Check out this article.

Also, there are white papers on this at Dolby.com. I'm too sick to find them right now...

Jason(and Jay) the point about using a 120Hz LFE setting isn't strange, since as Dave(dewd)has pointed out it refers only to the upper limit of the sub for LFE material and doesn't affect the crossover frequency(say 80Hz)for handling bass redirected from speakers set "small". The LFE channel theoretically extends to 120Hz, but in practice very little if any content is inserted above about 80Hz. The reason for not setting the LFE filter control to the full 120Hz is that there may be some extraneous noise(very little)up there; others want to set it at 120Hz to be certain of getting all the LFE content. Either way, it doesn't appear to be very significant to me, although the author of those suggestions apparently feels otherwise.

Thanks Dave and JohnK, I wasn't really thinking about the strictly .1 LFE channel, now I get it.

Aha - thanks JohnK and Dewd, makes more sense now.

Also, for anyone who is interested, this was the earlier discussion on "reference" level volume.
