    Following some recent good reviews I have this sub on my short list.

    I notice however that the crossover frequencies only range from 35 to 85hz. As the lowest crossover frequency on my amp is 100hz, I assume that I am going to miss something?

    Stupid crossovers on the sub as well unless it has an off option. Means you cant partner with satalite/lifestyle speakers :(

    Would setting the front speakers to 'Large' have an impact?

    Yep, had a look at that last night. It talks about two levels, which is applicable?

    HF limit 35 - 110hz
    Crossover 35-85hz

    the HF limit is how high (in pitch) the sound will go. in this case, its 110hz (4 octaves below A above middle C on a piano if you really want to know ;)). so it'll be fine with your satellites and you won't have a 'hole' according to their figures.

    i would go for a Ruark Vita 100 from www.bkelec.com instead though. Wharfedale haven't had the best reputation for subwoofers- all the ones i've dealt with have returned due to noisy transformers and not switching to standby mode correctly.
