Something else to remember, the cs8060 uses 4.5" drivers, which can be a little harsher on vocals and spoken word than a 5.25" or 6.5" driver, so balance between the built in Woofer and placement (in the open, in a cabinet) will play a much larger part.

Don't worry about the "rules" as such, pick what settings you like the sound of best.

Oh... One thing besides actual placement is first reflection, depending on how high your Center is and what kind of floor you have will also make a big difference in the lower portion of the frequencies covered buy the 4.5" drivers and the tweeter, a carpeted flour our throw rug in front of the Center at the first reflection point will make a difference in the depth/tone of the sound -vs- ceramic tile or hard wood. This is one of the reasons it's suggested to have your Center out in the open or as far forward as possible if it's in a cabinet, even a couple of inches of wood around it will cause the speaker to sound more harsh and tinny.
It's on top of an entertainment center, ab 10 ft from the Vp and 5.5 ft in the air, angled down. Carpeted living room. Shouldn't the woofer pick up anything the 4.25 drivers can't handle?

You will almost always have better results setting your speakers to Small an crossing them at 80hz or 60hz. The woofer in the center speaker is there to enhance mid range frequencies.

I would never recommend engaging the LFE+Mains setting. This often times will cause bass cancellation issues.
I have. Ran it again this am. Left the center at 12. Audyssey calibrated to small w a 60hz xo. No sub currently so no lfe+main to speak of . haven't had a chance to play w it yet but hoping that helps.
