Am I losing sound between 90-150, if I set it to 150?
Set it to SMALL. The Crossover will still be adjustable, so set it to 80 Hz.

Give it a few days to break in.

I just bought the SPL meter from radioshack. I'll be messing with setups this weekend. But I'm already having fun with system. Thanks for the great product.

Leave them at 0. Use the SUBWOOFER level control on the receiver to fine-tune the subwoofer's volume to the rest of the system at normal listening levels, in your listening seat.
