    Low is generally considered best, especially for HT. Some will only use high though. If you use one sub for both music and HT, I would definitely go with the low.

    Do you mean "low-level"(RCA type connection)/"high-level"(speaker wire connection), or as you said "low-pass"/"high-pass" as in crossover output?

    You need to provide more detail.

    To me low-pass means the low pass output of a crossover and low-level means RCA type in/output.

    If you mean low-level/high-level, use the low-level. If you mean low-pass/high-pass, use the low-pass.

    Sorry Jeff--I should have said low-level and I did not read your question as closely as I should have. [​IMG]

    well on regular stereo mode the subwoofer turned off correct? ive got a Harman/Kardon AVR320.
    im thinking of going w/ the lowpass hookup tho.
    what difference would i notice in the 2?
    im building a 2 cu foot box w/ 1 12" and 2 15" PRs and a 300 watt amp. all from www.stryke.com (talk to him on the net alot).
