Well, like I said in post #17, I was apparently mistaken in saying they are subs. Attribute it to my lack of audio knowledge.

Since they are all wired up as one unit I'm am going to make the assumption that those 12'' speakers aren't really subs. They are just large floorstanding speakers. A subwoofer is a speaker specifically optimized for low frequency, not just a big speaker. I've seen 6'' subs before.
I don't even know how you came up with that assumption. Tweeters are not made to handle low frequencies at all. 600Hz to 1,200Hz is the midrange. Tweeters usually handle 1,000 Hz and above, but will usually get crossed over much higher than that.

A proper speaker that includes all ranges will have a proper crossover for each range.

Glad you got it worked out. I knew what the problem was in your first post.

That LFE setting on budget receivers is useless. It's already set +10dB from the factory.

In most receivers (yours included) the subwoofer output handles the LFE (Low Frequency Effect), so the naming/references in the setup menu; Sub/LFE are synonymous in this case. If the subwoofer is set to "off/no sub", the LFE "cut/attenuation" (0 to -10db) will have no effect in your setup, as this setting only adjusts the output "line" signal of the subwoofer connection on the amp.

Like I said, you need a sub unless you want to ghetto rig them like your buddy did with 2 receivers. Sorry for the sarcasm.

For pounding bass, yes, I agree. However, I live in a small apartment so they are sufficient the way they are now.

Plus, if that's how those huge speakers are going to sound if I use a dedicated sub, it seems like a complete waste of space as they wouldn't apparently be being utilized. I could just as easily use some of my smaller speakers and get the same sound if I buy a dedicated powered sub.
