brentutk Posted March 4, 2006 Share Posted March 4, 2006 Advice please: My current audio set-up is as follows: Yamaha RX-V540 receiver 85 watts X 6 No adjustable crossover Has Large and Small speaker options. Small Option crossover is 90 hz. Has "Main, Sub, or Both" LFE options. Klipsch Reference Speakers RF-3 Front L & R Speakers- 37 Hz to 20 kHz RB-25 Rears- 49Hz to 20kHz RC-3II Center- 62 Hz to 20kHz Here's my dilemma. A Mirage S12 will be arriving soon and this has caused me to notice a flaw in my set-up. As you can see, my receiver has no adjustable crossover. My RF-3's are great full range speakers that I will be severly limiting if I use my receivers "small" setting and/or send the LFE signal to only my sub. This will limit them to no lower than 90 hZ. What would you do? I COULD keep them set to "Large" and send the LFE signal to both the Sub and the RF-3's. Will this be adequate? Will this be base overkill? I could also set them to small, send the LFE ONLY to the sub and let the S12 handle the show. Would I be wasting the the 4 Eight inch copper woofers in my RF-3's? I could buy a new receiver with a user selectable crossover. I really don't want to do this as I like everything else about my receiver and I don't want to spend more money. Please give me your advice. Note: I realize in sitting down and typing this that I have basically answered my own question but I would still greatly value some feedback and advice.
