Thank you for the reply miner42. I am not sure what the -6db freq is for the Auditor Ms but at least for my speakers that seems like a decent place to start. I've got my test tones and SPL meter ready so I can see what kind of freq response I can get.
BTW, did you have any trouble integrating the sub with your Auditors? Is the sound pretty seamless?
Looking at the graph I would bring the sub in around 50hz-60hz. Don't forget to try reversing the phase on the sub as well to see which sound more linear.
I agree with a 50-60hz starting point. But in addition to the phase switch the problem with Rel is the phase is either 0 or 180 degrees. The problem there is if the sub is leading or lagging the main speakers flipping the switch then they will only will then be lagging or leading the mains (opposite of the starting point). So what you have to do is either move the sub closer to farther from where you start. The most I ever had to move my B3 is 4". Once you get the phasing right it will be easier to set the crossover point and the gain. I start with the gain high when trying to determine the phasing.
Good luck and have fun
BTW once it's dialed in you should not be able to hear where the sub is located and the monitors will have a full range sound.
I have since repositioned by speakers and get my sub dialed in (I think). In my room, I was actually getting good, flat sub response from 50hz - 40hz. Once I spent some time moving my speakers around I get +- 2db response from 100-20hz, with a +4db hump at 40hz. The mid bass and bass in my room is very tight and punchy. Perhaps my hearing is not good enough, but I didnt find integrating my sub that difficult but I have never had "golden ears".
