    I have a Mirage Bipolar Sub and Sony 4ES Receiver and have noticed that changing the LFE High Cutoff on the Receiver (40hz - 200hz) has no effect on the Sub. My fronts are set to large but changing them to small made no difference. Shouldn’t I be able to direct low frequencies to my Sub, electronically? I am using the Low Pass Input. Thanks.

    I have the Mirage BPS-400 and a Yamaha 795a receiver. A cable going out of the Yamaha sub out into the "LFX" input of the sub which by-passes the controls volume and low pass filter on the back of the sub. Mirage told me that it is the best way to run it.

    Hope this helps.

    If the sub’s crossover is engaged, it may or may not. If the sub’s crossover set at about 40Hz, nothing set on the receiver would make an audible difference.
