    Can someone tell me what the x-over point is when you select small as the speaker size? The owners manual gives refrence to 100Hz as i.e. but does not give an actual x-over point. I assume if you select large, you get a full range signal.

    Thanks!

    I can't say for sure for the AVR200 as I don't own one and can't find a downloadable manual, but on most AV receivers you can set the crossover that best suits your speakers. It is not set by the speaker size setting.

    I agree with you. But, the AVR200 does not offer any crossover options. My AVR300 does.

    The crosover point on the AVR200 is at 200Hz (-typo error should have read 100Hz sorry-) as the manual says. This means that both the SUbwoofer output and the main outputs will be at -6dB and in phase with each other at this point so theoretically they will add to a flat signal.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    As good as the receiver sounds, I would call that really poor bass management.
    Does that mean when the speakers are set to large, every thing receives a full range signal and when set small everything below 200Hz goes to the sub?

    I have read every page in the owners manual and there is no reference to a 200Hz crossover anywhere in the manual. When I read your post, I checked it again. Nothing there.

    Sorry that was a typo on my behalf should have read 100Hz.

    Andy,
