Modifying subwoofer low-pass

Youngling Viestejä: 0 Liittymispäivä: 3.7.2020 Viimeisimmät viestit

Hello, I have a pair of 8040 speakers, and I like them very much. Even the bass is very good, to some 45 Hz.

I use these solely for listening to music, and do not need earthquaking volumes.

Mainly for organ music, I would like to add a subwoofer. The lowest notes of a big organ go down to some 16 Hz. With a 7060 or 7360 this could almost be reached but I think the 85 Hz crossover frequency is a bit high. I think the basses would sound nicer when reproduced by the 8040:s, with a better soundstage, too. The sub would essentially just handle the lowest octave.

I have understood that the 7000-series crossover cannot be set to lower than 85. 

Is there a way to get around this?

Or, am I getting this hole thing wrong? ; )
