I am a newbie to HD. I connected my Polk 6750 speakers to an older (1998) Sony receiver. The Polk manual tells me to set the reciever's crossover to 120hz but I don't see any crossover settings on my receiver. Is this a big deal?

I also used an older receiver with the Polk 6750s and it also has no way for me to set the crossover, it's fixed at 90, so I turned down the knob on the back of the sub because at full on, where they tell you to set it, it's 120 and I was getting too much rumble. I also turned down the volume on the sub to med. for the same reason, but you may like the loud rumble. Anyhow, try to look in your receivers owners info and see where its set for crossover and just adjust the dial to where you think it should be.

Is this a big deal?Here's the issue: Polk says your speakers are not equipped to reproduce bass frequencies below 120Hz. If the crossover in your receiver is 120Hz or more, you'll be just fine. If it's lower than that, then you'll get weak bass in the frequencies from 120Hz down to your AVR's crossover. Your receiver manual should tell you where it does the crossover. Then, you'll know if you have a problem. Or not.
