I just got myself a new surround installation:
- 5x B&W M1 (same speaker for center, front and back)
- SVS SB12-NSD
- Denon AVR-X2000
I first ran the Audyssey setup resulting in the following crossover settings:
- center: 60 Hz
- front (L/R): 80 Hz
- back (L/R): 110 Hz
- subwoofer: 120 Hz
I was surprised to see different settings for the 5 speakers.
Is this normal because the 5 speakers are all the same?
And is the setting for the subwoofer not too high?
What if I change this value to e.g. 90 Hz?
I still have overlap with the center and front-speakers but not with the back-speakers.
When I listen to speech/voices (through the speakers), it sounds clear and at a good volume.
If the speakers also need to produce "bass-sounds", the volume of speech/voices is noticeable decreasing.
Could this be caused by the crossover settings?
Or can this be related to the dialog level (+3dB) or dynamic volume (Medium) settings of my receiver?
Some advice for a newbie would be useful.
