Default Crossover Frequency

Can you tell from these specs what the sub woofer crossover frequency should be? I'm not good at reading the specs.

I would set the crossover at 80 hZ.

Thank you so much for your opinion. I checked last night to see what the YPAO set up and found the front speakers set to large and the crossover at 110hz. I changed the fronts to small and set the crossover at 80hz.

If I understand correctly, everything above 80hz will go to the front speakers and when it was set at 110hz everything above that would go to the fronts and the sub would handle everything below. Is that correct or is there some bass lost? How do I know if some bass is lost?

That is correct e surging a nice the crossover goes to the speaker s and e bugging below to the sub. You can get holes with some wrongly settings but you are fine. The train for 80hZ being the pretty much standard is due to the fax t that or brains can't localize (determine directionality of frequencies below 80 hz so the bass seems as if it is enveloping you. Setting it at 220 may have directed some vocals or otherto your sub at times w which doesn't sound right.

Thank you. I think I'm getting a better understanding. Last night I played the intro to "Spectre" and it was phenomenal. The bass was encompassing and impossible to pinpoint a direction.
