    Default Mirage OS3 Crossover setting

    werthliving.com

    Hey guys,
    I can't figure out what the recommended setting for the crossover should be for the Mirage OS3 Speakers(floor,center,& sats) should be, it says on their website, miragespeakers.com, i just don't know what that translates to. I believe I have it at 80

    I'm assuming your seeking info on sub x-over
    I have the V2 series (OS3 updated to inc one more speaker in the tower) I have my sub set to 80

    The floors are 52 Hz - 20 kHz +/- 3dB

    The Center is 70 Hz - 20 kHz

    The surrounds are 70 Hz - 20 kHz


    I'd set the fronts at 80hz, the center at 100hz (unless you have a 90 option), and the surrounds are generally never down that low anyways, but 100hz would be my choice for them as well. Hopefully you have a good sub and let it do the rest.

    Before I upgraded the Def Tech speakers I had were rated similarly and I had to run them at 100hz because they were smaller. This ends up with more low sound being handled by the sub, but its better for the sub to handle it than a speaker than can't.

    Agreed, setting x-over lower would over work the speakers. This system sounds amazing with a good sub I have the Mirage S10 and the results are excellently matched.

    Thats what I had with my Def Tech speakers. The bookshelfs were getting way to much work at 80hz and I had a gap in sound because they couldnt handle that mid bass. Once I spoke with Def Tech and they told me 100hz was their recommendation, it helped overall sound a lot.

    People let the "small" and xover setting worry them too much. My towers have dual 8" woofers and I still set them at 80hz and small. Thats why you have a sub, so set it where you get the most out of it and enjoy it.
