Just as I mentioned above, what exactly is crossover frequency when it comes to audio. I'm messing around with my X-fi motherboard control panel and default is 80Hz. What happens when I put it up? Will I get an audio improvement? By Hz it kind sounds like it has to do with processing the sound (it's ok to call that wrong and dumb, I'm a complete audio noob).

EDIT: They're headphones

I'm not sure how exactly it fits with your sound hardware, but in general crossover frequency refers to frequency filters. In engineering school we used to design frequency filters that would be high-pass filters, that would block any frequencies below a certain high frequency, while letting anything above it pass through. For instance, a circuit designed to feed a sub-woofer would have a filter in it designed to filter out anything over 80 or 100 Hz.

Here's a fuller explanation:

Although that was pretty short and simple, I chose it as the best answer as I forgot to mention that I was using headphones...so yeah...thanks for answering the question.
