Crossing over at 80Hz? In case the amps are sweating deep bass.....(?)

Mark, should I not be using a crossover of 80hz anymore and sending the LFE to the sub? Keep in mind that my Denon only has one crossover setting, so lowering it would affect all speakers in my setup.

Hey Randy:
No, just the opposite. I thought by some chance your amps were working extra hard because for some reason, your pre-pro had all the speakers set to "large".

I know it was a real basic question, but it seems like you're trying everything else to figure it out so I thought I'd throw it out there just in case....

aaahhhh I see, sorry for the confusion. I still have my Denon set to 80hz crossover and all speakers to small. However, I could set my 80's to large and I think the amp would have no issues.

By the way, Emotiva sent me two new amps yesterday, should get them tomorrow. Also, received one today for my center channel.

Is this what you meant to post ? Wouldn't the amp have to push more signal out (the bass below 80 Hz) to achieve the same SPL ?

I still think taking out those earplugs is your best bet. I'm sure Mark agrees with me on this.

Yes John, that is what I was saying. I most likely will not do this, however, it is my understanding that these amps would have no problems with that load. I believe many people that use seperates run 80's to large, but I could be wrong.

Anyway, I should have my new amps in the next day or so, and then I will know if the problem I've been having is resolved.

ps: thanks for responding using your 20bps connection.

Even if you ran the M80s at large the Emotiva should be able to handle it. I think you just ran into some bad luck with your amps. Lets hope the new ones will do the trick.

It seems unlikely from reading this thread that both amp modules would have the same issue.

But here's hopin' I'm wrong!....

It is possible that the same amps came of the mfg line at the same time and placed in inventory, then shipped out to me, but not sure.

Hooked up the 3rd mono to my center last night and watched Taladega Nights. I now most of you won't believe this, but it did seem that the center performed better and the dialogue was easier to understand. It seemed to have better detail.

I'm a beliver in what you heard..I had been using an Onkyo 801 as my AVR. Recently I purchased a 5-channel amp and now I'm using my Onkyo as a pre/pre and oh my gosh imho it made a wondeful difference in all 5 channels. For me its like a veil was removed from my speakers. I have my M80's set to large - I hear better seperation of sound with that setting on my system compared to small setting.

VP 150
QS 8's
Onkyo pre/pro
Halo A51 5-channel
