    I was wondering how you guys set the bass mid and treble settings in you receiver? Do you just do it buy ear or some how use an spl meter I have used my spl meter to set each speaker's level but what about the crossover settings for each speaker? is there something on a test disc or what?

    Most people recommend if you can set your receiver at 80hz to set it at that. For me the lowest setting was 100hz to I set my receiver to that.
    Bass/treble are both left at 0.

    I don't touch my tone controls either.

    Crossover frequency is deterimined by what frequencies your speakers can comfortably handle. Figure roughly one octave above what the speaker is rated to. So: With speakers good to 50Hz, start with a 100Hz x-over. YMMV, as there are many factors, so experiment.
