Default SONY STR-DG820, how to level up sound for back speakers?

I bought a new set of speakers to go with my SONY STR-DG820 but they are way much bigger than the previous ones so i can't put them on stands right behind my head. So now they are further back behind me and i need to level up the sound of the back speakers but i can't find the option.

If anyone knows exatly how to do it, please post it cause now i dont have a good surround effect coming from the back, sound is too low.

Thanks

If you added new speakers you should do the auto cal again.

But you just go into the amp menu with the remote. Then on the 820 scroll to speakers and look for levels using the buttons....In those menus you can change the speaker levels.

Your speakers should have come with a little microphone, size of a silver dollar, about 5/8" tall, place that at about ear level, on your remote you their should be a ACAL or Auto Cal button, or you can go into the menu and under system(its been a while) or at the very end of scrolling down it will have auto calibrate, and then you click the enter button on your remote. It will count down a few seconds and then you will hear sound coming out of the speakers, should take about 30 seconds.

Otherwise, you will need to set the distance and decible (dB) level yourself under the speakers option on the menu. Get out your owners manual and have fun.

you don't need to have a sub for auto cal.

Well everytime i use auto cal, i get error 33 right after the first set of sound, base on the manual, error 33 is when a speaker is missing. All 5 are there and working exept the subwoofer

Make sure the auto-cal mic is plugged all the way in. I though it was when I did it the other day, but I had to push a little harder than I would have thought.

No silver (plug-in piece) should be showing. Then try again. Good Luck!


Also to just increase the back speaker level do the following:

press MENU
scroll down just once to see <LEVEL>
press -right once
scroll down till you see SL Level (Surround Left)
press- right-increase a few db's

Then repeat the above and go to SR level (Surround Right)
adjust the db's the same.

Hope this helps.

Is there anything in the way of the mic when you run auto cal? you need to have the path from the speaker to the mic clear. move chairs, plants, lamps, etc. at least I had too.

No, all of my rears are at various heights due to placement issues.
