    Evening all does anybody know where 80-100Hz on a REL sub is please there is no marking on the crossover to know where to set this to. Ruark advise setting the crossover on the Sub to 80-100HZ. I have the 0-120 switch but thats to match the bass with the speakers

    The anechoic response of MR1 is flat (+/- 3dB) from 55Hz to 20Khz, although when used in a real room environment with the backs of the speakers sited near to a wall then you will notice a significant lift of the lower frequency with a useful response down to 40Hz. If you require ground shaking bass, then we would recommend adding a suitable active subwoofer which you can run from the subwoofer output on the rear of MR1.

    That's the Ruarks response

    What model sub so you have? Also with room gain on sub and speakers, you may need to do it by ear. Adjust crossover and gain, go back to crossover listening to music till you're happy.

    We'll figure angle,.if 30 is at 7 and 120 is at 5 just so divide the radius to every 10. It does t matter if it's exactly be because final adjustments will be done by ear. I presume.the speakers pass full range our to the sub output?
