    Setting up 1066 and delays

    In my setup of the 1066, I noticed that there is a setup area that sets the delay (in MS) to each speaker. Does anyone know an easy way of setting them correctly? Any info would be appreciated!

    1ms is roughly equal to 1 foot. So start with your mains at zero and calculate the additional delay needed for your other speakers based on how much closer they are. For instance if your center channel is 1 foot closer than your mains, set the delay at 1ms.

      The manual explains it step-by-step in the 'Delay Settings' section.

          My rule of thumb is that if it cost over $1000, I'm going to figure out how every feature works, which means reading the manual.

          Could you go over the issues with bass management again? :LOL:


          :banana:

          Why the banana, because it is cool and I haven't used it yet..

              Manual? There was a manual included with the 1066, no way

              Thanks Jeff for the answer, does that mean one foot closer to your ears in the "kings" seat? and the same thing goes with the surrounds, measuer the distance from the "kings" seat to the speakers and adjust accordingly?

              Thanks,

              Jim

                Yeah, you can really only dial-in the exact delay settings for one seating position, so it might as well be yours.

                    What happens if your center spk is 2 ft behind your mains like mine?

                      DK,

                      It still depends on how far apart your mains are. Take a tape measure and measure from your seating position to your front left. Now measure from seating to center. For every foot your center is away more than your front add 1ms..

                      Chances are if your center is 2 feet closer to the wall than your fronts, the actual distance difference from where you sit will be about the same so no delay is needed.
