Thanks grant. I am not fully understanding the xover,I have an onkyo 707 and I have the option of full band or selecting a xover point. Not sure what you mean using 100hz as xover? thanks for any help you can give me.
When you set it to full band or what have you, you open up the option of bass mix as being
"??? + LFE"
with the latter, the sub only gets discrete LFE from movies.
With the former, the sub gets the same signal as the mains. You need to set the bass mix as "both" to get an option for a low pass filter on the sub.
I don't know enough about Onkyos to tell you definitively.
I recently received my emp set-up, e55, e56c.,es1010 sub, e55w surrounds. Overall I am very pleased with the emp speakers. I am having one problem though, I am having a hard time gettinthe sub and mains to blend properly. they sound boomey or tubby in the mid bass region. How are you guys setting the crossover, levels, etc? any help would be very appreciated. Thank you.
Examine your subwoofer, and also mains placement.
I run my e55tis large, with 100hz crossover, but that might not work in your room and placement.
I am very happy with the speakers and posted a detailed review with pics on avs forum comparing them to my monitor 70's and cs2 setup.
