    I have just added a new sub to my system and am curious about where I should set the crossover on the reciever. My equipment is as follows

    Denon 2802 Receiver
    crossover 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz

    Mirage AVS 200 mains / surrounds
    Freq Range 90Hz - 20KHz

    Mirage AVS 100 Center
    Freq Range 90Hz - 20KHz

    Velodyne VX10 Subwoofer
    Freq Range 36Hz - 120Hz

    I was thinking that since the range on the Mirage are 90Hz - 20Khz and the sub is 36Hz to 120Hz that I should set the crossover at 100Hz which is half way between the mirage low end and the sub high end, but I hahve also read alot of recommendations to set the crossover at 80 for HT applications. What do you guys recommend?

    100hz... You don't want to go below your mains, and you want some wiggle room. Any higher and the sub will really start to localize where the lows are actually comming from.

    I run my sub at 80 hz and my mids and highs at 100hz, I like to feel the earthquake, if you know what I mean.
