I just received my STF-2 the other day and am ready to calibrate my speakers and subwoofer and need some help with the initial settings for the STF-2.

My main question is what should the controls on the back of the STF-2 be set to initially. Controls are:

Phase switch: 0 degree or 180 degree. Should this be set to 0 degree

Volume: Probably set to 1/4 or 1/2

Crossover Frequency: Should this be set to what my A/V Receivers crossover is set at (i.e. 80hz)????

Crossover switch: Out or In. If set to Out the crossover is controlled by the A/V Receiver, so the crossover frequency dial would not be used.. is that correct???

I have the sub hooked up via the Sub In (LFE) connection.

I have my Avia disk and Radio Shack SPL Meter ready... so any help would be appreciated.

Yes, it should be in the manual.

Start with 50% gain (volume), x-over bypassed (receiver should be handling that), 0 phase, with the receiver's sub level at 0 and see what that gives you on your first reading. Once you have the receiver and sub's volume handled, then switch between 0 and 180 phase to see which gives you better results. To adjust volume, use the sub's gain to get close, then dial it in with the receiver so you have room to adjust to taste easily with the receiver's settings.
