    As in, I would like to be able to set mains kinda low (40, 60 Hz.) and the center/surrounds to 80 Hz. I assume you can do this.

    The other question is, when you flip over to 2-channel/pure direct, etc. - will it automatically turn the crossover off? When watching movies, I would desire to have the mains being crossed over at 40, 60 Hz., but when I listen to 2-channel music, things will go to full range (Klipsch F3's, pretty good bass response).

    My speakers are on the way and I need a receiver now (my Sony STR-DE675 needs to be retired, might use it as a computer speaker rig [​IMG] )

    You cannot do it with the 2805, not even the 3805. The XO is for all speakers. You can do it with Sony ES, not sure about the DE's.

    You can do it with HK 635 also, by speaker group anyway, i.e left and right as a pair, center individually, right and left surround as a pair, and back surrounds as a pair.

    I think it may also store different crossovers by input or maybe stereo/surround mode. I know it will store different levels by surround mode.

    I believe the way to achieve that would be to set the mains to large and the center to small. When the mains are large, then you can set the LFE to LFE + mains and that gives full sprectrum to the mains while allowing the sub to kick in at the appropriate point. I just did this yesterday with my 2805. Previously, I was set at small all the way around.

    YMMV

    I believe most any HK can do it. At least down to the 335

    The only things that have triple crossover is HK, Outlaw 950 and that Sony that was mentioned. Even the HK 230 had it when I demoed it. Not sure if the 130 did though.

    Hk refers to it as a quadruple crossover I think. Not sure what that exactly means but it does mean that you can adjust the crossover on many different speakers independently
