Few more questions:

On my subwoofer setting, I can either choose "normal" or "SW+". What is the difference?

On the crossover setting, I set mine to 80hz, judging by my speakers, is that right?

And also, what does distance affect? I measured everything from the center of the setup, did I do this right? It turned out like this: FL - 6 ft, C- 6ft, FR - 6ft, SR - 6ft, SL - 6ft, SW - 8ft.

It's programming delay. Sound takes time, even if it's only a few milliseconds to reach you, and delay can throw off lipsync with the movie. Distance lets your reciever calculate how long that delay should be so everything arrives whhen it's supposed to.

I leave mine set to large all the time. The bass seems to be a little tighter and less muddy when the towers handle the bass on anything above 50hz. Works great on BD's and especially sat. broadcasts, which tend to sound terrible most of the time anyway. The db level is too inconsistant on sat. broadcasts. I don't like the sub handeling those lower frequencies.

it sounds like youve got some sort of pioneer receiver (those are the only ones ive had with subwoofer +). with the sub+ on it will send all of the bass to the sub even if you have your fronts set on large, but it will also send it to your fronts at the same time. it works pretty good for stereo applications such as a cd. if your just sending it to your front 2 speakers (stereo) and you lack the bass out of those, just turn it to sub+ and it will send the bass to your sub kind of like having a 2.1 setup. hope this helps, im not the best at explaining things.

Surrounds should always be set to small for movies, very little low frequency material in surround channels, i run large standmounts that are good down to the high 40's and i still run them small.

first off, whats your receiver?

yes your speaker crossover setting seems to be correct.

from what i know, if your reciever is a pioneer, it would output bass continuously, thus making it 'hotter' so to speak. this only works if you have your Front speakers set to LARGE. i am of course referring to your 'normal vs sw+) question

distance normally refers to the delay that you need to calibrate. hmm. to make it simpler, you want a gun's sound come from your fronts to your surrounds, in a decent amount of time. you dont want it to 'jump' quickly from one end to the other, to create a sense of true surround...

kefferhead,

go ahead and use small settings, and if ever just have it set as close as possible to your current fronts. if it has individual settings, go 100 if ever.
