    I have a Yamaha 995 Receiver and a Paradigm PW2200 sub. My question is that my receiver has a crossover cut off of 90htz for the LFE, can I use the crossover on my sub to cut the frequency down to 80htz or is it automatically set to 90 htz. Thanks

    If he really wanted a lower crossover, couldn't he take the front L/R speaker outs into the sub, then out from the sub to the speakers. Then set the L/R speakers to 'large' and the subwoofer to 'none'.
    Then the receiver will send all bass via the L/R speakers, which will first pass through the sub, where you can adjust the crossover as required.
    Or am I missing something really obvious?

    The only problem that I can think of with that arrangement is that you lose the benefits of active bi-amping. The receiver is now send full-range amplified signals to the main speakers/sub. You may lose some headroom.
