    I find that 40 Hz, which is the lowest crossover point on my 16-46 PC+ is too high. 40 Hz is that of a frequency which really is ear-deafning and annoying. Since my mains (Canton Ergo RC-L) extend very well down to 30 Hz (even lower but at very low volume), I want only that real bottom to be filled, and nothing else.

    Is there a low level way to set crossover to 30 Hz? Build an external filter or something?

    Any input greatly appreciated.

    Do you maybe know of any schematics or a ready to build kit or something which might be useful?

    An external crossover is the only way I can think of to get the results you seek.

    What is the -3 dB point of the Canton's?

    You're running speaker level inputs into the sub, and running the mains from their? Or you're just using the natural roll off of the mains and trying to match that to the sub?

    Can't, don't want to, use the digital crossover in your receiver or pre/pro?

    A lot of pro companies make external crossovers. Behringer, Rane, Symetrix, etc.
