    If I want to send the LFE channel to the sub and, with an 80Hz cross-over, send sub-80Hz signals to the sub and to the channel's speaker, where that speaker is set to Large, do I select "Bass out -- Both" on my receiver? (See manual extract below.)

    ---
    Bass Out (Bass out)
    LFE signals carry low-frequency effects when this unit
    decodes Dolby Digital or DTS signals. These low frequency
    signals can be directed to both front left and
    right speakers, and to the subwoofer (which can be used
    for both stereo reproduction and sound field programs).
    Choices: Both, SWFR, Front
    You may not be able to select certain items depending on your
    subwoofer configuration (Config.) settings.
    • Select Both to direct LFE signals to the subwoofer.
    Front L/R low-frequency signals are directed to both
    the subwoofer and front channels, and all other low frequency
    signals are directed in accordance with other
    speaker settings.
    • Select SWFR if you connected a subwoofer. The unit
    directs all LFE and low-frequency signals in
    accordance with other speaker settings.
    • Select Front if you have not connected a subwoofer.
    The unit directs all low-frequency and LFE signals to
    the front speakers (even if you have previously set
    Front to Small in Speaker Set).

    All amps seem to be slightly different but according to the text above selecting "Both" should give you what you are after.
