8020 /f1 and av processor best connection?

Youngling Posts: 18 Join Date: 9/9/14 Recent Posts
Hi all,

I am wondering what would be the appropriate connections between a pair of 8020, one f1/f2 and an av processor.
Should I connect them up as in:
- front right and left to sub, then sub to speakers or
- use the appropriate connections on the processor such as front right, front left and sub.
Also if using option one, most processor will ask you for a a speaker setting, either large or small. What should I put it as.?
Regards

Hi,

We recommend that the signal is always first routed to subwoofer and from there to the speakers. In this case speakers should be set to large.

Hi ikka.

Thank you very much for the reply and advice.
Just by curiosity, would it be the same for when using the f2?

Yes, same rule applies to all Genelec subwoofers except home theater models HTS3B, HTS4B and HTS6 since they only have LFE input.

Hi,

Have you read the operating manual for your devices? Correct settings are described there. :)

Is there a big difference between the two options mentioned above? I have a 5.1 setup consisting of G Ones and a F one and I am wondering should I use the crossover of Yamaha RX-V777, that can be configured in 10Hz steps (90Hz setting would be the closest to internal 85Hz in F One), or patch the G Ones through the F One. Is there any other active electronics in F One than just the crossover, regarding the choice of connecting the G Ones? If the active crossover of the RC-V777is used, I could also try out DSpeaker Anti-Mode subwoofer eq, which would not be possible when patching all the G Ones through the F One.

To cut it short: is there an audible difference between F One / RX-V777 crossover? :)

The best way to see if there is an audible difference is to try them both.

The key thing is to ONLY have the cross-over employed in 1 location.

So when you use the Genelec x-over set the Yamaha to all speakers Large and Subwoofer Yes.

When using the Yamaha x-over run each output to each speaker and set speakers to small and play with your crossover options. I'd start at 90Hz for the speakers and as high as you can go for the sub.

Yes, trying would be the best option. At the moment the setup is like you described, speakers setup as large in Yamaha and subwoofer enabled for LFE signal.

I just have to wait for a suitable moment for re-wiring the setup, and try it. Meanwhile, it would be nice to hear opinions, or knowledge regarding the difference between the crossovers. :)
