Just wanted to know if it was ok to cross my M60's at 60mhz? I normally have it at 80 but was playing around with it at 60 and thought it sounded a bit fuller. Are they safe to cross at 60?

One other question, would my receiver, Yamaha 6080, be capable of handling the M80's?

60hz is totally ok.

60hz is just fine, you could even try 50 if the reeiver will let you hit that odd number. I would also try 40 just to see how it sounds, then go with which ever setting you prefer.

The Yamaha(looks like the 861 is the comparative) should handle the M80s, at worst it would go into protect mode and then you would know that you need to add an amp to run them.

What's odd is when I ran the Yamaha YPAO it set the crossover at 120. After running the YPAO I only kept the distance settings (with a tweek) and nothing else. I tried it a few months with the YPAO settings and now will try a few months without.

That's very odd! Did you do the measurement with all the positions allowed by your system? Check that all the drivers are working.

Agreed. Make sure all the drivers are working, a bad one can throw off the results considerably.

At volume levels which are safe to your ears, put your ear up to each of the midrange and bass drivers with some music playing that contains some decent midbass and bass. Like the others mentioned it looks like its possible that the bass drivers are not functioning correctly (which could be caused by the crossover, faulty driver or loose wiring/connection).

Dan, since you haven't responded on the point, I'll also suggest along with the others that you check that all the bass drivers are in fact operating. The first thing would be to make sure that the connecting strips on the terminals were tight. Even if they are, if you happen to be connected to the top terminals, you might switch to the bottom ones as a test.
