If a HEOS Link is going to be used with a subwoofer, I can understand why it MIGHT NOT have a LP crossover, but if AVRs have one, why couldn't they include it in HEOS? Also, the line out has no HP crossover- are they assuming people will use dinky speakers that can't come close to the bass region? How hard would it be to include these? I doubt it would have been expensive (well, in the beginning, anyway).

i guess they assume you would run it into a full range amp and hope the amp has those controls. are you talking about the AMP or the pre-amp link?

Au contraire, mon frere. If they expect that dinky speakers are going to be used, they're ignorant if they aren't worried about blowing the woofers of said little guys.

I'd contact the company and ask them what they're thinking.

How hard would it be to include these? I doubt it would have been expensive (well, in the beginning, anyway).

It might have been prohibitive. The HP filter has to be at the right frequency for your speakers, so it has to be adjustable. It has to be turnoffable, so a switch has to be added for that. This is probably all done in software, but it's still something that most people probably aren't going to use.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Yes, for the 1 in 1,000,000 people that might find this feature useful, let's invest time and money and add hundreds to the cost.

Then they should remove the subwoofer output and save even more money.

Otherwise that is just a stupid statement to make. As stupid as them not including a high-pass xover, that can be turned on & adjusted when using the subwoofer output.

Both. Even the people at HEOS support think it would be a good idea. Maybe we can get in the ear of someone at Sound United and get this done. If they're reading, I'd like a 12V trigger on the HEOS AMP, too.

Hundreds? It's on a chip. They could add a full DSP and not add hundreds.
