if u have bose speakers any other receiver will not make any difference, your bose are not capable of producing high quality sound from a good receiver and believe me for bose speakers the cross over setting will be 200 (check bose manual you will find no setting related to sound spec. on any bose speakers). Crossover setting is good for mostly speaker capable of producing better midlevel sound.
keep your kenwood, if you change speakers only your kenwood will come alive.

THANK YOU for the info.i am going to keep my bose speakers i like them i am in a small apartment and they sound ok for my little room. when i was in the bose store a couple of days ago they had the same speakers i have hooked up to a onkyo receiver and i thought they sounded clearer than my speakers so do you think the onkyo 504 would make any difference than my cheap kenwood? THANK YOU

If you set all speakers to SMALL when configuring speakers of your system in the a/v the a/v Crossover setting of 80 Hz will cause frequencies of 80 Hz and lower plus LFE to go to your subwoofer. That is the recommended configuration.

Note: Disable the crossover at the sub by either setting the toggle control to OFF or by setting the crossover to the highest setting.

The speaker setting to LARGE requires full range speakers which can deliver low frequencies (expensive speakers).
