Hello,

I just installed a pair of monoprice 8 Inches Kevlar 3-Way High Power In-Wall Speakers. (6816) for my fronts in my HT.

I have a 5.1 system but i might ditch the sub woofer for a little while making it just a 5.0 system.

My question is what setting do i put the Adjustment Switch to? (0, -3, -6 dB)
There's no instrutions or information about the settings. Would it be the same setting when i remove the sub from the HT also?

I have a pioneer vsx-409 powering the speakers. thanks for your help.

Hello Darenm,

Thank you for your inquiry. Now the cross over switch allows you to better match the in-wall speakers to the wall you are installing them into by adjusting the roll off between the drivers. Standard non-in-wall speakers come in boxes that are optimized for the speaker and the crossovers are tuned for that specific enclosure. In-wall speakers use the space between the walls as it's enclosure.

Since different wall spaces will vary in volume, construction, insulation, etc, a particular in-wall speaker will sound different in different walls. The switch allows you to adjust and optimize the sonic characteristics of the speakers to best match the wall you are installing them into. Set the switch to the setting that gives you the best sounds once they've been installed. Hope this helps!

Regards,
