    crossover issue vs. full range... help the newbie

    I recently moved my boston micro 90X speakers up to the my 2.1 bedroom theater as the main speakers, the bostons play down to around 120 hertz, and my Klipsch Sub-10 plays up the about 120 Hertz. The problem is that my yamaha receiver (R-V1105) doesn't have a variable crossover point for the sub and main speakers. Assuming that the crossover points built into the receiver would create a hole somewhere between 80 hertz and 120 hertz when asking it to treat the front speakers as "small", can I just run the boston speakers as full range? I worry about hurting the bostons with bass notes that they simply can't handle. What do you think? Thanks!

    You could option the sub off on the receiver so the LF isn't routed to the sub-out, then run the L/R main pre-outs to the sub's L/R inputs and let the sub's xover filter out the mid/highs. This way the receiver doesn't limit the LF to 80Hz.
