I run a left right and sub out of my X32 mixer.  Subs are not wired to the 812's. What should the settings be on the 812's for signal input and EQ?

What should the settings be on the subs for line output EQ?


Thanks in advance!

HI cstew1963,

You can send a full range signal to both the F1 Model 812 and F1 Subwoofer.

On the F1 Model 812 - set the EQ switch to WITH SUB or just send it high-pass above 100 Hz.

The F1 Subwoofer has its own internal EQ and so you can send it a full range signal.

Is that what you want to know?


@cstew1923, I would recommend using the "With Sub" on the 812 and "Thru" on the F1 Sub and feed the output from the F1 sub to the 812. There's no reason to crossover in the X32 in my experience. Bose did a great job tuning the active crossover configurations on these speakers for you. You won't be able to do much better without more time, effort and equipment.
