Thumbs up Can anyone tell me what crossover frequency I should be using?

I have a VTF-15H Mk2 (which I just blew out the driver on). As soon as I get my new driver I want to know which crossover frequency I should be using. I've got the gain at 9 'o' clock (which I have heard is good) and I've actually got my receiver set at 0 dB to the subwoofer. Comments? Criticisms? I don't want to destroy the next driver too.
Thanks!

Like I said before, if I were you, I would set it to 'EQ2' with both ports open and the Q control set to maybe '.5'. Set the crossover switch to 'out'. This should make a substantial difference in sound to the settings you had before. It should also do more to protect the sub. Let us know how those settings work. By the way, these settings are all explained in the manual.

I think you had your answer already in the other thread. AVR crossover at 80Hz.

Enjoy the beast. I've had mine for about two weeks now and have nothing but stellar things to say about the unit. Truly something special to be felt!

Based upon my experience I suspect you're going to be pleasantly surprised.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

I just got home and got it unboxed, I have to say that out of all the subs I have had in the house over the last couple of months the packaging on the Hsu was the best. Fedex would have to be extremely careless to be able to damage the sub in transit.
