I don't think we can stop Bob from saying anything at all today. Must have been discount day at JP's Drug Emporium.

Em, you may want to just switch off the sub for LPs if you start getting and low-level rumble (feedback) issues with your turntable. Receivers with a rumble or infrasonic filter cut out the VERY low frequencies for that reason.

The instruction manual for setup isn't bad. It has you adjusting things by ear. And judging if there is too much mid-bass (indicated by having the Frequency setting too high, and causing a large overlap between the sub and mains). And quickly covers the interplay between the Frequency and Level controls.

you know, I was thinking that very thing. It just doesn't seem to require it.
But then I've only very recently started using my TT again.
Got a nice new stylus coming today, so I will revisit this whole issue.

I hate to think the only reason I feel I don't need the sub with LP's is that I'm getting some kind of "rumble" which is fooling me into thinking I'm feeling deep bass! ha! could be...

For the most part, subs and turntables didn't exist at the same time.

When TT were popular, subs hadn't entered the picture yet for most people. Yet, electronics manufacturers were still offering those infrasonic filters for people who had problems with rumble due to speaker/TT positioning or speaker systems that offered pretty low bass. Now, those switches don't seem to exist anymore, even though TT have made a bit of a comeback and people are using them in systems with subs.

I don't think you'll be missing out on any actual music info if you simply switch off the sub when listening to the TT. I don't remember what speakers you have (M22s or M3s maybe?), but certainly if they are floorstanders, you could run those full-range and get all the bass you'll extract with your TT!
