    hi all,

    Running the KK Q125LCR with the Onkyo 876. What should the cross over frequency be set too? After running setup it was full range but I have changed this to 120htz. Is that ok or should it be 80htz THX.

    120hz seems a little high, I would try 80-90hz.
    Best bet though is to try several different cross overs and use the one that sounds best.

    Another question, there are 4 connections on the back of the speakers, I have used the top two black and red for connection. Is this correct or am I missing something?

    There are two sets of connections for biamping/biwiring. If you are not doing this one connection is fine just make sure there are jumpers between the connectors.

    Yes as the bridge plates have physically connected both - and both + together respectively.
    There is a KK thread somewhere on the speaker forum, it might be worth finding it, lots of useful info.

    After having a play about between 60 and 70 (usually had it at 80Hz), I settled on 70Hz as the system sounded a bit thick at that point with the sub doing it, so I let the speakers do it, and that sounded more balanced. The speakers had decent output at 70Hz in my room.
