We just got our AVP-A1HDCI two days ago. It replaced an aging B+K REF30. Instant sound quality bump, much more transparent and open sounding!
My question: The AVP has (3) XLR sub outputs. However in the speaker setup menu, it seems as though the X-Over Frequency is the same for ALL 3 subs. Is there a way to alter this, or do I have to get a commercial XLR active crossover? We have (4) subs, (2) 10" Velodynes for 150-80hz, and (2) 15" Velo's for 80-20hz. The room is a large acoustically engineered and isolated 14 seat dedicated home theater, floating floor + ceiling, membrane suspension walls, etc. Designed from the ground up as a very acoustically damp room. Built after our training course with Russ Herschelman @ Dolby in San Fran. It is wonderful, but requires massive amounts of power to play @ THX levels. We struggled for years trying to get subs that would play loud enough on the bottom end (20-80hz) while at the same time playing fast enough to pick up mid bass. The solution has been dedicated 2-way subwoofers (done in car audio all the time)
Anyways, does anyone know the best setup on the AVP to perform this?
I was thinking about setting the surround speakers to "small", X-Over @ 150hz (sending the 150-20hz) to the L+R subs, then using an active X-Over to split that signal between the 10's and 15's?
