If your sub doesn't automatically cut out the crossover/lpf with a dedicated lfe connection, just turn it to max and let your avr do the bass management. 80 hz crossover is a good starting point generally, but if you're talking about the LPF of the LFE channel setting in your avr (if you have such) use 120. What specific gear do you have?

That depends on how low your mains will comfortably go. Read your AVR manual.

He doesn't mean your receiver's crossover setting. He means your sub's low-pass setting.

Your post's title is misleading.

This depends upon (among several other things) your speakers' capability. Without any knowledge of this, no one here could possibly answer your question.

And even if we did know your speakers and their specs, we still can't really answer this question for you.
