    Hi all,

    I'm interested to see how people use the crossover point of their AV amps for the front speakers.

    So please take a vote on the poll and let us know how you use crossover points.

    110MHz, Blimey you must have really small speakers, either that or you are running a pirate radio station.

    :rotfl: Thats actually what the amp set it on with the auto setup. I have only just got a sound meter and set it up again manually. I am still playing arround to find out what i prefere. Think I am going to have to buy an Avia setup dvd soon for a little help :smashin:

    The AE evo3's are not small speakers :D I have a smallish room.

    I had issues with bass management on 2ch SACD when front speakers were actually small with settings and crossover reflecting that.
    Now have floorstanders at front and use the 'plus' setting on my Pioneer 1011 with 80Hz crossover.
    This gives me full range on the fronts for 2ch SACD with the fronts and the sub both working below 80Hz for everything else.
