    Audyssey is notorious for listing most floorstanding speakers as full band. It did the same to my Monitor 60's. I set the crossover to 70 and called it a day.

    A Sony POS sub might not even be capable of playing as low as your 70s. If that's the case, you may want to just try setting the speakers to full range and eliminate the sub for now. Look up the sub model number and see what the specs are.

    Turn the crossover on the sub all the way up and adjust the crossover in the receivers menu at around 70. That Sony sub is not the best my friend. Do your speakers sound like they are overpowering the sub ? If so, just take the sub out of the mix, in the menu set the sub to "no", the receiver will route the sub signal to all other full range speakers.
