my rig and i'm a complete newbie: Kardon 325 pioneer 463A DvD JBL N24 - surround JBL N26 - back JBL N38II - front Ok, my room is set up very BAD and there is nothing i can do (girlfriend is the boss). In my sitting position my SURROUND RIGHT is 3 feet away. My SURROUND LEFT is 7 feet away. This makes for BAD surround and i can hardly hear the surround at all. On my receiver i have to choose how far away my speakers are....so what should i pick since they are not the same distance? I think i have it set to 5 feet right now. Also i need to choose how far away the speakers are with my DvD player....how many feet should i say? Should i turn up my SURROUND LEFT a few DB's so i can hear it? I can barely hear any surround from it at the moment. I can't hear very much coming from my SURROUND RIGHT either though...even though its so close. Should i mabye also turn the right up if i have to do the left? All 7 speakers are set to 75DB with the new video essentials. Sorry if this confusing, i really need some help and suggestions/tips. Thanks all in advance.
