The system should be configured based on your specific room considerations and listening position; there are no correct numbers. What you want to do is get a calibration disk and an SPL meter and adjust accordingly.

Yeah, I think so. Left front is 0db. Center, depending on the movie is -2 to +4/+6db. Right front is -10db (-8db if I have a fan on.) Surround right is -8 (-6 if I have a fan on.) Surround left is +2db. And subwoofer is usually +6db. It seems to be pretty good for me. It sure took a long time to get it set good enough.
