    I have a range of 50-150hz for the high cut on my Yamaha subwoofer...

    In the sub manual it recommends setting the high cut to the mains speakers (aka front speakers, right???) minimum reproducile frequency... It says this frequency can be found in the speakers catalog or owners manual...

    Well I found the manual for my two front speakers left/right but am uncertain on the differences in Hz its lists...

    For example my Sony speakers are rated as follows...

    Frequency range = 60Hz - 20,000 Hz

    Cross over frequency = 3000 Hz

    So in the case do I set my hz on the high cut to 60???

    Set the sub woofer high cut to 150 Hz or if possible defeat the subwoofer's crossover. The advice in the subwoofer manual presumes you are feeding the r/l full range signal to the sub and then on to the mains. Most people prefer to use a prefiltered sub-out jack for the sub in which case the sub should not modify it.
