R-12SW + R-15PM

Recommended Posts

Hi, I recently got hold of a R-12SW to go with my R-15PM. So my sub is connected to the speaker with RCA/LFE.

My question is regarding the setup of the sub to work in harmony with the R-15PM and I don't quite understand the Low-pass. Someone told me to just put it at max(labeled LFE), but couldn't explain any reason behind this suggestion.

Does anyone have experience with setting up a sub like this together with my speakers ? I have a really hard time finding the right setting.

If you set the crossover frequency in your receiver, it will be doing the same thing as setting the low pass filter on your sub so it's redundant.  Set it to it's highest frequency and let your receiver handle the job.

The R-15PM go down to around 65 Hz so you should set the the low pass dial around the 9-10 o'clock position so that the sub handles everything under 65 Hz. You could set the dial a little higher than that if you wanted--it's often recommended you that you set it around 90 Hz for bookshelf speakers which would be around the 11-12 position--but since the R-15PM don't offer any crossover controls you'll be overlapping the frequencies a bit.
