I have Polk RT2000P mains which have dual 8" woofers powered by 200 watt amps. I cross them at 35hz (-3db point is just below that). I don't understand why there is any controversy about this anyway. Weather you have bookshelf speakers that you have to cross at 100hz, or unpowered towers you have to cross at 60hz or powered towers you have to cross at 40hz, it's all the same as long as you cross them slightly above the -3db point. My next speakers are likely to be Goldenear Ones. These have 1600 watt amps and a large surface area, so they will likely cross even lower or maybe even handle running as large. Run what you like, but blend (cross) them properly to get a seamless frequency sweep and you will be happy.
