I just took a quick look at my settings and I was quite shocked to find out the following..

Let me first say that I have an Anthem MRX500 working with an Emotiva XPA to help drive the front three. ARC was ran back when I first got the receiver by the person who has done all my calibrations in the past 9 years..

Here is what everything is set at:

Front Speakers: Large
Center Speaker: Large
Surround: small 120hz



This took me by surprise since I have never had my system setup this way...as I have always had a subwoofer.

Then I noticed that the distance settings appear to be what the factory sets them at and not the actual distances from listening area. I pulled out some settings I had back with my old Denon 4810 after Audyssey was ran and they are much different in all ways. This includes the DB levels of the speakers. My subwoofer is set at -9, whereas with the Denon, I had it set at -1.0. All the other settings are off as well..

What I don't know is if the ARC sets things this way or if they didn't get set at all.

Looks like the lowest I can go is 60hz.

Any suggestions?

Why don't you rerun the calibration yourself?

I have to find out if I can run it on my computer since it was originally ran on another computer...not sure if that causes a problem or not..
