Can you explain how YPAO decides the crossover?...

Can you explain how YPAO decides the crossover? Is it based on all 5 speakers aside from the subwoofer or just the fronts? And if it's just the fronts, is it all 3 or just the left and right?

Currently, I have it at 110Hz and I've always stuck to setting all speakers to small. I noticed yesterday while watching FURY (BD version) that 120Hz had more intensity to the bass but at the expense...

The last time in this thread I did that I didn't have the Sony Cores and the receiver was set to 6 ohms. Since then the fronts have changed and I've stuck to the 8 ohms setting. YPAO likes 80 Hz but...
