    RSP-1066/RSX-1055/RSX-165 Settings survey

    I would like to have a survey on your Rotel Sound Processor settings. Speakers are floor stands from Monitor Audio: Silver 8i front (35Hz-25KHz), Silver 5i rears (38Hz-25Khz), Silver 10i centre (48Hz-25KHz) and REL Quake subwoofer (23Hz-150Hz).

    My current setup is:

    SUB SETUP:

    CROSSOVER: 40HZ
    DOLBY: 0dB
    DTS: 0dB
    STEREO: off
    MUSIC: 0dB
    MULTI INPUT: 0dB

    SPEAKER SETUP:

    FRONT: Small
    CENTER: Small
    SURROUND: Small
    CENTER BACK: None
    SUBWOOFER: Yes
    CB SPKR SEL: 1 SPEAKER

    Any recommendation or changes on my current settings?

    Thx

    My 1066 is set up with the sub @ 60 and all the speakers set to large. The rest of my settings are the same as yours Running vandersteen 3s in front vandersteen 2s in the rear & bose 901 series six run in series for the center. My sub is a unit that I built myself. It,s tough to give any advice because of differing speakers & rooms, however I have had varying results with different speaker placement, if your looking to fine tune your system you might start there.

      CROSSOVER: 80HZ
      DOLBY: 0dB
      DTS: 0dB
      STEREO: off
      MUSIC: 0dB
      MULTI INPUT: -4dB

      SPEAKER SETUP:

      FRONT: Small
      CENTER: Small
      SURROUND: Small
      CENTER BACK: None
      SUBWOOFER: Yes
      CB SPKR SEL: 1 SPEAKER

      To get my settings, after callibrating, I just switched back and forth to find the settings that sounded best to my ears. I'm one who notches the sub up a couple of decibels during callibration as a preference though. Also, have now bought the Behringer Feedback Destroyer, but haven't used it yet, so that might well affect the settings in the end. Pretty busy right now, so it might take quite a while before I get around to it.

          Pbarata-

          Nice choice in speakers. I'm running a Monitor Audio 7i/10i/FXi combo with a Velodyne sub. I have a Monitor Audio FB-210 sub that I'm not using yet due to space constraints.

          All speakers are set to small and I have the crossover set to 100Hz on my 1098 although I have been experimenting with the 80Hz and 60Hz settings as well. I think the MA's sound really good with a lower crossover setting. I've noticed when watching movies and there is a pan from right to left or vice-versa the lower crossover setting sounds better. I'll have to give 40Hz a try as well.

            Just for your info here's mine

            SUB SETUP:

            CROSSOVER: 40HZ
            DOLBY: +2dB
            DTS: +1dB
            STEREO: +2
            MUSIC: 0dB
            MULTI INPUT: 0dB

            SPEAKER SETUP:

            FRONT: Large
            CENTER: Large
            SURROUND: Large
            CENTER BACK: None
            SUBWOOFER: Max
            CB SPKR SEL: 1 SPEAKER

            At my Active Subwoofer, frequency setting is also at 40hz, so that the sub really cuts at 40hz and I have to boost a bit on my subwoofer volume to hear the lower frequency.

              Paradigm monitor 7 front, CC370, Mini Monitor rear and PW 2200 sub

              SUB SETUP:

              CROSSOVER: 80HZ (for movies) ofetn change to 60 HZ for 2 Ch music)
              DOLBY: 2dB
              DTS: 2dB
              STEREO: 0 db
              MUSIC: 0dB
              MULTI INPUT: 0dB

              SPEAKER SETUP:

              FRONT: Small
              CENTER: Small
              SURROUND: Small
              CENTER BACK: None
              SUBWOOFER: Yes
              CB SPKR SEL: 1 SPEAKER

              I run at the standard 80 HZ crossover for movies as movies are mixed for this but also since I only have the 1055 and no external amp I feel it keeps the load off the amps.

              I calibrate my sub FLAt (or as close as possible). I use AVia to set all speakers (60 on the volume or 71 DB ). Then I switch to the test tone and use them to set the SUb to about 69 Db on the RS sound meter for the sub. Apparently at lower HZ the RS meter reads about 2 db high).

                DTS: 0

                I've calibrated my system with the 1066's internal test tones to 75dB and this setting gives me the smoothest frequency response. To map a frequency response I used Stereophile's Test CD 3 and the RadioShack Sound Level Meter. This only tests the SUB and Front L & R but that's where most of my listening is done- music in 2ch.

                Speakers are: Vienna Acoustics Mozart (FRONT), Vienna Acoustics Maestro (CENTER), Vienna Acoustics Haydn (Surround), Velodyne CT-120 (SUB). My room is very...intimate. It measures 13'W x 15'L x 8'H. The sweetspot is equidistant (8') from the arc the front three speakers create. The surrounds are placed about 2' above ear level (when seated) and directly to the sides of the sofa.

                  Let's see:

                  Crossover set at 80
                  All Speakers small with sub.
                  No center back
                  Sub level:
                  Stereo +3
                  Dolby +1
                  DTS +1
                  Music 0

                  All calibrated to 85 db, although I recently hit the default button on my 1066 and screwed up some of my settings ops:
