    I was wondering if anyone can help me with the crossover settings for this system? It is Klispch F-30 System. Here is the spec for each speaker. I have a Denon reciever that allows me to adjust each crossover setting individually as well. Klipsch F-30 System Fronts http://www.klipsch.com/f-30-floorstanding-speaker Center http://www.klipsch.com/c-20-center-speaker Surrounds:http://www.klipsch.com/s-20-surround-speakers-pair Sub:http://www.klipsch.com/sw-450-subwoofer Receiver Denon AVR-791 OK the question I have is can I set the fronts to Large on this system and what is your recommended crossover setting for each speaker and what do I set the sub crossover to? I have heard you should never set the fronts to Large and etc and wanted to see what everyone else thought. Right now I have the crossover set to 60hz and the sub to 80 Hz and Fronts to Large and everything else to small. Should I individually set each speakers crossover or just flat setting? Thanks for all the help.

    The mains should almost always be set to small. On most systems (all o fthem that I'm familiar with) when you set the mains to large none of the lowe end on those channels is sent to the sub, so you aren;t getting the full impact of the sub, and probably not getting as much from you mains since it has to handle too much. Backing up a bit, there's two ways to get the low end signal to the sub (1) everything on the .1 channel gets sent to the sub, and (2) *if* you set a channel to small, it sends the signal below the crossover to the sub. So in your case it's quite possible that you aren't sending the main channel's low end signal to the sub.

    If the crossover on the receiver is set, then set the sub cross over to 'off'' or as high as it allows.
