m3's and crossover dilemma - 09/10/10 08:59 AM

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.

actually after further investigation,there is a setting for 80 on the a/v receiver. Post will be edited

Try 80hz then.

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

And set your sub to bypass....
