Thanks again TKO1.
I guess that is why I am frustrated. Using the LFE in on my sub defeats of the subs internal crossover settings as it expects the processor to handle everything.
So, lets say a user of the A5000 when listening to 2 channel leaves their Fronts set to large but wants to supplement the lower end with the sub, they would have to turn on "double bass", but that sends everything that goes to the mains @ 120Hz and below to the sub also. That could be overkill in some situations.
The reverse is also true...
Let's say that you wanted to crossover your mains at 60Hz but you wanted your sub to supplement your mains low end. The only option is for the sub to get 60Hz and below, not 80Hz or 100Hz and below if that is what you desired.
I am just surprised that Yamaha did not give the user the option to do such because everyone's speakers, room etc. is different as is everyone's taste for sound.
You can configure these things to have different speaker settings. Remember LFE is not redirected bass. It is its own dedicated .1 channel. It doesn't exist in anything other than 5.1/7.1 audio recordings. And like I explained earlier your sub is still supplementing your low-end when crossed over at 60Hz, just not as loudly.
What you can do is to use the speaker setting pattern to configure two different speaker settings with different crossovers etc. Then you can store them into different scenes so at the click of one button on the remote you can go to whatever configuration you want. See page 106 of the owner's manual for that. Page 108 talks about the extra bass setting. Scene information begins on page 53 with comprehensive instructions on page 97 onward.
I think that might help with what you are attempting to do.
