I believe that after reading the threads here, consulting the manuals for the speakers sub and receiver, reading the Hartley book, and talking with some friends, I have the proper settings. I'll know for sure tonight when I unpack all those boxes and hook everything up
Could someone verify this for me or make any additional suggestions?
Denon AV Receiver 3802
Selectable Crossover at 80/100/120 Hz
If Front speakers are set to LARGE with the sub connected, I am given a choice of LFE or LFE + Main for bass output.
Floor Standing Fronts: RTi70
The stereos, center and surrounds are all wired to their respective speaker outs. (Biwiring comes later!)
The sub is connected to the subwoofer pre-out on the receiver with a single RCA cable.
The RCA cable is split at the other end with a Y adaptor and connected to the L/R Line Level ins on the subwoofer.
Front Speakers: LARGE
Subwoofer: NONE (as per the 650 instruction manual) This will allow me to set the cossover manually with the dial on the 650?
Crossover and LFE settings: NOT SET because this option isn't available when I have the subwoofer set to NONE
This way seems right. But if there are any suggestions or reasons why something else might be better I'd love to hear it.
Is it better to connect the subwoofer with speaker cable?
Would it be better to connect the subwoofer to the Left and Right Stereo Pre-Outs with 2 RCA cables? Or would this interfere with the Speaker Outs?
Thanks for your input!
