Of course there are always instances where one would have to line in for HT and if your speakers only go down to 120Hz I could see this being an issue.
And that folks is why it's called "clear as mud."
Several schools of thought going on in your above.
One school, there's no "real" usable content in the LFE channel above 80Hz and you should limit the subs to 80Hz
One school says to cross your speakers over at their -3dB low point or about 60Hz or 80Hz and set the sub limit potentiometer to 120Hz and another says -10dB and you're there.
One school is about the THX reference standard and one says there's content below THX reference that should be amplified to +/-3dB at 115dB.
One says; "Honey, where's that beer, the show's about to start." (doesn't care school of thought)
One school listens to music and HT and the other school listens to HT and music.
One schools says plaster room treatments all over the floor, the walls and the ceiling while the other school says buy a Denon, AVR 4311ci, be done with it, be happy and have a good life.
One school wants musical subwoofers and the other wants a thump in the chest and a kick in the pants while another school is worried about quality of sound and price but at the same time, worries about the neighbor down the hall.
One school wants a perfectly flat line from zero to 20k and another school has the WAF to deal with and is happy with any null that doesn't exceed 9dB..
Yep, got all that from your above, I did.
