    Looking for some guidance on speaker (large or small) and crossover settings for my HK AVR430 for DVD's. Also settings for music if I use the Logic 7 feature. I know it is best to experiment on your own but I have done a bunch and now just tone deaf.

    Here is details of speaker:

    Fronts: Dahlquist QX10's
    Center: " QX50
    Surrounfs: " QX6's
    Older Yamaha sub

    Thanks for your help.

    Start with approximately one octave above the speaker's limit. Ex: If the speaker is rated to 50Hz, try 100Hz and I'd also try 80hz just to see how it sounds.

    Turn the sub's x-over all the way up, if you cannot disable it, and let the receiver handle the blend.
