    Make sure all your speakers are set to small on the receiver (this will cause the receiver's 80hz crossover to take effect). Then turn the crossover up to 150hz on the PDR10 to essentially disable it(you don't need two, having them overlap can cause problems).

    Some claim that the PDR10 sounds better when the crossover is set to between 90hz and 100hz. I tried it and didn't agree.

    Hi Shane. The simplest way to make sure that your sub is crossed over properly is to turn the crossover knob all the way to the highest setting and set all of your speaker settings in your receiver speaker settings to small. That way the receiver crosses over all of your speakers and you don't have two crossovers in your signal path that may cause less then optimal bass performance.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Shane,

    I would agree with the above posts. I have a Denon 3802 and a Paradigm PW-2200 subwoofer.
