I posted this question earlier but was probably too wordy.
I have run Audyssey on my new receiver to set speaker levels. It set my front speaker crossovers at 200Hz and my subwoofer onboard crossover maxes out at 100Hz. For reference, the manufacturers lower frequency spec for my front speakers is about 110Hz. Subwoofer output on receiver set to LFE (not LFE + Main) and LPF for LFE is at 120 Hz.
First off, I am concerned about the frequency response gap between the subwoofer at 100Hz and the front speakers set at 200Hz during 2 channel music playback. I want to have the receiver run Audyssey Dynamic Equalization, but if I manually reduce the front speaker crossover point to 110Hz the receiver reverts to manual speaker setup and turns off Dynamic EQ. And if I use the direct low level input on my sub so the receiver can do all the bass management, the volume output of the sub overpowers the small speakers. Any suggestions on how to best handle this?
Secondly, what is the real world effect of having the receiver set the LPF for LFE at 120Hz, but the subwoofer internally limiting it's frequency response at 100Hz. Will I be missing the movie LFE output at 120Hz? My understanding is that this frequency is dedicated to the movie low frequency effects.
Thanks in advance for the help.
