    This is my first time using the forum so go easy on me (please!).

    I have just set up my Panasonic 42 with the Anthony Gallow 5.1 package and Denon AVR3802.

    My question is, for optimum sound, to what MHZ setting should I set:

    a) AVR3802 (via on-screen set up)
    b) Sub woofer amp (via small knob on the back)

    I am confused because the AVR manual recommends 80MHZ but the Gallo manual refers to 120MHZ.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer...

    I have my Gallo's set at 100hz on my Denon, and about 105hz on the sub itself.

    Hope that this helps.

    Oops - I meant HZ not MHZ. Thanks for the replies.

    I presume that once you decide on the number, whether it is 100 or 120hz (both seem to be popular), you must set the receiver and the sub amp at the same level. It is more difficult to set the sub amp to exactly 120hz as it is a knob which is not clearly labelled - any tips or does it not matter if you are not bang on 120???

    I place mine slightly above the desired mark to avoid any gap in the crossover.

    If you crossover at 100hz, then 100hz is 12 o'clock on the sub which makes it quite easy to locate.
