    Hey guys ive been doing some research about speaker settings but i some doubts r still unanswered. First of all how should i configure the Hz of each speaker? This r the speakers

    Polk Audio monitor 70 fronts
    Polk Audio monitor 30 back surr
    Polk Audio monitor 4 surr
    Polk Audio CS3 center

    I would really like to know how to set them cause well its my fathers sound system n he has them all in full band plus the sub so its way too much bass the sub is a velodyine DLS-3500R it has a crossover low pass filter that goes from direct to 40hz passing by 80hz. Also the recievers is a onkyo 605 with a lpf of lfe thing. oh n the sub is connect via a digital cable idk how its called

    So whats the best settings for this?? and well if u can i would really like some bases, some reasons cause my father is a hard-headed guy hehe

    THX guys

    Did you guys run the Audyssey automatic room setup and eq?

    I would set the fronts to 80 and the center and surrounds to 100 as a starting point. Set the sub woofers cross-over knob to it's highest setting.

    Even though the Monitor 70's are pretty big speakers setting the cross-over to 80 (or 60 for music) lets the sub woofer do what it's designed to do. Handle the low frequencies. It also takes a load off the receiver as the low frequencies are harder to drive then the mid and high frequencies.

    Sorry the front are monitor 60 not 70 hehe... So the cross-over on the sub should be set to the highest, and the one the receiver, the lfp to lfe how should it be set?
