PSW111 and TSi400

Hi! I will like to know what is the recommended crossover frequency. I have it set it up at 80Hz. Should I go lower than 80Hz or higher than 80Hz ? Thanks in advance!

    That’s the typical recommendation but play around and see what works best in your room. That sub is pretty small and the speakers and nearly fully range so I would try it at 50-60hz and see how that sounds. You might find with a lower crossover the lower mid-bass has more punch and the sub has a little more low bass output because not having to cover as wide a ground.

    I will say it really matters what receiver you have. If it’s underpowered then a lower crossover might not work very well...

    Thank you! I have it set up at 60hz now and works great!
