What is the recommended crossover frequency for a subwoofer? For THX Certified and non THX Certified home theater systems, 80 Hz is the recommended setting. However, you can set the crossover (LPF) between 80 Hz - 120 Hz based on which setting sounds best for your system.

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