    I have had everything setup for about a month now and need just a little more help in calibrating the system.

    VR-507

    First off i have the JBL N26's (fronts) set to normal

    N24 - on

    Ncenter- on

    I have the

    FrontR set to + 1db

    FrontL- 0db

    Surround left - +1db

    Surround Right - +2db

    Center - 0db

    Sub - -2db

    On the back of the Sawm-40 sub, the knobs are

    Bass Level - 1/2 way

    Cut off Frequency - 170 hz all the way up

    (is this good settings for the sub or is the Cut off frequecy to high? Also what is LFE? Is that the cut off frequency?)

    Lastley, i usually watch a movie at -26 to -30db (76-70db)

    Is this to high and can i harm my speakers with this volume

    Overall how does my setup numbers look. Please tell me is i need to change things, and if I missed seting something up on the reciever

    Al speakers are using monster cable 16guage Time winded wire. Sub is using monster sub cable and my Toshiba sd-1700 dvd is using a AR coaxial cable. (all digital connections)

    Those numbers look about right. LFE is the subwoofer channel. Good move turning the crossover all the way up. That way it doesn't interfere with the crossover in the receiver. My only nitpicking is with the sub level on the receiver. Why turn it down when you can leave it at 0 and adjust the level on the sub itself? Again, this is just nitpicking - don't take it too seriously [​IMG]
    I wouldn't think you could damage any equipment at the listening level you like.
