    There is a pre/post switch that allows the d.i. signal to be affected by the preamp eq or to bypass.

    The manual says:

    "4. HPF Off/On switch - When on, the very lowest (subsonic) frequencies output
    by your Model 2000 are filtered (removed), providing protection to connected
    speakers. As a result, speaker movement (excursion) will be reduced, thus
    significantly extending the life of your speakers.

    We recommend that you keep the HPF Off/On switch at the “On” position
    at all times unless you are specifically using the Model 2000 with speakers
    specifically designed for ultra-low frequency reproduction (i.e. subwoofers).
    Speaker damage (to Hartke transducers) will not be covered by
    warranty if it is determined to have been caused by over-excursion."
