I just installed M2v3 for front DSX Heights. My Denon 4311 set the crossover to 60hz, but I think that is a bit low. What's a good crossover setting for these speakers?

Thanks.

Probably 100Hz.

Hi VoR,

If you mounted the M2s against the wall, they'll benefit from significant reinforcement of bass frequencies (adjacent surfaces), so you might try 80 Hz. I think 100 Hz is too high if they're mounted to a wall.

I just read the title of your post, so the M2v3's are the in-wall/on-wall models. I'd still suggest 80 Hz.

Peter, the crossover setting made by the receiver indicates that the speaker in your setting(i.e., on the wall)had enough bass capability(helped by the room reinforcement)to justify a 60Hz crossover. The fact that it was capable of 60Hz doesn't necessarily mean that this is ideal and it should be left there. With your fine sub, it should be given more of the load and less given to the M2s. As Alan suggested, 80Hz should be suitable.

Will 100hz give it a cleaner sound or provide any advantages?

No. Pick whatever sounds good to you.

but he is losing bass response since they are not mounted in wall/on wall. I would make an enclosure that matches the drywall and simulates them being installed within the wall per design.
