Newbie here with a newbie question.

Why does Audyssey set the crossover to 40hz on floor standing 3-way mains if 80hz is desired (and seems to be pretty standard/common knowledge)?

Can I force Audyssey to leave the crossover point at 80hz? I assume this will effect the rest of the calibration, too.

Thanks all!
THANKS YOU for this thread...

my Fronts were set to LARGE & 40hz, also; had already changed FRONTs to SMALL, will try 80hz, too

The THX site shows 2 different 7.1 setups.
They do show that for the new uncompressed formats, the rears should be apart.

Re: How to Properly Setup Your AVR

I've also found that "Onkyo" receivers benefit changing the frequency to one group setting. In my setup that is 50 hz. Mind you I built my own center channel and refurbished my fronts Electrovoice Status 50's. I tried thr THX setting of 70hz or 80hz but the bass from the subs was overwhelming.
I seriously think group settings help by alleviating the processing load on the receiver. Picture of my new center
