    I was told by MJA that turning the pro50 x-over to the maximum 270Hz(?) disables the x-over.

    I've always had it like this but when measuring with an spl meter I noticed considerable output above the amps crossover??

    X-over was set to 80Hz and there was loads of output on the 160Hz+ tone?


    At the moment I have it cascading with the sub set to 80 or 100Hz as well as the amp.


    Any ideas

    Cheers

    Do you have a high level connection as well as low level?

    High level's useful if you have an integrated amp taking care of hi-fi duties, it does interfere with movies though (so hi level gain turned right down for movies)

    What amp do you have? does it have a specific crossover or can you set it?

    its a Denon 2802 with 80/100/120Hz.

    I think I really need to disconnect the main speakers and test the sub above the x-over. Dont think there is an easy way to turn off the mains without disconnecting the binding posts.

    Thanks
