Never really understood this WAF thingy. I say who, I say when, I say what, I say how. She dont dictate how I live and what I do. Hold on folks, gotta pop over to the store for a bit to get my wife some moisturizing cream. Ill be back in 30.
Exactly this. There's a hole around 100 - 120 in my room, and the speakers aren't especially movable, given my livingroom setup. Once I get the silly sub working, I'll test - but I might have to cross at 120....I'm surprised you guys aren't liking 80 Hz. It must be your rooms forcing a higher XO?
I don't agree with the general statement that "bookshelf" speakers can't play below 100 Hz cleanly, but it looks like you have a special case there so you do what's best in your space.bookshelves can't really play below 100Hz cleanly, me and my partner are sensitive to different kinds of distortion so we both agreed that the speakers need to be crossed higher.
Also my JBLs are my living room speakers, they're tucked in a cabinet (for maximum WAF) and covered with thick Basotect foam. the higher they play the better as the foam stops absorbing below 200Hz.

With an 80 Hz crossover, at 40 Hz it will be down by 30 dB (18 dB from the speaker's natural rolloff according to the measurement and 12 dB from the AVR) so it's probably not audible.well this speaker has lower distortion than most bookshelves and it has 30% THD at 50Hz so do with that as you please.
I looked into purchasing the A130 and it's original manufacturer number JBLA130BLK is discontinued, but replaced by a yet to arrive JBLA130BLKAM part number. The "AM" added onto the end of it. Wonder if they changed a resistor...... oh and the base price went up.
Anyone have a frequency graph of the A120?
Thanks for looking into this. My dads just waiting for his pair right now. Hopefully there's no sonic differences.
