OK. I'll try both 60 and 80Hz. But, why I get distortion in the DIRECT AND PURE DIRECT mode. In Pure/Direct mode I hear very different, much better dynamic sound and sound a lot better than 2 channel stereo mode. Pure/Direct mode are my regular 2 channel for my music listening. Is it too much bass in these two modes that is coming from my Audyssey. Or should I re-calibrate my system again?

I would try crossing the M80's over at 60Hz or 80Hz instead.


I would try the same. It would ease the work load of the amp.

Would it be necessary to do Audyssey calibration again? Or just leaving as is.

If you ask in regard to just adjusting the crossover then no noeed to run Audyssey again.

Wait a second, you're running Audyssey EQ? Turn it off and see if you like it better.

Also, what volume levels are we talking about here?

Well, we have to reduce the variables--or at least get some more data. Changing the crossover is unlikely to affect distortion, and I have a hard time believing, after thinking on it, that the Emotiva is distorting rather than just shutting down if it can't handle the impedance. There's something else going on here.

Sorry Ken. I thought you’d know I was just poking fun at the Audyssey Posse.
