    hi all, im jw whats the benefits of having different tensions in the mains and crosses
    and what do you get if the mains are higher in tension, and the crosses lower, and vice versa
    thanks

    you might want to try searching next time.

    but higher crosses prevent string movement (no idea on feel because i haven't tried it)

    higher mains give a softer stringbed.

    as for tension im talking about 1-3 lb differential
