    I'm completely at a loss how to do this, can't seem to find any options that will mean that i can use my sub when playing standard CDs.

    I've got it configured for crossover in the setup section, and it works great with movies, but i'm getting nothing out of it for CDs.

    Help!

    According to the manual you need to set the front speakers to small in order to be able to send any low frequency information to the sub at all. If you set the fronts to small and the 'Stereo+Sub' option to 'Duplicate' it will still send all the sound to the fronts as well as sending low frequencies to the sub also. I hope this helps.

    Actually I've just played about with the one in our demo room and I can only get the sub to work if you set the fronts to small and set the 'Stereo+Sub option to 'Crossover'. Sorry for any confusion.
