    Hello everyone. I have a slight problem with my current set up. I have: onkyo 878 running paradigm studio cc and two refernce 20's. An adcom 200x2 running my studio 100's. I want to add a sub but also want to use my towers to their full potential. I'm only aware of two methods to connect a sub to my system. One being speaker level and the other line level. Line level is fine but cuts off frequencies below 80hz to my towers, which I don't want. Speaker level requires a lot more expensive speaker cable.
    Can anyone please help me with this problem?
    Thanks for your time
    Any comments are welcome

    Most receivers allow you to set your mains to "large" or "small". If set at large, the mains should get a full range signal, at the very least with direct stereo material. If the Onkyo is THX-certified, it may mandate an 80Hz crossover to the sub on 5.1 movies, but this shouldn't affect other modes. Check the chapter on speaker settings.
