That makes since it's sounds awesome I just set everything at 120 I can't tell if the sub is localized. It will do till I get the rest of my front stage to match my SVS sub

Re: Cross over ?

Hello,
Given the popularity of the Quintet Series, you should be able to recoup a decent amount of your initial expenditure on the Used Market when you are able to upgrade. SVS makes fantastic Subwoofers and I am so glad you are enjoying yours.
Cheers,
JJ

Re: Cross over ?

Personally, I think I'd raise the sub crossover as high as you can. Don't know much about the Quintets, but I'd imagine they start to roll off long before the rated 120. If you can get your sub up to 140, 160 or 180 before localization sets in...???? Never hurts to experiment.

The closer your sub(s) are to the front mains, the higher you can set the lowpass crossover before you begin to be able to localize the sub. If you are only using one sub and can still pinpoint it using this method, try placing it as close to the center as you can.

This is especially helpful when the mains are unable to comfortably reach down to 80hz.
