    I just sold my 320 to a coworker, and decided to go for the next in line, the 325. One of the advantages that I bought it for is the ability to change the crossover for individual channels.

    My sub is a Hsu VTF-2, which has good extension (25-100Hz) and a "Defeatable, true 24 dB per octave crossover, continuously variable from 30-90 Hz." (from their website) By defeatable, I'm assuming that it can be overridden by any bass management from the receiver, but if that's not the case, I'd like to know. Assuming I will be setting all 7 speakers to small (6 JBL S26 & 1 JBL S-Center), what should I set the crossover(s) to?

    Here's the pertinent info on the speakers, from the JBL website:
    • Frequency Response (–3dB): 48Hz - 20kHz
    • Crossover Frequency(ies): 2000Hz
    • Frequency Response (–3dB): 75Hz – 20kHz
    • Crossover Frequency(ies): 800Hz, 3200Hz

    Anybody that's already played with this on their 325 or 525, let me know how you've been doing it as well.

    If those JBL specs are honest, I'd set the satellites to 80HZ, and the center to 100Hz. These are still the only two options for 'small' speakers on the 325, yes?
