    I have read various posts regarding using the 40 and 60 hz crossover points when setting the speakers to large. I can't understand how this differs from using 80 or 100 hz, and setting the speakers to small. Some people have said that when setting the speakers to large, the crossover is only a low pass filter? Can someone explain this. Also, how does this apply when listening in two channel mode?

    I am not entirely familiar with this receiver but the setting manages both high and low pass, lowering the setting will not change this. Bass below the x-over is sent to the sub, and everything else is sent to the other speakers. I believe the x-over is disabled if you set the mains to large (often the case with most receivers I've setup). This may be different for the H/K. It applies the same in 2ch, unless you use a "source direct" or analog bypass mode, which normally ignores bass management (x-over) and tone settings.

    Here is my understanding (atleast it's how mine works).

    The receiver has (2) speaker settings, LARGE or SMALL.

    When you select SMALL, you can then select the crossover point of either 80 or 100. All information below that selected point is sent to the sub, everything above to the speakers.

    When you choose LARGE, you then must select either 40 or 60. Irregardless of your choice, ALL information is sent to the L/R main speakers, and the sub only gets the info below the selected crossover point.

    Kind of weird huh?

    Hi Joe:I own the H/K AVR510 and this is what I did.I use DefTech BP 10's as my mains so I set them and my rears to the small setting.I believe that I then set the crossover to 80hz so that all info below the 80 will go directly to my sub...works great!
