    Where you set your crossover really depends on the speakers that you have. I believe the SVS subs top out at 100hz so I would set the crossover at 90hz or less, depending on how low the rest of your speakers can go. I would think that 90hz would be a safe crossover point.

    Set the receiver's crossover to 80. Set the sub's crossover to off. Set all speakers to small. Setup the art with the main speakers running. You want the sum of all speakers to be flat. If you equalize with the sub playing by itself, you will create a hump around 85 Hz the mains & center make their contribution.

    Gene- You should test the following 1st:

    1) sub by itself

    2) mains by themselves

    3) sub + mains

    At least 1 octave above and below the crossover you pick (80 Hz is a good compromise), #3 should measure greater than 1 and 2. If not, then you need to adjust the phase between the sub and mains too.

    Then you can worry about filtering out the peaks. (And then do another phase check at the end.)
