Proac 100 and sub crossover settings?

Hi folks! I have my dear proac's w a new bryston system and a regular sub. Low pass filter on the sub starts at 80, but the lowest the proac go are 40. I know there's a fancy formula to figure out crossover but it does not seem to apply to this situation. Any leads on what to set it the sub at?

Things are sounding ok right now but i feel im getting some slight crossover not super happy frequencies.

Thanks!

Since then he has turned to Audio Vero's Acourate to do the mains-subs integration
I have done so to with stunning results

well...

subs (in a studio) are about two things: to extend fr but also to even out room modes.

if you have a single sub, put it in a front corner (for optimum loading) for a start - if you can't make sure you put it sideways so to woofer gets as close as possible to the front wall (for too many reasons to mention).

of course measuring will tell you where you can get the best results! for optimum results, imo dsp is pretty much mandatory but there is no single trick (setting) which does it all: could well be that you'll want to change x-over settings depending on positioning...

maybe better to post in the acoustics/studio building forum and provide measurements...
