I have seen several ref sysops recommend the following:

Min Send: 1
Max Send: 14
Min Rcv: 1
Max Rcv: 28

Sometimes you can get better receive throughput by keeping the number of
video windows open down to 2 or 3. Throughput also seems better on refs
where lurkers are not allowed & when people don't screw around trying to send
audio. Of course, you're always at the mercy of whatever bandwidth is
available to the reflector. Try the White Pine self-reflect for determining
the best you can expect.
