    Hi

    Set the amp to 80hz and the crossover on the sub to max.

    Depends what front speakers you are using as well though - if they are very small, then setting the amp's crossover too low may not be a good idea - may be better to set it at 100 or 120.
    Make sure your other speakers are set to the correct size setting on the amp as well.

    You may have to play around with the sub level and speaker settings on the amp to get a happy medium
