Grant:  I just checked mine and it appears to do the same thing.  Setting up 
the Main at LSB, BW=1800, PBT=0,  and the same thing on the Sub, there is a 
very noticeable difference.  Tweaking the Sub PBT to +700 makes them sound 
about the same.

Of course, I also get the 'swishing' noise with both receivers on since the 
main and sub are about 6 Hz off on all bands as I have noted before.  I sent 
in my "wish list" from my web site to TT today and noted that problem along 
with a suggestion that the offset be adjustable by a menu option.
