Do my Klipsch speakers have a crossover to filter the highs to the tweeters and low to the woofers?


There are 2 sets of wire hookups on the back of the RF-3II's and i think on the back of the RC-3 center channel but they are bridged together. is one set for the high freq and the lower set for mid freq's? My stereo has a low freq filter for my subwoofer, and my subwoofer has one in the amp as well. in my reciever options i have my center channel set to mid to high freq range and the fronts set to low-mid to high freq range. do i need more equip to seperate the mids from the highs before it gets to the speakers?


I think my reciever is Onkyo TX-SR674, alil old but it is getting the job done. haven't noticed a big dif yet without the 'deep color'

I am not sure how you are interpreting Bass Management in your AVR, but in a multichannel configuration using your klipsch speakers, keep those jumpers in place. Your speakers are of a "2 way" design which sends the highs to your tweeters, the mid range to your woofers, and depending where you set your crossover in the AVR and having your speakers set to "Small" (usually between 60 Hz and 80 Hz, for your mains) the lower end to your subwoofer to make it a "3 way" Home Theater.


{EDIT: I notice you have an Onkyo so instead of "Small," you need to make sure you aren't running your speakers as "Full Range," and go in and set a crossover for them.}

Cool, thanks guys good to know i'm doing it right


i dont have my sub hooked up right now cuz i have not-cool neighbors.


I have full range on my fronts and ~100hz up going to my center and surrounds

Its not very powerful on the low end but still sounds great compared to by tv speakers

In that scenario, below 100 Hz from your center and surrounds will be sent to your RF-3s. It sounds like you have it set up correctly given you don't have a sub.
