My front speakers frequency response is 43-22,000hz. My subwoofer is 29-140hz. Calibration tools reccommend 60 to 80hz for crossover frequency. Why would I not just set the crossover frequency to 43hz for the speakers? surley you would be losing some sound from the speakers if you set it to 60hz? Also setting the crossover to 60, does that mean anything above 60hz from the subwoofer is rendered obsolete?
Sorry for the ignorant question, just curious to know peoples opinions
The acceptable range for your xo is :
xo range 43-140
As mentioned in another post don't trust the stated spec and use a xo 10-15 Hz higher. Also don't go above 100 Hz to keep the sub from being able to be located. Small satellite system have to use xo's over 120 to 150 hz.
