Sidechain High Pass Frequencies

Just wanted to start a thread to get a survey of what all you slutz are typically using as sidechaining frequencies.
Say you were to have a bus compressor on drums or an entire mix and sidechain in a high pass filter to really make it punch, what would you use as the cutoff frequency? If you could only have one, what would it be?

so no one sidechains?

i usually have a C2 on the mix bus, and i feel the sidechain is a must.

i use a parametric EQ that gets adjusted per song. but if i had to choose just one freq as a HP i think it would be 120Hz

sometimes i use the Portico 5043 on the mix bus, no sidechain.
