I have a Denon 1611, and front speakers with the following specs:


Impedance: 8 Ohms

Frequency Response: 42 Hz - 20,000 Hz

Power Handling Capacity: 80 Watts Nominal, 160 Maximum

Sensitivity: 89 +/- 2db (1.0M/2.83V)


Recently I just bought a sub-woofer with the following spec:


8" Home Theater 250 Watt Powered Slim Subwoofer

100 Watts RMS & 250 Watts Max In Cabinet Amplifier

35-150 Hz Frequency Response

24 db per Octave Crossover

High Level Input L/R Speaker Spring Terminals



(1) In the back of the sub, there's a dial of "Frequency", which goes from 40 to 140, where should I put it?

(2) Should my front speakers be set as Small or Large, in the recevier ? I read in the manual that it should be large if it can play back low freq., but without a reference of how low the "low frequency" is??

(3) On my Denon, under 4-1 Speaker Setup, Bass Setting, Subwoofer mode,should I set LFE or LFE + Main?

(4) There is an additional setting of "Crossover frequency" available, what should I set it at ?

*Thanks in advance to anyone who give me some hints.
