Depending on the capabilities of your speakers 80hz is a good place to start. Maybe even go to 100hz or higher to see if the mid bass is better from the sub or the speakers.

Pure Direct mode won't use your subwoofer as it completely bypasses the crossover.

Also depending on your bookshelf speakers it could be adequate to use a higher crossover frequency.

Both about the same, sound-wise. Depends on budget and form.

Life without bass is not worth living.

They're at same price.

I see that they use same element, same amp etc.

And the PC seems to do 16hz, while PB does 18hz?

Usage is 80% music and 20% movies.

The Pure Direct in Yamaha might use the subwoofer if you have extra bass active.

I have owned the PC12-NSD and PB12-NSD DSP and the PCs were far easier to calibrate in my room and played 3hz deeper. So I sold the PBs and have a PC-2000 on order.

The difference between 16 and 18Hz can't be heard, only measured. I am biased towards the water heaters. Plays music well and digs down for movies. Good luck in your choice, grasshopper.
