The 5T goes down to 55hz +/-3db. The 6T goes down to 36hz +/-3db.
You can find the specs on the Aperion Audio web site.
As for the crossover setting, you'll need to experient to see which setting sounds best in your room depending upon the speakers you chose, the electronics you select, your subwoofer and your room.
I have the 6B speakers and cross them over at 60hz most of the time - they go down to 48 hz +/- 3db as I recall. However, I do run them standalone sometimes for 2 channel listening with good results.
With the 5T I would sugest you start at 80 hz and see if that sounds good to you. With the 6T I would start at 50 hz or 60hz. But that's just one man's opinion.
