Try increasing the dial position higher before running Audyssey.. 150Hz is in the crossover region to the bass drivers. Audyssey calibrates by emitting the test tones and measuring them with the microphone. It determines the cutoff point for its correction by the measured F3 point of the speaker (where the frequency response drops 3db). It then passes the F3 frequency info to the avr, where the avr manufacturer determines the crossover setting. If the powered sub is set at a slightly low level, Audyssey might detect the crossover from the midrange to the internal subs as the F3 point.
In certain cases, it may also be possible for your room to be causing a dip in the frequency response that Audyssey may misconstrue as the F3 point. In that case, try pulling the speakers out further from the front wall, to see if the XO changes.

It's not that Audyssey and GE don't get along, it's simply that the GE specs are a little optimistic. Many speaker manufacturers provide anechoic (or at the very least, in-room) frequency response specs +/- 3db. GE just posts 'Frequency Response'. Unfortunately, their response specs aren't close to +/- 3db. The SS50C that I had doesn't come close to the claimed 60 Hz at anywhere near -3db anechoic, which is why Audyssey tends to cross it over at ~120Hz. The specs quoted on GE's site apparently include the lowest frequency that the speaker makes ANY sound at all, no matter how low in level.
The only way to properly reduce the crossover is to attempt to use boundary reinforcement by either wall mounting the SS series or mounting them very close to large surfaces behind them (which tend to cause their own acoustic issues). This tends to reinforce the lower frequencies producing a lower crossover point. If you place the SS speakers 12" or more from reflecting surfaces, there isn't sufficient boundary reinforcement for the lower frequencies.
If you don't believe me, try using something like Omnimic, REW or XTZ. Apparently, the majority of GE owners are allergic to the 'trust, but verify' school of thought.
