    I am curious even though I love the sound of my system. When I run the AccuEQ on the Receiver the HZ's for all of my speakers are dead on the spec sheets for all but the CS Video Center. the spec sheet shows 90-35kHz but AccuEQ show up at 150Hz. I just refoamed the 5.25's in the center last weekend and it showed exactly the same after the refoam as well. Again, it sounds great with movie dialoge and music but i just didnt understand the setting. I checked polarity. Again I think it all sounds great and its only 25 years old (cones are tight and no evidence at all of coil scrape ect.) Thoughts??

    You can try a test tone app on your smartphone hooked to the aux input on your receiver, and see if the output goes as low as it's supposed to.

    Also, make sure the woofers aren't out of phase with one another, that could affect the bass.

    I actually did that while doing the refoam--got a good tone @50hz. I will check the out of phase idea.

    thanks

    I have an older (ca 2008) Onkyo receiver in my home theater. After running the Audyssey setup I found I still had to tweak the crossover frequencies somewhat, especially when it comes to the subwoofer. I would have hoped that the tech had improved somewhat in the intervening years, but don't be afraid to adjust the parameters afterwards if it doesn't seem right. Better to get it to sound good than to worry why it's not being set up correctly.

    I agree, I don't have a problem changing them i was just wondering if that center is getting below the 150hz or what is the problem

    If you're going to get a new center, I'd recommend looking for one that more closely matches your Cerwins. I've never been a CV guy but I suspect that most Infinity speakers are voiced completely differently.

    I not sure even a new Vega would be
    Matched. I am just attached to my first real stereo purchase that I just don’t want to give them up

    How about a CV VS-80, assuming you have the space? Center speakers don't need to have an MTM arrangement.
