    The 80, 100, and 120hz is the bass management setting for the receiver. When you set it at 80hz and the speakers to small then all bass ABOVE 80hz is sent to the mains, center, and surrounds. All bass BELOW 80hz is sent to the subwoofer. Generally speaking the lower the setting the better. The higher the frequency of sound the easier it is to 'locate' where it is coming from. With a subwoofer you don't want to locate its position, you want it to blend seamlessly with the other speakers. By using the lowest setting possible you are better able to achieve this blending.

    That's the quick and dirty answer. Yes, you need to indicate the setting that you want to use. I suggest starting with 80hz. I believe that the higher settings are aimed towards satellite speaker systems.
