Polk RTi10 towers (F)
Polk CSi5 (C)
Polk RT/FX (R)
BIC VK-12 sub
Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver

Would it be better to keep the VK12 sub on the LFE output or use the pass-through terminals on the sub? The sub has a switch to allow for it to use its own internal crossover or the receiver's crossover. Obviously the receiver has Audyssey so it can keep things in check either way.

Watch about 50% movies and 50% TV. Occasionally play on the PS3 or use the system for music (once or twice a month, tops).

I would just use the LFE jack and let the receiver control the cross-over settings.
