Just got my m3's connected and I'm in a jam deciding on what crossover setting to use. My a/v receiver settings are 200/100/80/50 and can't be shut off. My sub can be changed anywhere between 40 and 120 or bypassed. What should I set it at?

Hi spdracer,

Out of those 4 settings I would try 100hz on the a/v receiver and set the crossover on the subwoofer itself to bypass.

Strange that they do not give you a setting for 80hz which is typically the best starting point for most speakers.

My M3 are set at 80hz. The best so far.
