Here are my my speakers frequency response:

Center: 85Hz - 23KHz
Main: 50Hz - 23 KHz
Surrounds: 83Hz - 23KHz

+/- 3 dB

What should be the crossover wetting in my AVR? 100Hz? I don't have advance x-over allowing me different crossover to accommodate each channel.


It's not about output, it's about having headroom and a smooth response across multiple seats. And output a little bit.

Do you have a sub? If so, THX suggest you set the crossover at 80hz and set the speakers to small so that all the sound 80hz and below goes to the sub. You dont want the crossover set too high or else you could get some dialog and other asound you dont want in the sub showing up in the sub.

That's the short comings of having a receiver with only 1 xover point.

I would try 80hz (no lower) if 80 doesn't sound good then try 100hz.

If you go above 80hz I recommend having the sub as close to the center and mains as you can so its not so localizable.

I'd take a stab at 100hz, or (if the receiver lets you), 90hz.

Does your receiver let you do any sort of auto-setup routine? Also, I'm assuming this is the theater in your sig-link? Is the SMS-1 setup properly?
