We really need more information to answer that. For example, what is the slope of the rolloff for the sub, what is the low frequency extension the main speakers you are using, and what is the rolloff for the main speakers. Subject to that information however, unless you are using a tiny little pair of bookshelfs, cutting the sub off at 80hz is probably fine. In fact, it may even be too high. Generally speaking, 80-160hz is the octave considered to be "upper bass". Any speaker beyond little computer speakers should be producing something in that region. The sub should be operating below that.
