If I run the subwoofers flat and level matched with the speakers it then sounds like the subs themselves have no mid-bass and we know that's not the case...
Every person that has been in my room that has been shown what flat bass that's level matched to the speakers has the same exact reaction. "Go back to how it was before."
Getting back to your question, the eD 12"s are meant to be crossed over at 80hz, their response drops off a cliff below the low 70's.
