I have the manual for this amplifier but have a few questions about what some of the setting should be. Here is my set-up

Pioneer SA-9500
Pioneer SG-9500
Pioneer RT-707
Pioneer TX-9100
Pioneer CT-W530R
Technics SL-1600
Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-280F
BIC America F12 subwoofer

What should the following be set to?

bass turn over..100Hz, 200Hz or 400Hz
treble turn over...2kHz, 4kHz or 8kHz
low filter switch... 15Hz, OFF or 30Hz
high filter switch...12kHz, OFF or 8kHz
Attenuator Switch...0dB, -15dB or -30dB

Thanks in advance for helping me out!!!!!

Actually there are no wrong or right, those adjustments help suit the sound to your set up and taste. So put a song on you are familiar with and try the adjustments one area at a time and leave them where they sound best to you.

I would say since you are using a sub you may want to set your low filter to 30 Hz.

The attenuation is an exception to the above, I'm not sure what that does, or should I say, what it attenuates. :)

I had a Sansui integrated with the turnover points. I think I like my bass at a lower turnover, Can't remember the treble.
