What receiver is it you're using?? I just go by ear but I do consult the owners manual if they offer tips.
For the most part it depends on room size/shape, and acoustics within the room to determine what delay is needed (if any).
Most manuals say its about 1 millisecond per foot.
Think of a circle around your primary listening position,
that intersects your main speakers. Then add the required delay
to 'push' the center back to the circle.
The rears are more subjective. If they fall inside the circle, add
delay. If they are far outside the circle, you may need
to add delay to the mains and draw another circle.
For most systems:
Mains and rears - place on a circle around the listening
position. Then use delays to 'push' the center back to the
For Yamaha - If the rears are outside the circle, move the
mains. Remember the radius of the cicle is determined by the
main placement. You cannot correct for speakers that fall
outside the circle. You can correct for speakers that are
inside the circle.
Sub - Start with a corner placement.
