On my denon 1909 under sub settings I can choose ''LFE'' or ''LFE+MAIN'' but im not sure what the difference is between them? or if one mode is better then the other?
Anyone care to shed some light?

I fully agree with this when it comes to multi-channel and movies.
This was exactly the information I was looking for! My measurements with REW showed the same results with the settings SMALL + LFE and SMALL + LFE/MAIN and I was wondering why this was.The LFE+Main setting only has any effect if your mains are set to "Large", ie full range and has no effect if the mains are set "Small".
As I said, if the mains are set "Small" the LFE+Main has no effect and does the same as setting to LFE only.
If the mains are set to large then they run full range so the crossover is disabled as it does nothing. The crossover for the sub should be active, but if it isn't it must be because Marantz assume you'll just do it on the sub and/or your running a high level connection.This was exactly the information I was looking for!

But can you explain to me why my Crossover setting in my Marantz SR5005 AVR is automatically disabled when choosing LARGE + LFE?
And a second thing I was thinking about a little more:
Let s say we play a 5.1 movie with settings SMALL, LFE and crossover set at 80. Thanks, but how does this work properly in ANY system:
Let s say we play a 5.1 movie with settings SMALL, LFE and crossover set at 80. In the movie a sequence passes where .1 (LFE) signals are send to the subwoofer but ALSO at the same time some 60-70Hz info (that was initially meant for the mains, center or surrounds) is send to the subwoofer; how does a subwoofer 'handle' this double information??
I strongly suggest you run Audyssey as it is the best way to incorporate the sub. Use LFE only. Phase to zero. Crossover on the sub to maximum (usually 120hz-140hz). To start Audyssey put the sub's gain to around 10 o'clock then check the sub's level. It needs to be between -12dB and +12db, the closest to 0dB the better but either -6dB or +6dB will be fine. Adjust the gain on the sub as needed.Hi

What settings should I use with SVS SB1000 subwoofer please in manual mode
LFE or LFE main.
Not set up audyssey yet
The LFE crossover on the sub should always be set to it's highest, in this case it's shown as the low pass filter. The gain is determined by Audyssey to keep it within the -12dB to +12dB setting so that the receiver can easily control the LFE, the closer to 0dB the better. It may mean the gain going up on the sub or conversely going down.What? If using with an avr it should be on LFE which he currently has it on surely. Only change I’d make it turn the gain yo a few clicks
I couldn't see the back very well on the posted image. Looking at the manufacturer's imagine I can now see that the dial is marked LFE, bottom clockwise. So my bad.Hmm all the manuals I’ve read for subs say that if connecting to a AVR, the crossover should be set to LFE if it has that option.
I’ll be annoyed if this is not that case and where I have been going wrong all this time lol
Dam I was almost hoping that I had it wrong and making that change would somehow grant me the ability to shake the walls done haha.I couldn't see the back very well on the posted image. Looking at the manufacturer's imagine I can now see that the dial is marked LFE, bottom clockwise. So my bad.
