Can anyone recommend proper crossover and filter settings for this sub? I'm running this with Polk RM95 5.1 surround on an Onkyo NR-515 receiver.

YOUR Onkyo has Audessey room calibration, use IT to set up the subwoofer.

I'd set the Onkyo A/V receiver to 'small' mains and just connect it's sub-woofer output to the LFE input on the Polk PSW505. Play something 'bassy' and switch the phase 180 degrees to see which produces the greatest amount of bass - leave it there. Adjust the bass level as desired.

the phase control is going to change your bass sound, as you're playing your sub switch it in your hear the difference. the crossover I would set it between 60 and 80 if you have larger speakers,

What's the frequency response of the mains? You will likely see the need to adjust the sub's high end slightly above the low end of the mains, using a cable into the l/r input jacks. Or you could use the crossovers in the receiver, set the speakers to small, crossover wherever you think the low end drops off on the mai… see more What's the frequency response of the mains?

Or you could use the crossovers in the receiver, set the speakers to small, crossover wherever you think the low end drops off on the mains... usually 10 hz above the listed specs. Then connect the sub the the lfe input, that bypasses the crossover in the sub. see less What's the frequency response of the mains?
