Default Greetings! Yamaha RX-v667 and "dual" Polk PSW-110 subs

Happy to be here!

My first question: What are the optimal subwoofer settings and set up for my Yamaha RX-v667 and "dual" Polk PSW-110 subwoofers?

I have a medium size home theater room above the garage in my two story home. My other speakers are Polk that include two towers, center, and rear surrounds. I had been running a Velodyne CHT-10 and wanted to try something different. Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks!

The first critical step in setting up multiple subs in placement.

"If you are running two subs, the ideal locations for them in a rectangular room are on opposing vertical or horizontal midwalls."

Next, set the controls on the back of the sub(s).
On pg 20 of the Yamaha manual, it states you should set the volume control on the sub(s) to the half way point or slightly less and the crossover frequency to maximum. I would set both subs to zero phase.

That will get you in the ball park. For a more detailed setup, see this article on calibration.
http://www.audioholics.com/subwoofer...-calibration-1

Also, be sure to run the Acoustic Optimizer (YPAO) to allow the AVR to calibrate the speakers to your room's acoustic environment. These calibration programs do not always do the best job with subs, so do not accept the AVR's settings as set in stone. I consider them a starting point. Apply your our personal "tastes" to the set up.
