I think 120 would be a minimum. I set my crossover at 150, which is what Audyssey recommended when I ran it. It was the same for the Orbs and the Minx.

Vanns has the MM8 for a great price. I'm very happy with mine. It doesn't overpower the Minx and blends in very nicely. I haven't heard the X300 either but the specs seem very close and I couldn't...
