BIC Venturi V1020 10" Powered Subwoofer 160W
Does this sub suffer from the same Auto-On problem as the Dayton subs? ( Does not come on automatically unless the volume is turned up quite loud; no auto-on response at low volume )
It has high level but what about line level (rca) and subwoofer input?
Yes this has a single line level input.

does it have an on/off switch, and/or is it auto on/off?
This subwoofer has OFF, AUTO and ON features.

Is there a high-pass filter on the output?
I can't seem to get an accurate answer to this question. Do the output jacks have any high-pass filtering? In other words, if you set the sub at 100Hz for example, when you connect the satellites to this sub's output jacks, will only frequencies above 100Hz be passed to the satellites?Or, are the output jacks simply jumpered to the input jacks, thereby passing the full signal to the satellite speakers?If anyone here actually owns this sub, this should be easily to determine by simply checking for continuity with an ohmmeter between the input jacks and satellite output jacks.I know that most cheap subs, such as the Dayton Audio and other similar ones, actually tell you in the manual that the input and output jacks are jumped together and those subs have no high pass filtering.FWIW -- I asked this question to a BIC email support tech, and he said this sub ~does~ have high-pass filtering, but I find that answer very very unlikely, which is why I am hoping someone else can confirm or dispute that answer.
There is no way for us to test this without unboxing a brand new unit and having to re-sell it as used. If the manufacture states there is a high pass on the output there likely is. This is common with speaker level inputs and outputs on subwoofers like this.

Low pass range and slope
This is not given in the details. I'd like to know the range of low pass frequencies, and the low pass filter slope.
A subwoofer doesn't have terms the same as a crossover.It has a Frequency response of 26-180 Hz at rated output.

So then is this sub downfiring?
Yes, this is a down firing ported subwoofer configuration. do you have any other questions?
