Do eeeeeet! Running SM65's I'm bucking the convention of setting Surrounds at 80hz, instead running them at 40hz (the lowest my Marantz receiver will allow, and where Audyssey sets the calibration out-of-the-box). I've experimented with raising the crossovers to 80hz, but at least for me, the surround effect is more immersive with the lower crossover setting...mainly in thunderstorm scenes and such. It's damn impressive at 40hz.
*edit* No measurements to back up my personal impression...all just seat-of-the-earball.
