Here's what you do...
Start with making sure both the Sub outputs on the receiver are set to Mono (one Sub, two Subs, five Subs, doesn't matter, you don't want stereo Subs)
Place your Sub, connect it to either of the LFE outputs. Leave it alone from there....(except if you need to do an adjustment in the Sub itself)
Then, set your Fronts to Large, adjust the volume dials for the subs on the speakers according to taste.
-Listen for a bit-
Next, reset the Fronts to Small w/ a 40Hz crossover, readjust the volume dials on the speakers if needed.
-Listen a bit-
Then simply repeat this process by increasing the crossover frequency by 10hz at a time until you get to 150Hz.
Simply make a note of which settings sounded best to you in your room.
With the receiver still set to Small and 150Hz, connect the Y splitter to the other LFE output and cables to the Fronts.
** At this time, move your Sub to the rear of the room, if it isn't already, preferably between the Fronts, creating a large V pattern front to rear in your space. If you can't do this, it's not the end of the world, but you want to mirror the Subs in the Front best you can, at the very least get it behind the seats somewhere if at all possible.**
(The correct placement for one Sub, is almost never the correct placement for two or more)
Then reverse the process with the crossover settings, Listen - drop 10Hz - Listen - drop 10 Hz, until it just doesn't sound right.
Then simply choose the setup you like best.
