Hi all,

I just bought a new ONKYO TX-NR 1007 receiver and I have Axiom speakers.

These are my speakers:

front and left (M3 v2 Bookshelf Speakers)
centre (VP150 v2 Center Channel Speaker)
Surround left and right (QS8 v2 Surround Speakers)

After running audyssey, audyssey set my speakers to 40Hz. Since I want LFE to go to my subwoofer, what would be the right Hz that I should set my front and surround speakers? I have these choices: 40Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 70Hz, 80Hz, 90Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, 150Hz, or 200Hz.

What would be the best selection for the speakers that I have?

Thanks in advance.

I'd probably go with 70 or 80Hz with that lineup.

Got to agree.

80hz all the way around is the way to go.

I would cross over at 100-120Hz.

Here is the frequency response plot from SoundStage for the M3Ti:

BTW mata7, nice pick with that big Onk. I think the combination of the NR1007 and M3s will be wonderful. The M3s are my favorite Axiom speakers.

In all seriousness, I see your point, but I would point out 2 things: Those measurements are 10 years old, and it's barely rolled off at 80Hz. In fact, from ~90-105, it appears to be a higher hump than the rest of the frequencies, at least until you get up to the very, very highest treble. Further, since the crossovers are not a hard and fast cut off, but a roll off, 80 Hz would probably be a reasonable place to do it.

OTOH, to the original poster, play around with it; use what sounds best to you. 2x6 is right in at least 2/3 of his signature.

To your point, since the cutoff's aren't hard and fast, would you not want to have it set at 100Hz like 2x6 suggested to avoid that roll and keep things level?

Mata, first of all it is not Audyssey that is setting your speakers to small/large and to a 40hz crossover, this comes from the receiver mfg. Anyway, I would go with 80hz for the fronts and center, and 90hz for the Q's.

I have my M80's set to small 60hz, vp150 small 80hz, and Qs8's to small 90hz...

A lot has to do if you ran the setup correctly and followed the Audyssey setup guide on AVSforum.

Yeah, I suppose you could do it that way (and it's worth a shot!), but I think that hump is one of the characteristics (assuming it actually still exists) that people like about the M3s.
