem to have any gain knob on the back. However strictly speaking, an app would still be a controller, just a software-based one. I think the only way for you to adjust levels on an R-4B would be to have it playing through your phone or pc where you can adjust the sound directly. But since the sub is part of a soundbar setup, does it come with a controller that can adjust gain? I know you asked for a way to adjust without using a controller, but i dont think you can avoid this since this setup is "active" and not passive.
  8. For dual 12" subs, somewhere around 2000 cft
  9. What you say in your first paragraph there is not a good idea. Its a GREAT idea! Pretty solid speaker placement imo, however sub placement is really hard to tell if its done correctly or not. Guess you just have to do some experimenting on that front. Would also recommend a second sub. Always good to cover windows with thicker than usual curtains. Seems like youve given this potential setup some good consideration. So all in all, youve done great.
  10. Hi Never had that problem, however it seems youve already isolated the problem. Have you tried troubleshooting your apc? How often did this happen?
  11. If im not mistaken, i think the reference line and rp line have different tweeters. So you might notice some difference there, but if the tweeters are the same, then there shouldnt be any problems mixing the different lines.
  12. Have you tried experimenting with the db lvl settings? I think you'll find your towers have more of a punch than what you have up to now experienced.
  13. If the plan is to upgrade the fronts anyways, then I'd go for that RC62II. If not, then the r-25c is the one
