Audyssey set the crossover of the speakers at 150 - does that sound about right? Thanks for the help!

May I ask, what is the model no: of the new Onkyo AVR that you have? I ask, as being a new/newer model, I am a little surprised that it does not offer you the option of of setting the sub's crossover on it, especially since it seems to have Audyssey? Maybe others more in the know can chime in in this!

I would set the X/O at the back on the sub at 150 as Audyssey suggests - it seems about right although if the Mirage sub settings go higher, play around between 150 & possibly a little higher if need be.

It is an Onkyo TX-NR616. It came out in mid 2012 so it is a little older. This is kind of an in-betweener purchase. I wanted to get a receiver that is full 4k ready, like a Denon X4100 but can't justify the cost when there isn't much if anything using this, and I don't have a 4k TV yet. So, I found this one on a closeout and I had been wanting to try an Onkyo, so this receiver fell in my lap. I have to say it's a pretty big step up from the Denon 988 I had in terms of sound and picture quality. Pretty happy with it so far.
