    Ok just want to clarify a few things on my new set up. Just bought the Kef 2005mk1 and Sony STR-DB940 from a nice chap on these very forums! :smashin:

    Anyway, wondering if I am doing everything correctly so here goes:

    1) Crossover settings, on the sub I have the crossover set to max and on the amp the speakers have a crossover of 120, now do the sub and amp crossover need to match?

    What exactly should the crossover be doing/set to?

    2) Phase adjust on the back of the sub, can't tell the difference between 0 and 180, is there any?

    3) Should the input level on the sub be halfway or so, and then fine adjust the volume of the sub using the amp?

    4) On the amp I can increase the Subwoofer Level, DTS LFE Level but I cannot increase the LFE Mix which is set at 0db. How high should these be or is it down to what I think "feels" better?

    I hear lots people talking about -db's, mine all seem to be either 0 or +, should I reduce these and just turn the volume up?
