I've just bought a new 5:1 surround set and am a bit confused about the sub, so if anyone could help with a "subs for dummies" explanation it would be really appreciated!
The sub is a Cabasse Santorin 21. The set up says to set speakers to small in the receiver's menu, and set the crossover dial on the sub to 200Hz. I don't have the option to change speakers to floor standing / small etc in my receiver, but I do have the option to set the crossover frequency, which the sub manual says set to 140Hz. I've gone to 130, as there is no 140.... next step is 150.
So, what I don't get is why is there a crossover dial on the sub, which should be set to 200 (according to the Cabasse manual) if I'm making the settings on the receiver too? And why are they different? The sub does not have a crossover bypass like my old Mirage did.
Any help greatly appreciated as the setup sounds crap compared to my old Mirage Omnisat system, but it shouldn't do.... !
