Does the Frugel Horn XL with Mark Audio Alpair 10.3 M need a support woofer/sub?

Depends how much/low bass you need and that is independent of the question of whether where the mains are is a good place for bass production in your room.

Most probably don't find the need for a helper woofer. I don't.

Application / room size? I'd never day "never"

For home theatre, 2.1 and beyond, that's a given, and having lived for numerous weeks with several iterations of amplification and crossover schemes for the Alpair 7/12 MTMs, I can attest that even for domestic 2 channel audio, relieving any full ranger driver this size class of the bottom octaves can yield benefits way beyond the cost.

My daily drivers are Alpair10P in compact floorstander in a 7.1 system with decent enough little corner mounted woofers, but for music only, well ... I'd take the MTMs and 4 channels of TomChr's Modulus 86 in a heartbeat - which would of course be one more justification for playing with something like a minidsp 2x4HD.

What would be the cut-off frequency setting for the sub in order to integrate with FHXL Alpair 10.3M?

35-40 Hz if you didn't put a HP on the FHXL.

What's an 'HP'? Sorry for the ignorance.

HP = High Pass filter (in this context).
