Question

I need a crossover setting not available for the Amp?

My speakers are from Orb Audio, and they recommend a crossover setting of 150 Hz. The SONOS app only allows me to set the crossover as high as 100 Hz. 

Is there any way to bypass this setting? Or, while you guys are actively modifying the app, could you please extend the available crossover range?

There has in the past never been a crossover setting exposed to the user in the Sonos software. Which, I suppose, is a roundabout way of suggesting you don’t hold your breath. It isn’t likely impossible, at some point, but probably nowhere near the top of their list of things to do.

Hi @Oakwine, your Orb Audio are copacetic with the “as is” crossover setting. The 150Hz suggestion is pertinent if you’re driving a lot of power into the speakers, and those would likely be crazy loud volume levels.

AMP crossover adjustments.

Hi @Oakwine 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

Thank you - I've marked this thread as a feature request and it will be seen by the relevant teams for consideration. Keep the ideas coming!

Yes, that only goes up to 100 Hz, as far as I can figure.

See the link from Buzz, crossover is exposed for the Amp.

Interesting. I’m certainly not shaking the walls with my music listening. And I’m not well-versed in audio science. I was just going by what the speaker manufacturer recommended.
