    Although I'm not a moderator, I'd like to wish you an unofficial welcome to the forums!

    I have the AVP305 sub/sat set coupled with my NAD T752 and the speakers make for a very swish, wife friendly AV setup. I'm quite pleased with my gear, I hope you will be, too.

    Anyway, you should set your speakers to "small" in the amp's setup screen as the left/right and surround left/right only handle 90Hz - 22kHz. The centre should also be set to small as it handles 60Hz - 22kHz.

    The Celestion manual specifies the sub to handle from 25Hz - 130Hz, but elsewhere it says "effective range is from 40Hz - 140Hz at a rate of 24dB per octave". Now when I asked the same question in this thread:

    Bass management for Celestion AVP305 thread

    Some people, suggested 80hz for the crossover, some suggested 100hz and one chap suggested 120hz. I left it at 100hz with the sub crossover all the way up to 140hz.

    Hope this helps. I'm very pleased with the musical playback of the Nad with these speakers, I wonder what you think of the stereo playback with your Pioneer?

    thanks for your help with my ? will set it up & see if it makes any diffrence to the sound, as to what do i think of the sound it is to say the least jaw dropping both in musical playback & with dvd's.
    Regards
    Shen
