It's in the IOS app. See the screenshot here:I see no crossover setting except for sub, not for the speakers themselves.
The speaker has no pretensions to be a subwoofer so we assume the actual signal output is flat down to 10Hz or somesuch.
The first four measurements were just made using YPAO settings in the app, to check that the cutoffs at 60.90 and 200 worked. And they do.
Measurement 5 was with YPAO off, which disables the bass cut settings. The bass roll-off appears to be at 90Hz.
Measurement 6 was Pure Direct and shows roll-off starting at about 400Hz. So yes, you really need to adjust the sub to an appropriate value for that.
What's your subjective opinion of the YPAO mode? Do you hear much difference in noise and distortion over Pure Direct mode? Does the proper bass crossover make up for it?I did the tests to check what was what with my setup. I have the 803 with Kef LS50 Metas and a Kef KC62 sub but though I've had them for a while I hadn't got round to setting them up properly.
I had considered high-level connection to the sub - but using the low level output and setting the KC62 at manual 90Hz seems to serve all purposes. I mainly use it in YPAO mode with settings for different listening positions, only occasionally in Pure Direct mode. For me the 803 is the best solution.
Dammit, I read your post just before I made my way to bed (was 2 in the morning here in England) - but I couldn't sleep for thinking about it.So, I emailed Yamaha tech support. The response was "The Cut off frequency for the Subwoofer Output of the R-N803D is 90 Hz." and that "this is fixed whether pure direct is engaged or not".
Make of that what you will.
If you are still interested I am now able to give a meaningful reply. Although I've had my bedroom setup for quite a while I hadn't set it up properly. But after much messing around I now have the sub placed where it gves some decent output, though quite a few feet away from where it 'fits' best. Plus my Amazon Music HD sub expires soon and I have been comparing it against a free trial of Qobuz to see which to keep. I used the 802 setup for that so have also been comparing the various modes, Pure Direct, Ypao and normal.What's your subjective opinion of the YPAO mode?
