Try this to get started:

1. If you haven't already found the best location for your subwoofer, perform the Subwoofer Crawl to determine it.
2. Assuming you're using the Klipsch SW-15, turn the Low Pass control on the sub to 120Hz or the highest it will go (to effectively take if out of the crossover equation - the AVR will handle it).
3. Run Audyssey. Adjust the Level control on the sub until Audyssey sets a -6 to -9 subwoofer Level setting in the AVR (you'll probably need to rerun the Audyssey #1 position calibration several times.
4. Once Audyssey is complete, change the speaker type to Small (this enables bass management in the AVR).
5. Change the Crossovers for your LCR in the AVR to 80Hz.
6. Increase the Subwoofer Level in the AVR by +6dB (e.g. if the original level was -9, then adjusting by +6 will give you a final setting of -3).
7. Set the LPF of LFE to 120Hz.
8. Set Dynamic Volume (DVol) to DISABLED.
9. Set Low Frequency Containment to DISABLED.
10. Set Dynamic EQ (DEQ) to ENABLED.
11. Listen to some music. If you think the top end is missing a little "sparkle", change the Audyssey curve to Audyssey Flat. YMMV.
12. I find that for movies, I need to reduce the level for the Surrounds by -4dB, otherwise they are overpowering in my setup. YMMV.

Hopefully this will get you close enough where all you'll need to do is some minor tweaking (unless you decide to start doing measurements..that's another rabbit hole altogether). Good luck.
