Speaking of dreams. Last night I dreamed I bought a new car, but forgot to ask what price it was. Then when I went back to the dealer, they wouldn't tell me.

If you have to ask the price you can't afford it ;\)

What if you've hired someone else to ask the price?

Maybe I could just default on the payments and they would repossess it. But then, they would probably sell it for less then sue me for the difference, and never tell me how much I owed them.

For those of you that have a denon receiver, how do you run the Audyssey calibration? On the manual, it just says to plug the mic and run the auto setup. That's what I did, but I remember a while back reading on this forum about a reference of 75db or something similar. Also, does the position of the volume knob matters when running the auto calibration, does it have to be at a certain volume? Should it be set to 0? There was a thread here about this but I can't seem to find it.

bdpf, The volume on the receiver does not matter when running the auto setup/ audyssey. The setting of the gain knob on your sub woofer does matter though. As soon as you plug the mic into the denon the auto setup screen shows up.

Here is the Audyssey FAQ on the Audyssey web page:
http://www.audyssey.com/faq/index.html

Here is a great setup guide (download the word doucment at the end of the first post) over at AVS forum:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?p=14456895#post14456895

When the setup is done I recommend changing the fronts to small, and the lfe to 120 on the crossover setup menu in the denon.

Thanks for the sites.
Right now, I don't have a sub but are you talking about changing the crossover between the fronts and the sub to 120HZ? Isn't that too high? I have the M80s so I thought the crossover should be around 40, 60, 80Hz depending on preference.

He's just talking about the high pass filter on the sub side, not between the M80s and the sub.

Maybe.

Uhhhhh...

OK.

The crossover in the receiver refers to removing frequencies below a certain level for the regular speakers, right? Now, the high pass filter in the receiver removes frequencies above a certain level for the sub. You want to set that at the same level or higher than the highest crossover level (probably your surrounds). That way you're fully covered, and there's not a lot of doubling.
