Yes, the freq. below 120 hz will be sent to the sub, if you have so set the receiver. With that high a crossover, you might hear some directionality of the higher frequencies (those closer to 120hz). You will just have to try it that way and see (or hear) if that is ok with you, it won't hurt anything. Have fun. Dennis

According to the Klipsch specs, the Quintet III speakers are rated at 120/125Hz; thereby, your crossover setting is about right. These are "small" speakers and so all bass information below 125Hz should be send to the subwoofer. I am interested in how the system sounds with the crossover set that high - that is about as high as I would go in any system without worrying about directional sound issues as mentioned in the previous reply.
