I got a jamo center speaker hooked with along with my other speakers (5.1). The frequency response of the center speaker is 80hz and up. Can i set it to 60hz crossover from the receiver ? If no, why ?
You can, yes, you just probably won't even notice as the speaker can't play down that low very well. Problem is, if your sub is set to 60Hz to match and your center can only play 80+Hz then you are going to be missing the 60-80Hz content from your center. Or it at least won't be reproduced very well since your center isn't capable of it.
Yes you can set the receiver to 60Hz. But there will (probably) be a response dip in the 60-80Hz range, which means that your system won't play as loud in that range. It won't "cut out", and it may not even be that noticeable. I say "probably" because the actual response depends on your room, speaker placement, the actual frequency response of the speakers, etc. But there will likely be a dip. Your system would probably sound better with the crossover set to 80Hz (or 100Hz) in the receiver.
