. The low end drops off quickly below 40Hz so you'll start to loose clean output on frequencies below this.
Please also note that the Min10 will need a high crossover of at least 150Hz according to tests done by thread starter Perpendicular. If the Min10 speakers are significantly away from the walls where bass reinforcement is not available, a higher crossover frequency maybe required. Your Yamaha receiver will let you know the crossover frequency when the auto-calibration is run.
Placement of the sub will be key in having a smooth crossover transition between the Min10 speakers and Yamaha sub. If you haven't done so, carry out the sub crawl test (shown in post number 2,634
) to find the best location of the sub in the room relative to your Main Listening Position (MLP).
i got that yamaha slim subwoofer,
i need no more than half of it's volume dial
but i still feel the shock wave from sofa
i love it
as you mentioned, i should set the crossover at 160Hz
so that min 10 handle >160Hz while subwoofer handle =< 160Hz
sounds perfect much
I didn't do the auto-calibration yet, but i think the system will set higher level of subwoofer
becoz, i placed the subwoofer behind the soft (it's firing toward the back wall)
will try the subwoofer crawl test later after really config all the speakers
I have to scarify the quality coz changes are all about my 1 yr old son
sold the sony 5.1 set
brought a new receiver and 5.1 speakers and place them as high as possible
hide the slim subwoofer behind the sofa
i know it's not perfect, but i like the sound (and the shock)
one thing i love min 10 beside 1st see the price tag $37 is the small size:
it made my 9'x9' living room bigger in contrast :P
thank you very much for your advise
