    I own a BIC 10" subwoofer. In the instruction book, it says to not use the low level input and instead to use the crossover. Why would you do this? I also have a Sony receiver and if I plug the sub in using the low level input, I don't get any sound. It only seems to work when the crossover is being used. Any advice?

    Ignore the manual. Your receiver can do the crossover thing as well. There are only rare instances where you would want to use the crossover in a sub (mostly with very high end gear).

    My guess is your receiver isn't setup correctly. Find the manual and figure out how to set the subwoofer channel to yes/on and how to set all your speakers to small (rather than large). This will redirect all freqeuncies from your speakers below your receivers crossover point to the subwoofer.

    From large to small you say? I'll give it a shot tonight at home. I know they are set to large since they are large speakers, but that does make sense. Thanks.
