Any one know if the BK XLS300 MK2 Subwoofer can be set up in a similar fashion to Rel Strata 5 sub? Speakers set to large using Hi/Low level inputs at the same time.
AFAIK, you can do that, but I wonder why would you want to
May I ask why?
I use Arcam A75+/P75+ Integrated/power amps to listen to stereo music and drive the front left/right speakers from the pre outs of my Marantz SR8500 for av use. I am assuming when listening in stereo from the Arcams that the sub volume will need to be different than in av use. I could be wrong I have never tried it. All the subs I have looked at for av/hi-fi use have separate volume controls for the different inputs. The speakers/sub are set up using a sp meter for av use and I don't want to lose these settings. The cht10 does not support simultaneous use of h/low level inputs.
OK, I suggest that you look into this thread:
Nimby suggests a good way to sort this out for little money. I have read some comments regarding the quality of Behringer products, but I can't say until I buy it myself (and this will still take some months..). I know Nimby has one, and has no complaints.
In the same thread, you can read in detail the advantages of line-level, 24dB/octave crossovers
Thanks for the link, it's give me some thing to think about. I already use a BFD on my low level input so I am aware of there products. Am I right in assuming using the Behringer CX2310 for av use you would set speakers to large, sub to no in the av receiver thus sending the lfe channel to the main speakers, set the xover in the CX2310, output to BFD then sub low level input? I can see the advantage in this set up in being able to use the BFD with the stereo output.
Almost. The CX2310 would only act as crossover for your stereo amp and for pure stereo reproduction (that is, between Arcam A75 and P75). For AV, you can still use the internal crossover of your AVR.
Why not use it to replace the xover in your av amp? In my setup there is no where to connect it between the A75/P75. I have the A75/P75 bi-amping the main speakers (Wharfedale EVO 30's), the pre outs from the A75 connect to the P75, A75 handles the bass and the P75 the treble, that leaves the pre outs from the P75 to connect to the CX2310. There is only one low level input on the BFD and sub, so where would I connect the output from the av receiver? Nimby gave the impression he was using it for both stereo and av use?
