yep lol i actually have the book reading it

croosover freq is 80 by default< in the pioneer it says "Crossover Network
• Default setting: 80Hz" so.. crossover network is freq right?

i set it to 150 as said by the manul in my klipsch hd 500

"NOTE: The A/V receiver/surround sound processor must be set to “Subwoofer On”
and all speakers set to “small”.
The suggested crossover point is 150 Hz. If 150 Hz is not available, use 120 Hz."

i dont have the mic yet but i want to plug everything in and see how it sounds =]

i guess i will just leave it at crossover network 80hz by default.

Set the crossover to 120 or 150. Your HD500 speakers don't go down to 80hz.

What size are the largest drivers? I am concerned if you set it for 150Hz, you'll have a hole in the mid-bass between maybe 120Hz and 150Hz but I haven't seen the fr graphs for your speakers either. Thing is the sub may be diving off before the mid range can pick it up if you set the cross over too high. Too bad you don't have something between 100 and 150 to use there. That's a big span in the mid bass to not have a place to set the cross over frequency. Go with 150. If it sounds too tinny then try 100.

Sounds like Afro GT knows more about those speakers than I do. I'm guessing they're HTiB type speakers?

sounds good?

3 pair for banana plugs will enable you to connect 3 speakers or 3 sets of speaker terminals on the receiver. Each channel needs one pair, one plug each for + and -. Since you have the HD500 they only need bare speaker wire but you can use banana plugs on the back of the Pioneer receiver which is very convenient. You've got a 5.1 speaker system, you need 5 pair of banana plugs and one subwoofer cable. Order two more sets of banana plugs.

System: 36Hz - 20kHz

Satellite Speaker: 150Hz - 20kHz

Subwoofer: 36Hz - 200Hz


Set the crossover at 150hz.

so um these speakers are pretty good yea?
post #74 of 77
They're okay. Just satellite speakers. I prefer larger bookshelf speakers that go down to 80hz.
