    Default sanity check my configs

    Just wanted a sanity check on my configuration settings.

    H/K AVR 430
    L/R: RTi8 (small, X-over set to 60Hz)
    Center: CSi3 (small, x-over set to 80)
    Surrounds: RTi4 (small, x-over set to 80)
    Sub: HSU VTF-2, set to base extension (LFE, x-over set to "same as surrounds")

    Use: 80% DVD, HDTV, SDTV; 20% Music

    Are my above settings reasonable, or should I also set the RTi8 to x-over at 80Hz to keep them same as center and surrounds?

    Alternatively, based on the specs, I suppose I could go 20Hz lower also on all channels.

    thanks.

    Nice setup. Gotta love that Hsu, don't ya?
    I'd set the x-over at 80 for the 8's.

    Have you calibrated your system yet using a DVD test disk (i.e., Avia) and SPL meter?

    Thanks. I realize I have a modest configuration, but it works well is my modest 13x18 media room.

    Guess, there's not much benefit it lowering the xover for the 8's to 60Hz (it's -3db limit doesn't kick in until about 40Hz; that's why I was asking)?

    The Avia disk is supposedly "in the mail", and I've got my sound meter prepared once it arrives.
