Subwoofer Crossover Settings – The Best Guide

Setting the crossover point of a subwoofer is tricky, but there are some things you can do to find the right blend.  Let’s discuss how to get the most out of your listening experience.

What Is a Subwoofer Crossover?

Well, it’s the frequency where your subwoofer and speakers work together to cross a higher or lower range.

How to Set Up Your Subwoofer Crossover

Look at the back of your subwoofer, then set the low-pass crossover at least 10Hz higher than your main speakers’ range.

How to Test the Subwoofer Crossover

If you can detect any peaks, reduce your overlap until the frequencies are smooth.  If there is a noticeable discontinuity in sound, slowly increase it to get the transition effect you want.

There’s a chance that during your tests, you’ll hear bass bumps while your speakers and sub are overlapping. It’s not an issue with your crossover, but rather with the output volume.
