The pains of getting use to the Excelon's. It's really not that difficult, but it is a learning process. I know for me it did take some time to get it all figured out, but after time, my X-990 became a sound quality lovers delight. Very precise and the time alignment is great. This deck sounds fabulous. As far as your LPF, is should adjust right along with the rest of your channels. It should read Front, Rear, and then Sub. To make a comment and say get a Alpine deck, is not needed in your case. Although, Alpine's are wonderful decks, and I would never say anything bad about them, I doesn't adress your issue. Hang in there and learn your deck, you will be very happy with your X-792 when you get all to come together.

Do you not have an owners manual?

to adjust xovers and such, push and hold the volume knob and it brings you into a sub menu for xovers front/rear/sub

just push the knob to bring up sub control/eq and such, then when you get to bass/mid/treble you can push and hold it, it will bring up where you can select the freq and Q value

if it is so much better than pioneer then why do 70% of competitors use pioneers?

thanks mld, but i have the manual already. i can set everything else except the subwoofer level/volume and the LPF. it seems like the HU skips over those when setting everything else. idk why. i'm guessing, therefore, that there must be an on/off option for the sub

found this on crutchfield:

Low-Pass Filter: The receiver features a built-in Low Pass Filter control for the preamp-output when the Subwoofer Output is "on". You can select from 50, 60, 80, 100,120Hz or Through. The "Through" setting allows your external amplifier's crossover network to do all the filtering for your subwoofer.

Subwoofer Level: Once you have switched the Subwoofer Output to "on" you can independently control the subwoofer preamp output level from the CD receiver. You select levels between -15 to +15.

Subwoofer Phase: You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer output between 180-degrees (Reverse) or 0-degrees (Normal).

how in the *** do i switch this on!?!?!??!
