You might try connecting the sub out of your recevier to the subwoofer line in or lfe in depending on how the receiver says to hook it up. Then in your receiver settings for speaker setup set the sub to left+right+lfe and set the cross-over frequency to around 80 or 60 hz. This way the receiver handles the crossover instead of the sub. Hope this helps. Paul.
