As a baseline, try setting the x-over 10-15hz above their lowest frequency response that they can do +-3db. You may need to set them at 80hz if you do not have enough amp power to push those woofers.
I started my 802 diamonds at 80hz because i felt my MC205 amp did not have enough grunt to push the woofers. This all changed once i got my MC601 mono blocks. I now set them up at 50hz. Much more accurate and detailed delivery of bass in unison with my F113 sub. Best part of all, the sub is much less localized.
Hi Scanido, thanks for your input. do you think that the RB-1582(2x200W) could drive the 804D(Frequency response 38Hz - 28kHz ±3dB on reference axis) and maybe 60 Hz for xover could be fine?
