    If anyone has one of these could give me advice on how it up. I have just changed the amp to a yamaha ax640 and my speakers are B&W 602.5 at the front and the center LCR60 and the rears are the 601's.

    Any help would be appreciated? - just can't seem to get this set up correctly

    The following are how I have my CHT-10 set up and are just a good starting point:

    Set the crossover on the amp to 80Hz
    Set amps sub to 'YES'
    Set the CHT's input to direct (no internal crossover used)
    Connect sub to amp via single phono lead
    Set volume on sub to around a third. Adjust volume from amp after that. Keep turning volume down until it is no longer heard, then turn back up slightly.

    If sub is booming then I found turning the sub at a slight angle to the walls helped to get rid. Be prepaired to move the sub around quiet a lot to get the best, boom free, sound!

    HTH,
    Mark.
