    Just a quick question regarding setting the delay times on my amp for my speaker distances. Are the speaker distances (we enter into the amp) "as the crow flies" or do they include height as well?

    Thanks.

    It is the direct distance between the speaker and the listening position.
    So if you sit above the speaker it would include the height, too. :D ;)

    As the crow flies means that it's the shortest distance between the points - which is exactly what it is.

    So if you really wanted to you could measure the vertical and horizontal distance and then use pythagorous - alternatively you could just get a tape measure and do it that way. Straight line from the speaker to your ears in the optimal listening position :)
