    What does it do to the sound? I've switched it back and forth and with my untrained ears can't hear a difference.

    Thanks,

    it all seemed pretty confusing to me....What happens if your sub has a frequency dial and a toggle switch?

    Assuming you have all of your speakers set to SMALL on your receiver (and you should), the receiver itself has a crossover to determine at what point bass is redirected to the subwoofer. That "frequency dial" on your sub is another crossover. You should turn it to its highest point, effectively disabling it, so that it doesn't overlap with the crossover in the receiver.
