    Finally received my df monolith, ran audyssey on the full 8 positions and it set my fronts and centre to 40hz and surrounds to 60hz,sub to 80hz. Tested out sound quality with various dvd's and it sounds full on and open but is it true that i can increase the crossover on all speakers so that the monolith does more bass work which in turn makes the remaining speakers easier to run therefore adding headroom to the overall sound, will altering these crossover settings make the audyssey results devoid, for want of a better word... cheers

    I think you need to set the crossover on the sub to off (or max) and let the amp handle the crossovers. Check all speakers are set to small and set the crossover on the amp to 80Hz for all channels as a starting point.

    You are correct in that with the satellite speakers working in a restricted range (above 80Hz) you will get better performance, the amp will also be less stressed giving you more headroom.
