    Hi

    I am seriously considering the Minx 21/11 setup for my lounge. However, I already have an MJ acoustics Reference 100 sub (Mk1). Its a very nice sub, and I would like to keep it if possible.

    I would like to use it with the minx but not sure how well it will work. Its range is 13hz to 120hz. This exactly matches up with the Minx... (which go down to 120Hz)

    Has anyone used a different sub with the Minx (with crossover set at 120Hz)? Anyone any idea if this would work?

    Planning on running them from a marantz 1603, by the way

    Thanks

    Alex

    Any sub will work with any speakers so no issues with your proposal.

    I realize it will technically work, but will it sound good? I always thought it was best to have some "overlap" (i.e. set crossover at something like 140Hz).

    Its unlikely it would be easy for me to test this so interested to know how people are runnign their Minx's!

    There will be some overlap since the minx will roll off below 120Hz and the sub will roll off above this as well.
