First HT purchase and am trying to make sense of my settings and whether they are corret or not. I have:


Onkyo 606

Polk Monitor 50s for the fronts

Polk CS1 center channel

2 old Bose (don't hate me) speakers for the surround speakers and

the Speaker Company ASW 10 subwoofer.


Ran Audessey and it spat out the following setup:

Sub On

Front and Surrounds are Full Band

enter 60hz

LPF of LFE 80Hz


Does that sound right? The manual for the subwoofer says that the crossover should be at 120 but based on other things I've read here, I've got that maxed and am just letting the receiver handle the crossover. Don't see a crossover setting unless that is what the LFE is.

I don't have an Audyssey receiver, but I would assume LPF of LFE refers to Low Pass Filter of Low Frequency Effects. And that just means your low frequencies are being sent to your sub with a crossover frequency of 80hz. You are correct to set your powered sub's crossover to it's max value, or to turn it off if possible.

Check the Audyssey thread for the setup FAQ.


You want to set the LPF of LFE to 120Hz

Set your mains to 80Hz crossover from Full Band. If you don't you won't be using your sub and it's way better at low freq than the Polk 50's


Anything that gets its +-3dB at below 80Hz, Onkyo sets at "Full Band". Audyssey has been trying to get receiver manufactuers to change this for a while.

Ok, thanks, I'll take a look.
