I have ported front, center and surround back speakers ( the older grey Klipsch bookshelf) and non ported surround speakers ( Cambridge Soundworks S300 ). Will I experience any issues or any cancelation problems. If so can adjusting crossover settings do anything. I v a sub xover set at 80hz. My Denon calibration has them all set differently. Next question regarding the S300 that have 3 settings Bipole, Dipole and direct. When I ran room calibration it showed out of phase when I set them to bipole and in phase when I set them to direct. I haven’t done the calibration when set in dipole. Thoughts?

I would run them in Direct mode. Di/Bi-pole speakers really don't work as well with current, discrete channel soundtracks as they did with old Pro-Logic ones.
