This may have been asked before and I apologize if it has. I have a Marantz AV560U Pre/pro, Paradigm Mini Monitors/CC-350/PS1000. Since the Marantz crossover sits at 100hz I was thinking of getting a Paradigm X-30 to bring it down in the 60-80hz range(Some extra $$ to spend also a reason). So I went into a local dealer to inquire and he talked me out of it. He began to go on about 3rd order electro/24db slope(guess my Marantz crossover is the same as that of the sub), and how I should set my subs crossover at 50-60hz range so that the sound from my mains and from my sub would be 0db(from the graph that he drew). I always thought that you should set your subs crossover as high as possible and allow the crossover of the pre/pro/receiver control? Any input would be appreciated.
