    The stock answer is to run all of the speakers 'small' and send the sub line out to the PCi, with the PCi crossover all the way up (open).

    What speakers will you have?

    They are going to be the reference series from klipsch. Not quite sure which ones yet though. Do not know if im going to spend the money to get the 7 series or just stick with the 3's

    I'd be using the receiver crossover with all speakers set to small just like Colin suggested. Reguardless of whether you go with RF7 or RF3 towers.

    Ok so i do not even set the cross over on the svs? just put everything to small on the reciever and it all should be good. Well after that then i use a spl to set it all in. My friend said to use both but i dont' know if he is correct of not.
