Re: Sherwood/Newcastle R-972 Official Thread

The bass crossover frequencies set within Trinnov are the arithmetic mean between the measured response of the subwoofer and the individual channel. While this can differ from the THX mandated 80 Hz many of us are used to, in my experience with over 100 different systems, the Trinnov method is completely acceptable.

Thanks, interesting approach but makes sense since I saw people recommend adjusting your subwoofer crossover on the sub itself in order to lower the Trinnov crossover settings.

It does had 90 day warranty. For half price, can't ask for more. Plus, it could be worth the risk.

I bought one of those ebay refurbs and it has been going strong for a few months already. This price is even better since I got mine for $350 with only the 90 day warranty, for the same price I could have the Square Trade warranty on top.

I have never had any problems buying refurbished gear, I have had more problems with new gear.

Wow! Tough crowd here! It's $299! A square trade 3 year warranty is less than $40!

I concur, have purchased all kinds of refurbished gear and have had excellent results, EXCEPT with smart phones. There are four refurbished smart phones of different brands in the family, and all have had reliability issues.
