This is where more capable subs make a big difference, because the lower frequencies are where the power gets consumed. It is generally better to set the crossover higher if you can (just short of sub localization) as this takes a load off your receiver and main speakers.
Agreed! Setting your crossover at 80hz and maybe turn down the gain on your sub to 9 o'clock with all speakers set to small ( adjust sub level on the AVR ) with LPF at 120hz, That should help some. Sub placement may also be contributing to your issues.
