LFE, and the crossover frequency for speakers are totally different in receivers. LFE is totally independent of speaker crossover, and LFE is not a crossover at all in itself. Every movie has it's own separate LFE track, which doesn't affect the speakers at all. LFE at 120Hz can be localized, but it's only localized by very few people and most can't localize 120Hz. If you can't localize the bass, then why not send the whole 3Hz-120Hz LFE signal track to the sub? It's part of the movie that you will be missing, and the director intended for you to hear.
I definitely cannot localize my sub at 120Hz, and it sounds great.
