Been out of the audio for awhile. Looking to re-setup my system. Looking for some crossover advice.


My center is SP-C22 and front's are SP-FS52 FHL and FHR and Left/Right Surround are Energy Take Classics.
My receiver is Denon AVR-S730H
Sub is Klipsch Sub-12HG Synergy Series 12-Inch 300-Watt Subwoofer

The standard starting point is 80Hz. Start there, play around with it, and see what you like best. It's not really an exact science -- you just gotta use the ol' ear-o-meter and chest-o-meter.

A quick google for extension specs says:
- SP-FS52 - 40Hz +0/-?dB
- SP-C22 - 55Hz +0/-?dB
- Energy Take Classics - 115Hz +0/-6dB

I'd use 80Hz for the mains, 80 or 90Hz for the CC speaker, and try settings between 120 and 140Hz for the surrounds.

I remember hearing (perhaps it was on an Audioholics youtube vid) that changing the crossovers too much between speakers on a single setup could have adverse effects. Any truth to that or is it just bunk?

This.

If you have any voice clarity complaints with that center speaker, you can try 100, 120 or even 150Hz...some people find that can help.

I don't know how common this issue actually is, but I guess there's a possibility that the AVR can't correctly process the combination of different crossover settings. In that case, the OP should consider trying out various combinations of settings...
- all speakers the same; vs.
- LR - C - surrounds; vs.
- LCR - surrounds,
...and going with the combination that sound best to him.
