What Hz level should I set my subwoofer?

Tips for Setting the Proper Crossover Frequency of a Subwoofer

  1. If you know your speaker’s frequency range, set the crossover point roughly 10 Hz above the lowest frequency your speakers can handle cleanly.
  2. The most common crossover frequency recommended (and the THX standard) is 80 Hz.

Is LFE line level?

Both LFE and line-in connections are line-level connections. They both use RCA connectors to transmit the low-frequency signals from the processor to the subwoofer.

How do I set my LFE subwoofer?

What is LFE on Sony stereo?

What is the optimum setting for the Low Frequency Effect (LFE) of the subwoofer output? Some Sony® receivers will allow different output settings for the Frequency Effect (LFE) channel. NOTE: A setting of 0 dB indicates that the LFE signal is being sent to the subwoofer at the same level as it was recorded.

What is the best crossover frequency for a car subwoofer?

Recommended Crossover Frequencies

  • Subwoofers: 70-80 Hz (low pass), the most essential purpose of a subwoofer crossover is to block midrange sounds.
  • Car main speakers: 50-60 Hz, the most critical element in main speaker crossovers is to block low-end bass (frequencies 80 Hz and below)
  • 2-way speakers: 3-3.5 kHz (high pass)

    What is the LFE input?

    Which is why so many subs have what’s called an LFE input (Low Frequency Effects). Basically, the LFE is a direct shot into the subwoofer’s amplifier without going through its crossover. Thus, the crossover in the receiver or SSP controls how high the bass goes and to what degree its roll off should be tailored to.

    What does LFE stand for?
