    Nice sub, although it's really hard to tell you what to set it up at without knowing what your main speakers are and what you have them set at in regards to your receiver settings. Otherwise, alot of people use 80hz if they don't have the option to go lower than that.

    Main speakers: LSi-15 to 60Hz

    Well, what I'd do is have my sub hooked up to my avr (not utilizing the LFE) and fine tune it for anywhere around 65hz or so. I like when the sub blends in nicely with my mains, and don't want it to stick out or overpower my speakers. Thats just a personal preference of course.

    Get that thing jamming, and tweak with it until you find what you like There really is no right/wrong answer for this, unless you turn your gain all the way up or something crazy like that, or even have it in a different room than your setup lol :p

    "not utilizing the LFE?
    My AVR is a Denon 4308Ci.
    I can explain how.

    I'm not running such a high-model, but I too have a Denon AVR (2805). When you utilize the LFE, you're bypassing the subwoofers built-in crossover and leave it to your AVR to set it. Thing is, you increase or decrease the x-over in increments of 10hz. I'd rather be a bit more precise and just use the dial on the rear of the subwoofer to tweak to my preference. It's all a matter of personal taste really :D

    My AVR indicates LFE 120Hz.
    Subwoofer 60HZ indicates its dial.
    That's right.
