    Just curious!

    High pass?

    Low pass?

    band pass?

    subsonic?

    Also, are there any companies that make active x-overs?

    Andy, my Sony STR-V444ES allows one to dial in crossovers for the front left/right pair, center, and rear left/right pair separately. You can adjust the crossovers in 10-Hz increments in the range of 10-200 Hz or something like that. Sony receivers are excellent in this regard.

    Are the adjustable crossovers only found on high end recievers?

    If you consider Sony's DE line to be high-end, then yes (DE-875 has it) [​IMG] Seriously, aside from Sony there aren't too many low-end receivers that provide useful adjustable crossovers. Some Pioneer models allow you to select from 120, 150 and 200 but that can hardly be considered. When you think that you need a lot of amplification power to drive five speakers crossed over below 40-50Hz it would seem natural that only higher-end receivers should offer this.
