In addition, overall bass appears to be coming from a bit higher up. I'm pretty sure it's just me hearing bass frequencies above 80Hz coming directly from the mains.

In my experience, trends emerge that apply pretty uniformly provided the sample size is large enough. Also, I really don't want to have this debate as it's not helpful to my situation.

The real question is what advantages (if any) are there of a crossover lower than 120Hz? (Keeping in mind I can't localize the sub at all in its current position under the front left speaker.)
