    I've been looking at Aperions recently, but I had a question about their review on cnet stating no direct subwoofer input on the asperion speakers ...

    When they say no direct subwoofer input are they referring to not having a line level input on the sub (which it does), or the fact that you can't shut the sub's built-in crossover off? Or that it doesn't have line level inputs on the front/center/surround speakers. Is a line level input different than a direct subwoofer input?
    thanks

    sorry, can't post urls yet; cnet review is at their homepage

    Thanks Matt, much better!

    Okay: “Direct” means the internal crossover is bypassed, or it does not have one at all. A line-level input is the same as a subwoofer input.

    Hope this helps.

    ok, there's just no way to bypass the subwoofer's internal crossover.
    thanks!

    There is no way to bypass the internal crossover. But it is highly adjustable from 40hz to 160 hz, combined with it's polarity control and gain. makes it a pretty easy sub to place.

    If you're thinking of picking this sub up I recommend it.
