Ok, let me see if I understand correctly, I should set the sub's xover as high as it will go on the sub and let my avr handle the xover? Also, the lower the number, the higher the frequency? (40 hz is high 200hz is low)?
Yes, either move the sub's crossover to max setting or use an LFE input on the sub (which would bypass the crossover on the sub), and let the avr do the crossover. Lowest frequency is the lower number (Hz = cycles per second). General THX crossover is recommended for 80Hz, but keep in mind it's not a specific point type of crossover but defining a beginning point for a slope, so even when you set a crossover at 80 doesn't mean your main speakers won't put out sound below 80Hz, they're just being instructed to put out less and less as the frequency drops). I'd try 80 first, then 60 (override your avr's recommendation after you run Audyssey).
