I either turn it on manually or temporarily bump up the volume until it's on.

Didn't know there actually was a way to use the sub in Pure Direct mode on Denons.

You still haven't told us what bookshelves you're using; they may require a higher crossover.

Also with Pure Direct you won't get the benefits of Audyssey room correction so the sub will likely be more affected by room modes and the like.

I am using the Focal Chorus 807V bookshelf speakers. Below are the specs of the 807V:

Type: 2-way bass reflex bookshelf loudspeaker
7" Polyglass mid-bass
1" TNV inverted dome tweeter
Frequency response (±3dB): 50Hz-28kHz
Sensitivity (2.83V/1m): 92dB
Nominal impedance: 8 ohms
Power handling: 160/110W
Dimensions (HWD): 17-5/8" x 9-1/3" x 13-1/8"

What would be the best Crossover for these speakers? Right now, I have the Crossover at 80Hz from the Denon receiver.

Thanks for any advice!

Finally Finished the basement remodel, after a long 10 months, carpet goes in tomorrow.. I was hoping for a Pb 12 plus in the outlet center but I cannot wait any longer! Placed the order for dual Pb 2000. Fingers crossed that I feel what I expect to feel in just shy of 4000 cubic feet.

I've had my PB1000 for about 4 weeks now, absolutely LOVVEEEE it. Bass punches you in the gut and is super clean. The only problem now is that I want a second one real bad, but someone may not be too pleased!!!!

(yes I am a fanboy! ) If the source material is there the PB its playing it accurate - your settings/room ascetics/positioning could also be a factor. For music, you want the sub to be part of the show, not the whole show. Dependent on material you may get a chest punch vs. a more subtle punch.

Yes coming from a Boomy x2 SUB you will think there is something wrong with the SVS...I would give it a week or 2 to get accustomed to it.

The PB2000 has more authority in movies vs the sealed version. I can feel the movies in my couch, I cannot say the same for the SB2000 I had.

I watched Need for Speed with my 2 boomy subs when I had them hooked up and I thought it sounded great, well I re-watched it last night with the SB2000.... it was like watching a brand new movie, but I was a mind reader and knew what was going to happen before the scene arrived on screen
