Audyssey and built in roll-offs in 5.1

Greetings, new poster here

I have a livingroom 5.1 home theater setup with 8030 as l/r and 8020 for center (can't fit a 8030 in my current cabinet) and rears plus a 7050B sub. Room is far from dedicated and optimized aswell. I'm about to install a new AVR, a Denon x4300 with the supposedly pretty decent Audyssey multeq xt32 room correction. If I had a proper room and say 8030 x5 plus 7060b I'd use the hardware roll-offs as they probably work better in a controlled environment. But now in with mismatch set and nontreated room.. My question then: should I let the room correction software handle the satellite-sub roll-off frequency calibrations or use the switches in the speakers and set the speakers Large in the software?

Greetings and welcome!

You can let Audyssey do the room calibration. 7050B doesn't have crossover filters, so you have to switch bass roll-off DIP-switches ON from the 8020 and 8030's manually. If you are not satisfied with the result with Audyssey, you can always use the DIP switches for the room calibration manually. I recommend to connect speakers via the subwoofer (FR,FL,RR,RL,C and LFE). Then you need to set speakers as "large". This the the method Genelec recommends.
