    set it on bypass, I did with mine. Your internal amp crossover on the denon should be controlling the crossover point.

    my amp was on the THX crossover (Denon AVC11SR).

    My speakers therefore cut at 80hz and the sub kicks in just below 80 Hz. The slope in your amp means that your fronts don't suddently disappear at crossover (depending on their characteristics) but the do become less loud. This is one of the reasons you don't need to specifically match the two crossovers.

    60Hz seemns a little low to me but I can see in some instances where this would work.
