    I have a Onkyo Integra 5.2 receiver and the energy take 5 speakers with the 8" sub. How do I set my crossover on my sub to 80hz or whatever. The dials on the front of the sub suck, the dials are not labeled. One dial is for the crossover I think and the other dial is to louden the sub. Can someone explain. Thanks

    The crossover on the sub is there to use when it is fed a full range signal. It prevents the sub from trying to reproduce the higher frequencies. It is surperflous for you since you feed it a signal from a HT receiver that is already stripped of high frequencies. It shouldn't be set to anything- it should be defeated. I believe this is easy with your Energy. Use the jack labeled "external xover". This will render both knobs inoperative, and the sub is now controlled by your reciever.
