make sure the fronts are set ot "large" and the sub cross over to 60Hz. 80 may end up sounding boomy. What other settings are you intreested in?

true. Your fronts should take care of until that point. If you feel its weak, you could do 2 things>

1. Raise the sub level (increase its volume so to speak)
2. Move up the xover to 80 and see how it sounds.

Don't do beyond 80 for floor standers though.

If you set your fronts to large, the AVR is smart enough to cover the freq response range upto your sub settings. There is no need to set cross over in your case (though there are some cases where one might). Also no need to set for center or surrounds.

You can set the level (loudness) if the AVR provides an option. Usually set the surrounds a bit higher as well as the center if you watch a lot of movies. You may have to adjust a few times to get the right level of loudness.
