Hey everyone, I gots a question. If your speakers bottom frequency is 80hz, would you set your sub to 80hz? Would you just set the sub at lowest frequency? Thanks in advance!

A lot depends on how far down your mains are at 80 hz and the slope of your xover.

Generally, you would want the maions and sub to blend fairly smoothly.

Of course, if I were using a HT receiver, I'd let the receiver do the thinking and either set the sub ti the higheast frequency possible or, and this is the preferred method, bypass the sub's xover entirely. Some subs have a switch to allow this. At least my Velodyne does.
