    On the back there are two knobs, one for level and one for "cut off frequency." I'm new to all of this and have no idea what "cut off frequency" is. It goes from 50Hz (very left) to 170z (very right). I notice that the more I turn in to the right, the deeper it gets. Can someone please explain this "cut off frequency" to me, and maybe recommend a good cut off level?

    Hi
    More info is needed for a complete answer.
    1. Receiver
    2. Front, Center and Surround Speaker types and models
    That said, the standard setup is to set all speakers to 'small', Subwoofer to ON, and crank the Crossover on the sub to 170Hz (or max)
    This means that your receiver will use it's internal crossover setting to route bass to the sub.
    Search the threads on Sub and Crossover settings and you will get a lot more info on this subject
    Take it easy - hope this helped
    Paul
