Joe Bentes Posted January 6, 2017 Share Posted January 6, 2017 Hi there, Not sure if this subject has been covered, but trying to go through 1000+ topics and nothing's coming up on search. I have the following for my setup: RF-82 (Front) - 33Hz - 23kHz +/- 3dB RC-52 (Centre) - 67Hz - 23kHz +/- 3dB RS-52 (Surround) - 62Hz - 23kHz +/- 3dB Klipsch SW110 sub. Yamaha RXV-675 for my receiver. I've been trying to figure out the right crossover frequency for my setup and I'm just a little lost/confused. The THX guide recommends 80Hz as the general setting if you have a receiver that allows you to only setup Large/Small speakers, however... from what I've been reading and if I understand it correctly, my fronts are rated for 40Hz, my Centre and Surround are rated for 80Hz (since I can't select 70, 80 is next). I've also read that a better choice is to set to set the front speakers as Large instead of Small and do LFE + Front but at 90HZ. This would ensure that all speakers are pushing out just the right frequencies and all the good stuff goes to the front and sub for clean sound. It looks like because of the wide gap of the front and all other speakers that a receiver that lets you configure the crossover individually would work best, but that's not an option now, so striking the right balance is what I can go for. YPAO is useless lol I like doing my configuration manually; measure the distance of speakers and configure levels with a SPL meter. I'm just trying to figure out what the RIGHT crossover frequency is for this setup so it kicks butt. Sounds are either too much bass and possibly overlap the other sounds (sub configured for bypass by turning the low-pass filter at max and controlling crossover on AVR) which is why I have a hard time making out dialogue and surround effects. I've kind of compensated for this by raising the level in the center channel on the receiver and doing the same for sides. When I turn up the crossover I get too little bass and know I'm missing out on what these speakers can do. I also can't tell the difference between regular DTS and DTS-MA... my receiver supports both so content is not the issue. Just looking for what Klipsch can say about this and others so I can gauge what others who have the same issue are doing. Maybe I'm needing more tinkering around...
