I'm new to Audyessey but I think I understand the preferred starting point with setup of a sub is to eliminate sub filters, phase controls, etc.

The Paradigm Servo 15 I've been using came with a remote active cut-off and phase control which I previously eliminated by incorporation of a BFD. The BFD and Paradigm were a perfect marriage and after a lengthly period of "training" I was able to nail my system's LFE performance. In the past when I've changed receivers I simply left the BFD and Servo 15 paired and used whatever system the receiver had for equalization MCACC or YPAO. This actual worked fairly well since neither of these systems appear to do much with LFE.

With the features for LFE management of Audyssey, I gather this is not appropriate. I'm assuming I should simply utilize the naked sub which has only a gain control and permit Audyssey to do it's thing? Or should I leave the tuned BFD in the picture?

Forgive me if I'm asking something that's been answered many times before. I just cannot seem to successfully utilize the search features on this forum to find anything....

Try it both ways ... with and without the BFD. Use whichever configuration you prefer. smile.gif
