jakeman, re: ep600 and your fronts, since I assume they only have speaker level INPUTS (not outputs) that your front left and right speakers are playing LARGE (full range) and the axioms are connected to them via speaker level? or using the lfe input (left only connected and right only connected - because there is only one RCA input)?

Mike. Yes I have the 600s connected at line level L and R large signal from the processors XLR outputs, then crossing at the subs. The LFE plus redirected surrounds from the processor and unbalanced RCA large L and R are run through the SMS and crossed. Then the speaker signals output to the amp. I thought I may have had a problem with cascading crossovers for the surrounds but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Your suggestion of using separate RCA L and R into each L and R sub should work as well.

St. Pat. Well put. I alternate between thinking its either a curse or a blessing. If you ask my wife she would suggest I'm in the former category based on the time and $$s spent.

so jakeman, what is your opinion re: how much <80hz information is there on the center and surrounds? (subwoofer worthy?)

Definetly subwoofer worthy on the surrounds. LFE + redirected surrounds into one sub works for me. Lots of info in the surrounds in action or war movies especially.

Centre is more vocalized. Usually I find running the centre large makes voices seem less chesty. Lately, I am noticing more bass in music DVDs in the centre. I was listening to session 1 of Eric clapton's Sessions with Robert J DVD a couple of nights ago and was surprised to see so much bass guitar coming from the centre so I may set the centre to small on music DVDs.
