It was already explained earlier in this thread. There is no practical difference between a passive 80 Hz HP filter and an electronic 80 Hz HP filter.

So did my speakers. However I only waited 4 months to buy my subwoofers, so I have used my subwoofers for 20 years. I made some changes in the subwoofer system and subwoofer's electronics in the...

You might also ask why they did not build in some type of protection into their systems?

Those are ported speakers. Kind of hard to blend ported speakers with external subwoofers unless you get the port frequencies out of the way via a high pass filter.

Bandwidth that the driver in question covers. If you cross at 80 Hz in the AVR, the bottom driver covers 620 Hz. If you take into account the port frequency, it is pretty easy to see that those...

I did not recommend that you should setup your system in any particular way.


My speakers were designed to run without bass management, so I can run them any way that I deem as appropriate.

Of course it works fine. I am not trying to compete with output levels in the range that MKT's system will produce.


I have no trouble playing WOTW and Master and Commander at spirited levels.

Your speakers are ported with a 66 Hz port frequency. 2 1/2 way speaker with a 700 Hz crossover. I would not run those speakers as large for movies. They need to be high pass filtered to protect...

Why is an 80 Hz crossover considered to be "low"? In a typical system setup 80 Hz crossovers are used every day for 2 way speakers being crossed over to a subwoofer. Is it really that much of a...

You specifically said "20 Hz from each main speaker at 115 dB+". In addition, it is obvious that you do not understand the BM setup that I use. Your numbers are wrong!
