Two questions about using STF-2 w/stereo receiver

I'm trying to figure out a way to use the STF-2 or maybe the STF-1 with my Onkyo TX-8511 stereo receiver. It has a TAPE-2 Monitor loop that is like preout/main-in jacks, but is before the volume control. I want to highpass the mains. I was thinking of using a cheap passive line-level highpass filter and splitting the signal at the CD player or the tape loop, but Dr. Hsu pointed out that this would drive me crazy because I would have to readjust the sub level every time I changed the volume.

I was wondering whether I could put the Hsu highpass filter box in the tape loop and use it to control the volume of both the mains and the sub. I understand that I might not have the full range of volume settings that I would have with the receiver volume control, but that is probably okay because I could just switch the tape loop off and listen without the sub at low volumes.

I was also wondering whether the STF-2 has a speaker-level highpass, and what its freq. and slope are.

To use the Hsu high pass filter you need to have preouts in the reciever.The Onkyo TX-8511 does not have preouts.So I guess the answer to your question would be I don't think it would work in the way you desribe.

You may want to investigate the Paradigm X series of sub controllers. I haven't worked with them myself, but the specs on Paradigm's web site indicate they provide high-pass filtering through speaker-level inputs. Also, they seem to provide a line-level sub out so that you can connect it to the single line level sub input on the STF-2.
