Is your AVR crossover and speaker menus setup correctly?

This is the weirdest problem, but luckily it's been fixed.
I emailed Genesis, and they said it might be the active servo cable which they can replace for $2000USD. I asked around, and most people seem to think there may be a DC offset coming out of my AVR which is confusing the active servo system. So I checked the cables, and they looked fine. Then I got another pre amp and magically the problem went away. It works perfectly. Now here's the weird part. I plugged it back into my AVR and this time, everything is working fine! I have no idea what happened in the 2 days or so they have been sitting there, but I'm listening to them right now, and they are working perfectly and sound fantastic. Very odd.
Hi there, Carl here. Did you ever get an owners manual for your Genesis V's? I have both the manual and the brochure if you need a copy. I have owned the 2.5's and the 201's so I am quite familiar with their various strengths and weaknesses. Let me know if you need anything. Best regards, Carl F. Tenckhoff.
I wanted to ask some questions about connections as I considering buying from another seller. I now have a set up with speaker wire feeds through a wall plate from a remote receiver. Where does the primary speaker connection go to? The remote servo amplifier or the speaker cabinets themselves? How thick / long are the servo cables? Could the servo amplifier be remoted (placed in basement ) and fed to two speakers? What kind of servo connectors? Could cable be spliced / reconnectorized? If servo amplifier was in basement, what IR remote control features would be lost / inconvenient? Do you use the remote control features often after initial set up? How is on/off controlled? How is high pass / low pass achieved? Are preamp feeds also required? Thanks. I am Max S in New Jersey.
