Well, to split hairs, the receiver sets the crossovers based on the information provided by Audyssey. The programming that sets the crossovers is, in your case, Denon's not Audyssey's.

After you have run Audyssey you should review the speaker settings that the AVR has set and consider changing any speakers that are set to large to small with a suitable crossover (40hz for the M80s & VP180?).

True but it is Audyssey that tells the receiver what the crossover point is. It's not going to happen, unless manually, if there is not a program such as Adyussey.

I personally don't like it.

Just to be clear. From everything I’ve ever read the receiver not Audyssey sets the crossover frequencies of your speakers. Audyssey then calculates it’s EQ curves based on what the receiver gives it to work with.

Yep, Audyssey tells the receiver the frequency response it measures from the speaker, but then the receiver's logic sets the point based on that info.

So there is Very mixed feelings about the Audyssey system? Sorry i don't have Audyssey so i only know what you guys have said.. does it work very well typically? i just set my L/R/C to large and then cross over the Qs8's at 40hz, not very technical i know, but i figure why not use the speakers built in crossovers?

The speakers only cross between their own drivers. The upper and lower end are unbounded. The sub-woofer crossover stops the lowest frequencies from reaching the main speakers and sends it to the sub-woofer instead.

Have you tried 80 Hz all around? 40 Hz is pretty low for the QSs, you're likely missing some bass content that the surrounds are trying to play, and the sub isn't picking up.

Hi dakkon,

You should crossover your QS8 at 80Hz.
