The question is can I cross the sub @ 80 Hz considering the fronts and center low end (45 & 58 Hz respectfully) even though that is crowding the low end response of the surrounds @ 78 Hz? I don't have a REW sample as yet and I'm aware that the results may make the question mute.

80Hz. may be a bit low with those specs..I would be more inclined to make your xover at 100Hz..and set your speakers to "small"..

Thanks for the reply. Just thought I might get away with 80hz on the surr's. I've read the surr's don't necessarily get as much of the low end.

Generally your xover frequency should be approx. double the lowest frequency of you front speakers..
In your case the centre speaker at 58Hz. would require a xover at 100Hz.

Since there is no separate xover adjustment for the surrounds with MCACC, it's not so critical..
My surrounds are 75Hz - 22KHz. and my fronts are 30Hz.- 20KHz.and I use an 80Hz. xover..
Best thing to do is to try both and see which one appeals to you..It's not set in concrete..
