Really? Ive worked with Taibanl on this config and its netted the best sound so far. I think maybe because my speakers are all powered from the MS8's internal amp (except underseats).

The under-seats are on CH1 & 2 of the JL with the only X-Over settings for those channels listed as OFF/HP So ill leave on HP and change the freq for calibration?

So let me make sure I got this right?

LEAVE All MS8 settings the way they are & make adjustments only on amp at this point.
  • Set CH1/2 to 220/240hz
  • Run calibration with the sub disconnected
  • Hook sub back up
  • Move X-over back to 80hz and enjoy DONE?
