Anyone know which brands of AVR's allow you to set crossover frequency individually for front/center/etc? i.e. not just an adjustable frequency that applied to all speakers that are set to small? That way I can cross my front towers over at 50, and cross my surrounds over at 90hz for instance.

Denon and Marantz allow that. I set each speaker crossover where I want it. I currently have a Denon 4520.

Aside from perhaps the cheapest / most basic AVRs, all of the newer receivers let you do that.


Popular mainstream brands include Denon, Yamaha, Pioneer, Marantz, Onkyo and Sony.
I've been looking at Yamaha receivers (since I currently have one and have been happy with its performance), and they seem to have adjustable crossover that affects all speakers, not individually adjustable.

My mid-level Marantz SR6003 was around $1,000 MSRP, circa 2009? and has a global setting, meaning only one crossover can be selected for all speakers. My newer, lower-end Denon X1000, which I think was $500 MSRP, has the ability to set each speaker individually. It also has Audeyssey MultEQ XT vs. basic MultEQ in the older, more expensive Marantz. As tech trickles down to cheaper models more features become standard.

You may need to look at Yamaha's higher end models, or at a different brand.
I looked at the manuals for their aventage line and still don't see individual crossover adjustment. This is disappointing, as I've always been a big Yamaha fan, and have had nothing but good performance and absolute reliability from the 2 Yamaha receivers I've had. I guess I will have to take a look at Denon.

I bought a Denon X3100W b-stock last weekend and it has this feature.

I apologize for the incorrect information. I was under the impression that adjustable crossover settings per channel (or channel pair) had become more commonplace.

My Sony DH800 from 2009 does this so I would imagine it's commonplace with most receivers these days. Best thing to do if you have a particular model in mind is check the manual.

Harman/Kardon was the 1st AVR brand that had the capability of setting unique X-over frequencies for each loudspeakers. I don't remember the 1st model series but I think it started with 10 series such as AVR310, 510....

Just my $0.02... ;)

Denon for sure.

Probably Onkyo as well.
