My crossovers are set to 80Hz for my speakers and I set the sub to 120Hz.

Re: Cross over ?

Well, if you set the crossover on the receiver to 110Hz and the physical sub crossover to 120Hz then your sub should only receive a signal up to 110Hz. I use the 120Hz because my receiver has a HighPass set for 120Hz even though the crossover is set for 80Hz. When I change the sub to be wide open, 150Hz, I get a sharp drop of about 20db at 70Hz, but set to 120Hz it is pretty flat all the way across.

Oh I see, I misunderstood your post. Of course it makes perfect sense when I go back and read it now. I should have drank more coffee before jumping on this morning.

Re: Cross over ?

Hello,
Just to make it clear say if your Speakers are crossed at 110, your Sub should be set to 110. If set to say 120, there will be a hole in the Frequency Response as the Speakers will stop at a point where the Subwoofer is not taking over.

As to localization, unless you can set your Sub to 80hz, there will be issues of localization. 80hz is pretty much considered the highest point before localization appears. However, with speakers that will not go down to 80hz, you are better off having the Speakers and Sub at the same Crossover.
Cheers,
JJ
