Perhaps I sacrificed a little too much clarity for the sake of brevity. Find/Replace 35Hz with 35-120Hz.

I'm pretty sure his point was something like this:
Increasing output at 35Hz, for most of us, is not analogous to increasing the top speed on a superbike. It's more like swapping in a much higher...

There's definitely nothing wrong with choosing not to chase the low end. Nothing wrong with that at all. But I hate seeing the idea that it must be expensive to do so get repeated. People see posts...

Sorry to be off topic, but I'm intrigued by your AV rack. Are those pioneer bookshelf speakers laid face down under a piece of glass?

Sorry, I should have been more clear. It's 1.78, not the original 1.33.

There aren't any drawbacks if you're satisfied with the aesthetic. Joe's response nailed it. They just aren't in style around here right now. They'll be back eventually. If you want a ported...

I can confirm that Downers' neighbor to the west Woodridge, also in DuPage, requires metal conduit in residential. If I recall correctly, it was a village code rather than county. You would not be...

That's a nice article and a good refresher for anybody that isn't familiar with the LFE channel or its history. Another nice link Billy. But it still says nothing about applying a crossover to LFE....

I couldn't agree more. Which is exactly why I've asserted that any subwoofer for home theater use should be capable up to 120Hz.

For the very specific context of this discussion, I was calling 80Hz-120Hz the "high end" of the LFE channel. It has been pointed out that not much information usually ends up in that range. While...

crossover applied to LFE channel

The question is whether typical AVRs and processors can apply a crossover to the LFE channel. Does any processor give the option of playing the low end of LFE through a subwoofer output and...

I'm definitely not confusing the LFE channel with the subwoofer output. It drives me nuts when people do that. Personally I think referring to the subwoofer output as a "channel" contributes to that...

Great document Billy. I haven't seen it before.

There's a line in there that seems to directly contradict what I've been arguing.

So I'll gladly concede that LFE content COULD be redirected to...

Sadly I have. But I'm not aware of any of them that do what you're describing with the LFE channel.

You're describing how a crossover works on bass-managed main channels. Typical AVRs are capable...

I'm not aware of any audio processors on the market that can take a portion of LFE and redirect it to the mains. Are you? I'm sure lots of people would find it interesting.

Localizable or not, if...

Ignoring the content below 20Hz might be debated, but it is a reasonable sacrifice for the sake of cost and/or space. Ignoring the content over 80Hz is far less justifiable in my opinion. It is...
