Steve~ With those speakers, I am not sure if it matters much what settings he uses.  I would try crossovers anywhere from 80 to 120 Hz.  I would also probably use the subwoofer amplifier's LP filter to even up the FR a bit, but that is speculative.

    Amp/Receiver/Speaker...Replacement Toslink Optical Input JacksI researched the receiver Sharp part number GP1FA512RZB.  It is discontinued. The recommended replacement of the above is GP1FA513RZOF.  It is discontinued. The recommended replacement of the above is GP1FAV31RKOF.  It is available in the current digikey catalog. http://dkc3.digikey.com/PDF/T073/P0296.pdf   Toli - The prices on those sites at kind of steep.  About $15.00 for an item that costs about $1.50 !!!

    Amp/Receiver/Speaker...Replacement Toslink Optical Input JacksThank you Aaron.  While we are at it, what would be the Optical Toslink Output Jack part number? When I place an order, I may as well stock up on the different jacks.  
    Amp/Receiver/Speaker...Replacement Toslink Optical Input JacksI have a Sony STR-DA4ES.  Are the Optical Toslink Input Jacks available as a service item?  If so, what is the part number. Thanks
    Amp/Receiver/Speaker...Dipole Speaker PhaseADP's are not dipole speakers.  They are dipolar at the top end, and bipolar at the low end.  If you reverse polarity, then you are asking for trouble in the lower frequencies. I would listen to your dealer, and not listen to half baked setup recommendations made by people who may be clueless about those specific surround speakers. Why not ask the manufacturer for the correct setup details if you don't trust your dealer? http://www.paradigm.com/en/reference/contact_us/
    Amp/Receiver/Speaker...Sony Cinema DSP modesI was playing around with my distance settings on the STR-DA4ES last night and noticed something for the first time.  When in the Cinema DSP modes, the speaker distance settings do not appear to be doing anything at all.  The distance settings remain on the menu, they can all be changed, but the distance settings do not appear to function.  In other words, you can not hear a difference between distance settings like you can hear in the auto-select mode.  I wonder if that is due to all the DSP that is used to create that Cinema sound. Perhaps the Cinema modes have fi ..
