I am not using my Denon's auto calibration, which came up with a crossover setting of 80Hz, only for the center channel, for some odd reason.
In my Denon AVR2808CI receiver, if one wants to set xover manually, he can set xover from 40Hz to 250Hz or so for all channels. Alternatively, he can set it for each channel under an "advanced" setting which comes before the 40Hz setting. In this case the same range from 40Hz to 250Hz is available for all channels except LFE, which can be set only between 80Hz to 250Hz.

80Hz, only for the center channel. I don't why it did not set a xover for other channels.
Update to my previous post
: All in all, there seems to be 5 different settings, 3 recommended by different pieces of equipment in my system, and 1 by the so-called rule of thumb, and 1 that recommends different settings for rear speakers: My AVR recommends 80Hz (for center channel only, for some odd reason), Aperion recommends 80Hz, HSU recommends 90Hz. Then there is this rule of thumb of adding 10Hz or 20Hz to the buttom frequency response, which yields to different settings to my 5B and 5C speakers, despite Aperion recommends the same setting because their buttom frequnecy response value are different. Last, according what I read in a forum, some people applies +20Hz to their surround speakers.
1) Have you guys heard of this so-called rule of thumb of adding 10Hz or 20Hz to the buttom frequency response?
2) Have you heard of applying +20Hz more to the rear speakers?
3) Audyssey came up with -12db channel level for the subwoofer. Is this normal? Because, compared to my other speakers, this is way low.
4) Why did Audyssey came up with a xover setting of 80Hz only for the center channel? In other words, why it did not come up with a xover setting for front and rear speakers as well as the subwoofer? Is this normal?
5) Would you apply one xover setting to all speakers or different for each? What would be your setting?
