Will try this

I am skipping per your instructions the channels when doing the test tones are right on point with your email.

- CH1 = Left front
- CH2 = Right front
- CH3 = Left woofer
- CH4 = Right woofer
- CH5 = Left rear
- CH6 = Right rear
- CH7 = Center
- CH8 = Not used/your trunk sub via MS-8 CH8 RCA output

Gotcha ( same as in a home theater ) didnt put 2 and 2 together Pretty sure most are leaving logic 7 on for a more focuse'd front... Im assuming its like home theater where your center channel is your main channel it just sounds like its 75% center channel and 25% front vs like 50/50 again probaly by design.

Thanks Technic,
I will try all the above a little later as its 95 degrees outside right now so in the car with the windows up is a little rough.
