Good evening sir
My home theatre area-room- 17'6'' X 12'00'' with wooden flooring
System config:

Two Pair Wharfedale 10.DFS rear/Surround Speakers
Wharfedale D-10 Subwoofer
One pair of warfaedale 10. DFS as height speakers
Pioneer LX-302 Av Receiver
I am not getting good surround effect.
I configured speakers by Macc tuning and speakers are in perfect alignment
I sincerely seek help regarding suggestions for improving system so that I can get good sound effect for both movies and music
Should I buy one more subwoofer if yes what brand and which is the best
Any other change of speakers. Budget any amount
With regards

You mean no sound from the surrounds? Or not the desired effect?

Hi!
I have similar setup.
My Wharfedale sw 150 sub will give impact from 55%or more than 12 O clock position on wards on Marantz AVR. It is now running in 18ftX 23 ft room. It is 10 years old still it is running good.
This was quite different when I have connected to stereo amp preouts where I have good impact on 50%it self.
So no harm keeping the volume knob at 1'O clock (60%) position.

All the best

Can you just wire the fronts to the fronts and the center to the center.

i am assuming you still have the pins that connect the high and the low when using a single speaker wire.

try it without biwiring,

I have a feeling thats where you problem is

I thought biwiring will help in good audio output.
Why do we do biwiring? What are the advantages and disadvantages
And I have used - DAC 14 for wiring speakers and since wire was less for biwiring I have use profigold-16 for biwiring without cutting any wire. Please suggest any modifications
With regards. Vinayaka

Is adding one more subwoofer will help?
If yes- what should I choose- Velodyne wiq or svs which brand and which is best
Since my receiver supports 2 subwoofer so that I can get sweet spot and may improve bass
So that I can hear good music and watch movies.
