I dont trust the receiver's software, so i dont want a suggestion of, just run the receiver's software and let it set it. im setting it manually.
The only issue is that the higher the frequency being played, the more directional the sound. A sub should be invisible in the room. I like around 80hz myself for theater. At 120 you may be able to tell where some of the bass is coming from. That's the main disadvantage. You'd ideally want the speaker best at playing the sound frequency to be the one to handle it.
