Just wondering if I should be setting the crossover in the minidsp to a value for subwoofer calibration?

In my AVR, there is no way to turn off the crossover... Should I be setting the crossover to the max setting in the AVR i.e. 200Hz?

You could do it either way:

- set the crossover frequency in the AVR where you need it and leave miniDSP crossover bypassed
- set crossover frequency in the AVR to max and use the miniDSP crossover

You said in another post that you have two external amps, why is that? Can you draw and post a diagram of the system?
I am not miniDSP support.

Great thanks. I actually have 3 external amps. Also, thanks for the reply in the other thread. I will run some measurements in the next couple of days (not sure if I can get to it tonight) and will post. Looking forward to hearing what you have to say. Please see below for the system drawing.

Yes but currently only trying to get one going. I still have to bolt and nut the driver into the second cab.
