    Headroom has a quality all its own. :cool: I wouldn't hesitate to try the 16 Hz mode, too; you certainly have enough sub for it.

    Often times poor subwoofer performance on music is a function of a rising deep bass response due to room gain, and also running the subs a bit too hot.

    All filters will introduce a phase rotation - even the digital filters in the AVR. They are just more precise than the analog low pass filter in the subwoofer. That is why it's common to see the...

    Naturally. The 5-1/4" woofers have a limited excursion capability and will behave much better when high-passed. With low cone excursion, THD and IMD goes way down, and midrange clarity goes way up. ...

    If there is a high pass filter on the line level outputs, it cannot be defeated unless there is an external defeat switch.

    Any unfiltered gains or losses affect the entire pass band equally.
