  1. Hi Paul, interesting podcast. I know you had Maggies in your system previously, hoping you can comment. I’ve got the Marchand 3 way crossover and the Magnepan 20.1 series speakers and bi-amp them. I have not hooked up a subwoofer to the bass yet. Would you comment on whether you think the sound quality would be compromised if the lower sub frequencies were sent only to the sub and not sent to the maggies… I am considering sending frequencies approximately below 60 hz to the sub . Your thoughts on the topic are appreciated.
