    What do you need help with? There is a sticky post at the top of the AVR Forum re. bass management. That is a good place to start. There is also an owners thread for your receiver HERE. Ultimately if you need some help, you are going to have to be more specific as "need help" doesn't give us much to go on. Give as much information as possible e.g. speakers, frequency response if known etc.

    Check the frequency response for each speaker and set the lower figure as the crossover.

    If in doubt, set the speakers to SMALL and the crossover to 80Hz but to be exact you're going to have to check the specifications of your speakers in their manual.

    as dave said above and do you have a sub if so set the lpf to 120hz, and if its amplified set the freqency to full and the volume to suit your needs.

    It is generally advised to define all speakers as being small and use a crossover cutoff regardless of the physical size of your speakers. 80Hz is a commonly used crossover and a good place to start.
