I can see that if the M80's roll off at 30hz and the sub will start to take over ( so to speak ) around 80hz and keep to volumn level going to say 25hz when it starts to roll itself off. OK, I guess I answered the question in the question and calibrated right, would be awesome. But, then if I have a good sub like that why the 80's whynot get a speaker like the 60's where that much bass in a front is not needed that much specially if the LFE is set to 80hz.

If your receiver allows separate crossovers for each channel there’s no reason you have to set the crossover at 80Hz. I have the crossover on my L/C/R M80s set to 40Hz though I seldom find the need to use the sub for music.

I have my M80s crossed at 60Hz, my VP150 at 90Hz, and my QS8s at 100Hz. Sounds wonderful, but one of them may change soon...

You can also contact Axiom and get resistors to put in before the tweeters that will attenuate the highs a bit.

I came across a post I cannot remember where right now, that Alan replied on. He mentioned they used to send out resistors for the older Ver. 1 M80's. However, since they changesd the driver and crossover settings in the mid/tweeter frequencies for V2 they found it toned down the highs and helped in the mids.
