You will need to set the Cut-Off Frequency control to around 180Hz. That point will work best for the VSB200. You can adjust the Level (loudness) control until the bass level is OK to your ears.
that sony sub has an lfe input, I don't think setting the frequency control will do anything. From my previous post on this subject:
I have a sub WITH crossover control, but the crossover doesn't do anything because I am using the LFE input. I believe this is what the VSB200 expects you to do. When you use the LFE input, crossover is not used. The receiver (SVB200 manages the frequencies sent to the sub). From my sub manual:
Crossover. NOTE: This control will have no effect if the LFE Input is used. If you have a Dolby Digital or DTS processor/receiver, the Low-Pass Frequency is set by the processor/receiver. Consult your owner's manual to learn how to view or change this setting.
This setting is not adjustable on the VSB200, So you have 3 options that I know of:
1) Turn down the volume of the sub
2) Turn off the true surround (blue light) setting on the bar. This reduces bass and treble and surround effect. Some people like this setting better.
3) Adjust your TV's audio EQ settings. These might not be available if you are using a fiber optic cable to attach the bar to the tv. You might have to switch to RCA cables in order to make the control adjustable on your tv.
