Speaker Crossover Frequency Question (Audyssey DSX)

I have B&W bookshelf for the front and back. I just added a pair of B&W LM1 (smaller than bookshelf) speakers for the wide. I ran the Audyssey calibration and it set the front and back to 40HZ and the wide to 150HZ. My question is that shoud I change the wide to 40HZ instead? If I do, would it affect the EQ setting? Please advise. Thank you for your time.

    The placement of speakers in the room greatly affects their low frequency performance. That's why it's so important to measure and not go by the theoretical specification. It's not recommended to lower the crossover from what was measured. There will be no Audyssey correction applied to frequencies below the roll off point that was found. Content below 150 Hz will be sent to the subwoofer where it will be corrected by the higher resolution MultEQ filters in that channel.
