I’d like to gather some opinions (and I’m sure there will be many) regarding speaker crossover levels on the receiver.
I’m running a Denon AVR-X4400H, two Rotel RB-981 poweramps into two Focal Aria 948 fronts. Off the main receiver I have two large rears (Wharfedale Diamond 9.5), 4x Klipsch in-ceiling atmos overheads and one Klipsch RP-450C center. Lastly, two SVS-PB2000 subs to fill out the bass. I know, it’s a mismatched monstrosity, but it works beautifully in my space.
My question is: Should the Focal Aria 948’s be set to small, even though they’re capable of reaching down to 37Hz? Also, should they be crossed over at 80Hz, as the general opinion states?
Then also, how about my rears, they’re meant to reach down to 30Hz? Small/Large/80Hz?
I understand that experimentation is the best way to dial things in, but I’d be happy to go with good advice too and work from there. There are much smarter people on here than I am, so would love to know what you all think.
