Either disable or max out the xo on the sub. Let the AVR handle the bass management.

Pretty much all Blu-ray players have the same video quality. They are separated by A/V options, audio quality and upscaling.

It's difficult for anyone to say Brand X driver is the best. It has to be able to function properly in a cylinder. I know I am really bad at Trigonometry.

Hi. I have a question about the LFE channel and the LPF in my PC13-Ultra. If I set the LPF to 80Hz, what happens to the frequencies from 80-120Hz?
Thank you,

Scott

Any piece of equipment that is THX-certified will emphasize their recommended settings. My last sub was a Klipsch KT-SW. Like yours, it didn't have an LPF. I set that in my pre/pro.

And you set the sub's LPF as high as it goes or disable the LPF. My subs go up to 120Hz. I can't see how the LPF on the sub could be a shelving filter, because at the selected freq, the filter will...

If the LPF on the LFE channel is set to 80, freqs 80-120Hz will not be audible. They are filtered out by the 80Hz setting. The AVR setting for THX is a standard for THX. We use it as a starting point...

If that setting is in your AVR, all freqs over 80Hz will go to your mains.

The LFE ".1" channel in multi-channel audio extends up to 120Hz. That should be the setting on your sub.

That is incorrect. You are confused with xo settings. With the xo set at 80Hz for non-HT audio, the sub plays <80Hz and the other speakers play >80Hz. For HT audio listening, the ".1" LFE channel for...

Most xo's in AVR's have a xo slope of 6dB/octave. An octave is half or double a certain freq.

You still need a speaker that can go down to around 40Hz with the xo at 80. A 6" driver won't make it.

Most full range speakers can't reproduce a 20Hz signal. That's where the subs shine. My Chorus II's have 15" woofers. Xo is set to 80Hz.

If you have your xo set correctly, the sub will play only those freqs below that setting. I use the same settings for both music and movies.
