G Three and 7050b compatibility

G Three and 7050b compatibility

Is 7050b compatible/recommended with G Three in terms of seamless integration. I noticed that my G three does not have the Bass Roll Off-dip switch and the 7050b does not have high pass filter. Can I use the other dip switches in G Three? What would be the optimal connection and settings?

Does the F Two perform better with G Three than 7050b? Of course there is 7060b, but it is too expensive for me.
I have only G Three stereo pair and typical use is music/movies 50/50.

7050B is not compatible with any G series speakers because it is lacking the needed high pass filter for the speakers. 7050B was designed to be used with 8020 and 8030 speakers. G Three is compatible with F Two and 7060B (and bigger 7000 series subwoofers).

You could try to set the "low bass" dip on, as it offers -4 dB bass roll-off at the low cut-off frequency. However, it's not the same as proper 85 Hz roll-off.

I realize this is an old thread. However, if someone's looking for a solution to couple G Threes with a 7050B: It's always possible to get an external crossover. An active one may be an idiot-proof solution. Personally, I have a passive high pass filter (roll-over frequency adjusted to match the low pass filter built in the 7050B / roll-over being 12 dB/Oct) between my preamp and the speakers. Sounds right and setup cost just some 50 € extra!
