    Based on all that I have read in this forum I took the plunge and purchased a DLS 10 sub. It won't be shipping until the end of January and I can hardly wait. I have a question about how to set this up though. My receiver has crossover points of 100, 150 and 200. Where should I set this value and where should the DLS crossover be set to? My mains are Klipsch KG2s set to small.

    I apologize if this has been covered before in previous threads but I haven't found it by doing a search.

    umm...you should probably set the receivers crossover to 100hz and the DLS's to max...

    I ordered one for my dad on Monday 1/6/03 and PE said that it wouldn't ship for two weeks. He recieved it on Friday 1/10/03 in the afternoon. Granted, we are only a few hundred miles away from PE HQ in Ohio, but I was shocked that it came in so quickly.

    He is tickled with this sub as an addition to his Bose setup. It helps round out the sound very nice.

    I just talked to PE and they told me that they are expecting to restock on the 20th, 10 days sooner than I expected.

    Well, of COURSE a Bose owner would be just tickled to discover that extra bottom end below 50Hz that he/she was missing all that time before

    but sooner or later he/she is going to start wondering why they spent $3000 on a Bose system that didn't give them as much and as clean bass as a $100 powered subwoofer from what to most people would be considered a no-name brand.

    ("DLS? Never heard of it. No matter how good it is, it can't beat my $3000 name-brand BOSE setup! No way in heck!")

    Just ordered one of these for the spare room system. $132 w/ shiping costs, back ordered but I am in no hurry. All based on the reviews/raves from all of you !
