Mixed Signals to Noise

I was going to wait until I knew if I got the apartment before setting up my new sourround system, but the speakers on my existing system finally started dying, forcing me to go ahead with the new one now, after getting new speakers. (Might as well set it all up at the same time.) I don't know if this is a sign that I'm not getting the apartment and will be here a while longer, or if it means I will get it and I had to get new speakers for the new place. Oracles can be so annoying.

Now that I have it set up, I found that the auto configuration for the spreakers won't work because it's too noisy here. I'll see if I have better luck at night, but I doubt it. The new place is much quieter, with no constant drive-bys or neighbors' noises, so it should work there.
