I'm just guessing, I have no idea how YPAO works.
It took me a while to reply. I was busy flying across the Atlantic ocean. Nothing like a Saturday business trip!
Nice find on the video! That GUI is different than the one I have on mine, probably from a different year. What you see at the end is not a crossover setting but the EQ settings for that speaker. After the room calibration is done, my AVR gives three Auto EQ options (IMG_5886) plus a Manual EQ and an EQ Bypass (the "through").
In IMG_5884 you can see the Bass crossover setting and in IMG_5883 you can see the speaker size configuration.
PretzelFisch says his Yamaha 2030 can do individual speaker crossovers. Judging by model number, his model is one year older than mine (xx30, vs my xx40) but his model is a higher model. That leads me to believe that the individual crossover selection is on the 20xx/30xx models and not the 10xx models. If I do upgrade next year, I will definitely go for the 20xx or 30xx models unless, of course, I switch to Denon
I'm just gonna stick with 80hz crossover for now and see how that goes.
My next decision is whether I wanna go with FXi Series surrounds and get the Bi/Di or if I'll just go with RTiA1's. I like that the FXi's have a wall mounting template, since I plan to mount the speakers to the wall. Although, the A1's would seem to be more multi-purpose and would sound good in "all channel mode" for music.
You were asking about the model of my Atlantic Technology surround speakers. The wall mount of the speaker actually obstructs the model number on the back of the speaker, but I did a little Ebay digging and found the speakers. They are the 154SR.
According to the AT website the frequency response is:
"Usable = 100hz - 15khz"
"+/-3db = 120hz - 12khz"
So, my Yamaha actually did a pretty accurate job of picking 120hz as the crossover point. I'm impressed. I'll tell you what, when the YPAO is running the test tone, you can clearly hear the lack of low frequency in these surround speakers. I'm sure they were only meant to handle sound effects, etc.
