    I was reading on a site (that I have since lost) on how to configure the delay of sound when going from front to rear >>> like for example if a plane in a movie was flying overhead...

    Does anyone have a formula they use for setting this up on your receiver???

    Brad, If your receiver/amp is similar to mine, here's how I did it. It's really built in. scroll through your setup system on your rec. you should see fronts, center, and surrounds with a number next to them. You put in the distance each is from the main listening area and the receiver does the delay configuration for you. Good luck!

    Brad: Man, you're on a fast learning curve here on the forum [​IMG]
    This can be complex. Some receivers allow you to set surround speaker delays using feet distance, which translates to the proper millisecond (ms) delay. Others like my Yamaha offer only center channel delay for DD/DTS playback (plus a more complicated rear spkr delay for individual DSP modes -- right now I'm leaving factory presets).
