    • In theory, 30 hz crossover from La scalas would be the speakers running in full range with a notable gap between LA scala bottom range and the subwoofer.   I cross my subs at 40 hz with my jbls.  Any higher, I get an additive, summed effect on the bass that is too prominent in certain frequencies.  I'm sure you are aware, but it would seem your wreaking havoc comment may have to do with phase cancelations? Those sealed subs you have I would think would have a smooth handoff to and from the speakers when positioned and dialed in properly? 100 hz might cause issues with boominees and location perhaps.  Lot of room between 30 hz and there though.... Just my thoughts. 
    • Remember, depending on the slope of your low pass xover, the sub will play up almost another octave. I am crossing my 15" HSU subs at 30 Hz with my LS IIs, subs located in the corners behind the speakers. This is a perfect match in my room and system. 100 Hz would wreak havoc with what the LS does so well on it's own. At least that's my opinion and I'm sticking with it.
    • If sounds good is... congrats.
    • For all you folks who are concerned with power you can use a 300 watt amp on this all day long if played within reason. But a general rule of thumb is actually to pair a speaker with 150 percent of its rms rating for best performance it does this by having greater control of the driver, reducing distortion, and preventing clipping in your amp by having the power to drive your speakers as loud or hard as you want. These would do great with 125-150 watts per channel. My 105 watt per channel denon was on the low end of what was acceptable, it lacked bass authority, I’d say 125-140w is the lowest power that will drive the rp600m well to reference levels.
    • I have had a pair of rf-7 and they are some of the worst sounding speakers I’ve owned. There is a distinct point of origin from the midrange and less so with the highs. Danny explains their shortcomings very well here.  some folks just don’t get that speaker manufactures won’t put in the time to design a speaker as good as it could be made or with high quality parts until you get into the several thousand dollar mark. If you want to avoid this, and yet still get a large portion of that quality there is no reason you can’t open this little speaker up and make some changes. Very easy, fun and a learning experience. Best of all the end result is your proud of what you have created. I have a pretty little sleeper klipsch rp600m that smoke nearly anybody else’s out there.  can’t recommend the work, knowledge and offerings of gr research enough!
