I recently added a new subwoofer to my 5.1 system and have since been compulsively tweaking my speaker frequencies and crossover frequency. I downloaded a tone generating app for fun and started listening to different tones and noticed that my speakers are playing well below the frequencies I had designated for each channel and the crossover frequency.
- Using 'small' speaker setting
- Manual crossover frequency knob on subwoofer is set to 120 hz
- Speaker frequency is is set at 100 hz
- Crossover frequency is set at 100 hz
When generating a 50 hz tone, my subwoofer and speakers are both playing the tone. Its my understanding that my speakers should be playing tones greater than or equal to 100hz and my subwoofer should be playing less than or equal to 100 hz. Any ideas on what might be causing my speakers to play so low?
