Denon AVR 1612
BA A360 fronts:
Manufacture frequency range: 38Hz – 25kHz
BA A225C center:
Manufacture frequency range: 65Hz – 25kHz
BA A26 Surrounds:
Manufacture frequency range: 51Hz – 25kHz
energy S10.3 Subwoofer:
Manufacture frequency range: 21 Hz - 120 Hz
I know a lot of people say just leave all the speakers at 80Hz, but this sounds much better to me. I just dont want to lose anything. Is it wise to set the crossover for the center so close to the cutoff for the sub? Would I be better off going even higher for that center? Are the manufacturers readings valid? Will the energy really go to 120Hz or maybe cutoff closer to 100Hz? Let me know what you think! Also, room size is about 11'x15'x10' and I sit about 10.5 ft from the fronts if that matters. Sub is near the fronts.
1. Did Audyssey set them at those frequencies? If so, they are probably correct. If you have not used Audyssey, you should.
2. The crossover (LP filter) for the LFE channel has nothing to to with the bass-management crossovers for the main channels.
3. The manufacturers specs you quote are meaningless because there are no +/-dB qualifications and they were not taken in your room/setup.
Yes, I ran Audyssey. It set everything round 40Hz which I know is wrong. I never mentioned the LFE channel, which I set to 120Hz. I know the manufacture specs don't correlate to my room and are not going to be accurate, which is why I didn't set the crossover at those numbers.
Right. I doubt that is a hard limit for the sub and, if possible, you should bypass any crossover in the sub, itself. That said, your settings seem appropriate.
I was reading somewhere that all the crossovers should be the same and set front L/R SPEAKERS TO SMALL AT 80 Hz.
It does sound not as smooth when the settings are different, when they are all at 80Hz it sounds better.
What's the deaL?
For the front L/R Rti A9's in just 2 channel stereo what should the crossover be set to?
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
