Hello,



I need some assistance on setting up my system. I am unsure on how crossover works with the fronts and my sub.. I don't think I have it configured properly because right now bass is going to fronts and the sub (same amount of bass).... Heres my setup:


Fronts: Polk Audio RTi A5

Center: Polk Audio CSi3

Sub: Klipsch RPW-10

Receiver: Denon AVR-590



The receiver is configured as follows:


Fronts are set to Large

SW Mode: LFE+Main

LPF for LFE: 120Hz

Crossover Freq: Advanced

Front: 60Hz

Center: 60Hz


The gain on the sub is at half and crossover knob is at 120Hz.



When I change SW Mode to LFE, it sounds like there is hardly any bass at all...



Please help! Thanks.

At the risk of incurring the wrath of more knowledgeable posters, I will the following advice that I received from a similar question recently:


Set the fronts to small

Set the LPF to 80hz

Leave the sub crossover at 120hz


I don't know what the last 3 settings mean because I don't have a Denon receiver. Essentially what you want to do is let the sub handle everything below 80hz (which is what the LPF does). The A5s should be plenty good down to 80.


Try this and if you don't like it, just tweak settings until you find the settings you do like. Remember, it should be all about what you like, not what the "experts" think is correct.
