Need some help here. I have a new velodyne cht-10. I have a sub cable plugged into one of the input jacks (I don't have a "Y" splitter yet). I have the crossover knob set to 40hz. I have the switch on the back set to DIRECT. In my reciever (H/K 525), I have the crossover sedt to 40hz. I also have the sub control in my receiver that will allow me to control the sub volume as high as it will go, AND I have the volume control on the sub to MAX. But there isn't much at all coming trhough the sub. Even if I wanted to turn up the sub more, I can't since everything is at MAX. What is wrong here. I have another sub and I can't turn it nearly all the way up for fear of blowing it.

Ami I doing somethign wrong?

I guess we don't see anything wrong...
Try a higher crossover freq a little higher (or all the way up to see if anything comes out).

40Hz is pretty low. Only the deepest bass will come through the sub at that crossover.

THX recommends 80Hz.

I run mine at 60Hz since I have some good floorstanders which get down to 40Hz

Do you have the Sub cable coming from the correct output on the receiver? I believe that this is purple on the back of the receiver.

Do you have the sub turned on in the speaker set up menu? This should read SUB (LFE).
