Subwoofer Phase Switch

Q. What does the "Phase" switch on my subwoofer do? Do I set it to 0 or 180?

Subwoofer phase

A. It synchronizes the in-and-out movement of your sub's woofer with the woofers in the rest of your system so that when the subwoofer cone is "pushing" air out, the other woofer diaphragms are also moving outward. If your subwoofer is on the same plane as your front speakers then set the subwoofer phase switch to 0. If your subwoofer is located anywhere else then try the phase switch in both positions and set it to the position that produces the strongest bass at your listening position. Given the vagaries of bass standing waves that result in all rooms, you may notice no difference at all, in which case set the switch to 0.

Once the subwoofer phase switch is set, check out our sub placement tips.
