this quote from the manual regarding 100Hz crossover, I find confusing:
Front (L, R)- Large, Small
Center (C-) Large, Small, None
Surround (LS, RS-) Large, Small, None
Subwoofer (LFE)- On, Off
Surround Back -Large, Small, None
Large : Delivers full bandwidth sound with bass below 100 Hz.
Small : If LFE is on, bass below 100 Hz will be outputted through a Subwoofer instead of the speakers. If LFE is off and the Front Speaker is set to Large, sound will be outputted through the Front Speaker.
None : Select to disable the speakers.
On : Select to use the subwoofer speaker.
Off : Select to disable the subwoofer speaker.
(This option can only be selected when the
Front (L+R) speakers are set to Large.)
Under the "speaker, small " section , it says "If LFE is on, bass below 100 Hz will be outputted through a Subwoofer instead of the speakers."
But then under the "subwoofer speaker " section , it says "(This option can only be selected when the Front (L+R) speakers are set to Large.)". Incidentally, it says the exact same things in the manual for the BD-P1400 !
Presumably it is a mistake and the 1st comment "If LFE is on, bass below 100 Hz will be outputted through a Subwoofer instead of the speakers." should be under the large speaker section ?
If so then this confirms the issue with the crossover, as suspected ?
But , it occurs to me , I have a REL subwoofer so even if I set LFE to OFF , it should be able to take the full Hz range signal from the post-amp front speaker output via the Neutrik cable and thereby get around the problem. I could try to see how this would sound on my exising set up. In fact I seem to remember REL recommending that their sub was connected this way. And if this still sounds good, then it needn't be a dealbreaker for anyone with this type of sub: simply setting LFE to OFF and using a neutrik cable for the sub could be all that is needed. I will post how this sounds with my HDA1 once I have tried it out, for what its worth.
