Nice. I think we're now both barking up the same tree here. And I think originally we weren't on the same page, so not sure what has changed, but...
This is exactly what I'm doing... even though I actually have small fronts (57Hz low end), I set to LARGE and SW as PLUS. I then use the sub's x-over turned to a low setting to just blend in with the bass extension of my small fronts but control duplication.
So based on piecing together from multiple posts from contributors to this thread, what I think reality is (or at least for the moment!), even with everything at LARGE and SW at PLUS, the x-over is still in play as it appears on screen (I thought prior that if all were selected LARGE then the x-over was no longer active). So assuming this correct, I am running fronts as LARGE with the x-over set to 80Hz, and SW to PLUS, and dialed in the low pass on my sub to 60Hz (which is where my fronts start to roll off).
Yes I understand the amp is going to be working a little harder with my fronts set to LARGE but the way the amp is designed I don't think I have a choice, or at least that's what my ears are still telling me, as this arrangement still stands as the best settings I've arrived at so far.Edited by Jim Rockford - 3/26/13 at 7:28pm
