It all depends on if you have a matching sub. If you have a matching sub then everything should be set to small. even tower speakers. What I mean by a matching sub is a sub that can match (or exceed) the capabilities of your speakers. Typically you would want to set the crossover point a minimum of one octave above the the -3db point of your speakers. So if your speakers had a -3db point of 30hz, you would use 60hz. If your speakers have a -3db point of 40hz, you would set the crossover point at 80hz.


Note that I said this is the minimum crossover point. Even if you can go below 80hz with the crossover point, you should try 80hz and see if you like that better. Try not to go above 80hz with the crossover point because the sound from the sub can be localized above 80hz. In other words sounds that should sound like they are coming from your speakers will be heard coming from your sub. Usually you can't detect direction for sounds below 80hz.
