If you have then use it, no fun bottoming a sub out cause you didn't bother to use the SSF built into the amp.
Set it just below your box tuning.

i would normally leave the filter off for a sealed box and for a ported you want it on and set just under tuning frequency.

With that particular amp you IF is hard set at 28hz. You may still get some unloading under tuning depending on the environment (and other variable factors).

Leave it on either way. If you get unloading adjust your volume or listening content.

Short answer is ^ X2. Too bad it's either on or off and not adjustable, but with it being set @28hz it is fine for most applications.

What is your box tuned to? Are you using it for music only? I would say as long as you are tuned to 30hz or higher, and you are just using it for music then yes, leave it on.

Edit: just noticed you said tuned to 35hz
