    Default Crossover setting for speakers?

    I built my "Mancave" addition on to our house three years ago and installed a 7.1 home theater using Polk speakers. I used a CSi5 for the center, two RTi10's for the front surround, and four RC60i's for the rear side surround and rear center speakers hooked up to an Onkyo TX-SR703 receiver. The subwoofer is a Velodyne DPS-10. This week I stepped up to Blueray and 1080P, so I'm finally getting around to optimizing my sound setup. I want to set the proper crossover points in my receiver, and I'm trying to find the right values.

    My receiver manual says to refer to my speaker manuals, but I'm not finding what I want. The receiver crossover values that I can set for the speakers are: Full Band, 40 Hz, 60 Hz, 70 Hz, 80 Hz (THX), 90 Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz, 150 Hz, and 200 Hz.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Set the fronts to 60hz
    the rest to 100hz
    Also you should get an SPL meter for manually setting the levels. This one is just fine for HT setup.

    Here's a very informative article on the subject. Give it a read & experiment. As Ben stated an SPL meter is a must for a proper set up. Have fun dialing it in...in the end your listening tastes will be the final judge. Have some fun with it!!!
