You also want to go in to the LPF of the LFE and change it to 120 Hz and are correct in leaving the Double Bass Off.
Thanks! For clarification, what (in laymen's terms) am I trying to accomplish by setting the F-3 crossover to 60Hz instead of 40Hz (since they can actually go down to 32Hz)? My guess would be that I might start losing some midrange audio if I did this (but I'm certainly not sure as I'm very new to this). And even though the S-2 surrounds were auto-set to 80Hz (THX), they "technically" can't get down to 80Hz... so won't that create distortion out of those speakers?
Lastly, by raising the SUB-12 bass level from 80Hz to 120Hz, what am I doing? Won't that decrease the performance by increasing the low pass frequency and thus reducing how low my SUB-12 can go?
It sounds like I should should "trust" the Audyssey mic, even though it set some of my speakers at a frequency below their rating. But maybe with a bit of tuning and research on this site, I can play with the settings to finely tune the sound arena in my living room... I guess that's where I'm at now and just looking for others' experiences with these speakers at various frequencies.
