    Hi have a Denon 2802 amp, and an active subwoofer is plugged into the subwoofer output port.

    Can someone please suggest a crossover I should select on the amp's setup? At the moment I have it on the default setting (85Hz I think) which is the lowest value out of the options. Is that right for a subwoofer?

    Thanks.

    It depends what frequency your other speakers go down.

    Normally setting ALL speakers to SMALL will send all bass below 80hz to the sub.

    Then set the crossover on the sub to its maximum as the Denon wont be sending bass above 80hz to the sub.

    cheers

    Hello all!
    Using the Avia test disc & my spl meter I ended up with the amp crossover set to 120Hz, with all speakers set small.
    Just done it this weekend as I changed my centre speaker.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers, Paul.

    Doesn't setting the subwoofer to 120hz make it obvious where the bass is coming from? Isn't bass directional above 100hz? Does anyone know what crossover SMALL setting equates to on a Sony DB925?
