    That this has been covered before many times,just wondering where I set the x-over on the receiver and on the sub?The receiver has x-overs of 80hz-100hz-120hz-150hz-200hz,and on the sub a high out dial ranging from 50hz-150hz.The question obviously is where do I set them??Any views will be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance.

    Assuming you are connecting at line-level, set the crossover you want on the amp, then set the crossover on the sub to something higher.

    What you set this crossover to depends on what speakers you have.

    With your speakers I would set the crossover on the amp to 120Hz and on the sub itself as high as it will go.

    I have the Yamaha NSP400 speaker package,the front speakers have a frequency response of 65hz-20000hz,with that in mind would you still suggest I set the x-over on the amp at 120hz and the sub at it's highest{150hz}?Thanks in advance.

    And smoking is good for you.

    Your question has been correctly answered by Chip Johannssen who obviously took the time to look at your previous posts (as I did) to answer your question.

    Not malicious at all but merely sarcastic as loudspeaker manufacturers have been know to be economical with the truth. There is no way that your speakers will go down as low as 65Kz without producing bucketloads of distortion :D

    No problems. As everyone will be too pleased to tell you I am a sarcastic person at the best of times but it's a shame that the new moderator has seen fit to edit your post for swearing as I thought that your comment was quite amusing :D
