Running svs speakers off my denon x3200w questions.

So I just received my speakers. I'm running svs prime towers, ultra center, 4 prime sats for surrounds, and 2 pb2000. I know I don't have the most powerful receiver, I want to utalize it as best as possibly. I heard setting the speaker crossover below 80 forces the avr to work much harder. Do you guys recommend the crossover at 80? Or could 60 for the fronts be ok?

I just want to make sure I'm not taxing my avr when I have so much available power for the low end. Thanks!

60Hz would be fine for the fronts. Your x3200 should have no issues running 60Hz. Utilize them primes, don't hamper them. You might want to try 40Hz as well, again with no issue.. Run them full range in 2 channel mode as well. There is a setting in the X3200's menu.

Would they be any more or less dynamic with a higher crossover as I get closer to ref volume? I haven't pushed them too hard yet, I'm still breaking it in

With two excellent subs why don't you let them do the low end work?

Since you have all the equipment try it both at 60hz and 80hz and see what sounds best to you. It's not like your receiver will blow up using either setting.

I assume you only mean the towers crossed over at 60hz? No reason do that that for the center or bookshelf speakers.

correct, the others are crossed over at 80.
