    I would like to know the best crossover settings for my amp and sub if anyone can help. Here's my equipment:

    Yamaha 640SE amp
    Mordaunt-Short Avant 906 fronts, 905c and 902 rears
    MS 308 sub.

    As they are full range speakers, they take care of some of the low frequencies. Does this mean I should set my sub at a fairly low crossover point?

    Also, there is a phase switch on the sub which can be set to either 0 or 180 - which will be the better option?

    Any help would be great, thanks

    I have 914,905 & 506 with an MS909 and still set at 80hz for films- I just prefer it that way. You could try a 50hz crossover though which would clip the bottom off the 906's but would be the limit for the centre and rears.

    Thanks for that, would this setting be on the amp or sub?

    Mine is on the amp- I prefer to set it there and then just max the sub crossover.
