    Default What benefits if any

    I currently have my bass through the sub pre-out. My receiver has a fixed cross over at 90 (last year yammy). I was thinking of going the speaker line out instead. Setting my fronts to large and sub to none. Would this allow me to obtain a better sound. ( I am not looking for "try it and find out" answers)
    I know my 8's can handle more than 90 and above. I would like to know who else uses this method and what they have gained from it.

    Thanks

    The mids will be muddier. I'd leave it alone.

    Because now instead of trying to reproduce frequencies from 90hz up to the tweeter x-over point, they are trying to produce the lower octaves as well, and in turn, there is more drain on your receiver/amp trying to reproduce the lower frequencies, so it gets muddy. It may sound 'louder' but you lose clarity in the process.
