Hi all, hope you can help.
I have a Denon AVR-1911 and Boston acoustics Soundware 5.1 XS
ignoring the written spec regarding the frquency response of the speakers for now
the sub does not have a direct input - the max i can set the x-over on the sub is 180hz
after running audessey the avr is setting the xover for the satellites to 200hz
on paper (i know i should ignore this) the satellites are rated down to 150hz (manual says to set the avr to 120hz)
should i trust the denon (200hz) or override and set to say 120hz
based on the current (200hz) setting and my understanding of crossovers......
the satellites will be 3db down at 200 hz and the sub will be 3db down at 180hz - leaving a bit of a hole
i've read that it's bad so set the crossover lower than the reported as audessey wont correct below the detected roll off
has anyone had a similiar experience, ignored and set to a lower x-over and found the sound is better?
thanks in advance
