    I need some help with setting up crossover frequency for my yamaha speakers 5.1. I have a Onkyo TXSR-308 Home theater receiver and Yamaha 5.1 Speakers model number NS-AP2600. What is the correct cross over frequency I set the onkyo to for the speakers? Any help on this would be great. Thanks.

    You don't mention having a sub. If you don't have a sub then set the mains to 'large', which in effect means there's no crossover. If you do have a sub, then set the mains to small, and set the crossover at 100hz (since the 2600's have a frequency response starting at 90hz, and there's a slope involved in the crossover setting). It couldn't hurt to also try 120hz and compare the two to see which one you like more.

    I have a Yamaha sub and it's at 60Hz and the speakers on the 2600's are 90Hz so Which setting in the onkyo do I set the cross over setting to?

    What's at 60hz? The dial on the back of the sub?
    What do you mean by that?

    The speakers I have are 90 hz and the sub is 60hz theirs only a volume control on it and a on off switch. Again I ask what is the cross over on my onkyo TX SR-308 I set the speakers to? I have small speakers which those Yamaha's are.

    I'd set the crossover to 120. Even though the speakers are rated down to 90 hz they only have 2 1/2 inch drivers. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Change the receiver crossover to 100 or 120, and set the sub crossover to 'off', 'out', or it it doesn't have either of those, whatever the highest setting is. If you are using the receiver to control the crossover then you don't want or need the sub doing anything.
