ooh, good info.
To cut bass from the bookshelf speakers, turn down the bass setting on the receiver and turn up the gain on the sub?
Does turning down the bass on the receiver remove overall bass from the source where it won't sound good, or can you still compensate with the sub's amp?
I'm asking because the bookshelf speakers are more like satellites (Infinity TSS SAT1200) and they cannot handle much bass at all.
I could use instead the Pioneer bs21 bookshelf speakers but they are only 6-ohm so I'm hesitant to use it with the Sherwood which in the manual says use only 8-ohm speakers.
