Sub question - setup problem
My new Monitor Audio SW-12 sub won't recognize the AVR's output via the dedicated sub jack unless double bass is enabled (no high pass filter on content passed to sub) on the Onkyo AVR, that is it seems incapable of recognizing only true low frequency content and simply will not play. The input on the sub is to the LFE jack vs. the full range inputs. This is annoying because it means the sub and mains are doubling up above the high pass setting of the crossover, which I would like to avoid. Even setting the crossover on the AVR as high as 150 Hz does not help. I know I could use the full range pre outs into the full range pre-ins on the sub with the sub's own crossover (which is ignored when using the LFE input) outputting filtered content back to the AVR's main ins instead, but that is a lot of cabling and extra signal path I should not have to bother with. The AVR's mains are set to large as per the instructions.
I have used the same AVR with a Klipsch sub without this issue, and have tested with all sorts of material with low bass content, so I suspect the sub is somehow defective, any ideas on other things to check though?
