    Hey guys,

    You guys have more experience than this than I do. What should I have it set to? I'm not sure how low the Titans go, and I'd like it to smoothly crossover onto the sub. I have it set at ~100 on the sub, and 100 on my Onkyo reciever.

    Thoughts?

    You've got double crossovers. Turn your crossover on the sub all the way up. A crossover is a gradual slope not a brick wall so whatever your receiver is sending to the sub above 100Hz is getting filtered again by the sub's filter.

    Have you tried crossing over at 80Hz?

    I have the crossover set to teh max on teh PDR10, and then at 100 on the reciever. I'll give 80 a try.

    Can't hear much of a diff. How low do those titans go? I'm thinking I was just going to leave the whole upper range to the Titans, and let anything below 120 go to the sub.

    I've used the Titans with both 100 and 80Hz x-overs and found that they worked well with 100Hz because they like to be crossed a bit higher.

    I have the old Titans. Not much dif between 80 and 100. Listen for vocal clarity in the presence of strong bass, and then decide which is best for you.
