I too read that same part in the manual and I think most here passed over the part -

it may not be detected by the automatic speaker setup. In
this case
and shortly following - select its
highest crossover frequency, and then try running the
automatic speaker setup again


I will stand by my original post. It will deliver the smoothest transition...

But that would be the second option offered to the OP. If the original (snapping the cross) did not work, then one would adjust up and try again. Either way,,,,we got the OP to play with his equipment!!

Which post do you mean?

This one?

Or, this one, where you said to ignore the first one?

If you are back to the first recommendation, can you explain how that delivers the smoothest transition? Don't you simply lose the LFE frequencies above 80Hz along with the frequencies in the main channels between 80Hz and the crossover set in the processor?

In you're original post you say, set the crossover to 80Hz on the sub. That is not the highest crossover frequency on the back of the sub. The OP will loose sub performance by doing that. Once again, bass management should be controlled by the AVR and not by the sub. How can you stand by you're original post? You are giving incorrect info on how to set a sub up.

When did you become an audio engineer. That IS the proper way to set it up but I will argue no longer with all of you audio "professionals" Once again, bass management should be controlled by the AVR and not by the sub.

Here's to laughing at you.

It's called common sense. Even the manual contradicts what you are recommending to the OP, maybe you should ask the ones who designed and engineered the sub. You have been called out because you're wrong. Suck it up and move on Real people admit to their mistakes

Actually it IS YOU that is wrong. But since you are so blinded by your know it all attitude you will never see it.

I was attempting to answer the OP's question with the best solution, which in fact is correct. You came along with another and refuted that for some reason. Actually it's time for you to do some research and move along until you find the correct solution/answer rather then mistakenly telling an industry professional (design/engineer), who does this kind of thing for a living that they are wrong.

So admit your mistake and come back when you find the correct information.

You don't need a degree to figure out you're recommendation is WRONG. And I wouldn't be touting you have one when you tell someone the INCORRECT WAY to set their sub up. It's so black and white that the OP needs to set his crossover on the back of the sub all the way up and handle bass management with his AVR.

And if you read a few post back the correct information which is what I have been saying all along is copy and pasted from the manual.


And on a side note, you tell him how to set it up in post #3 (which is wrong) and then in post #12 you say ignore all posts here including my other ones.

Incorrect to you, not to professionals.

Here is a quote from you. Instructions/directions from both Audyssey and the sub manufacturer... Setting the crossover all the way up is what it says in the manual and the correct way. Man, what are you missing

Loves2Watch - Any chance you will explain why you believe the OP should set the crossover to 80Hz on his sub?

Because that is the IDEAL setting to use for this particular sub/receiver combination. Proven through testing, and real world use.
