Default figure out reference tension

How can I tell how much more tension I'll get if I string the mains and crosses different?

I know if I string @ 50lbs crosses and mains, reference tension is more or less 50 lbs.

If I string crosses @ 48lbs and mains @ 50lbs, then the reference tension goes down, right? If I string crosses @ 52lbs, tension goes up? but buy how much?

What I mean is, if I want a reference tension of 52 lbs, but want to string mains and crosses different tensions (crosses tighter), what combination will get me 52 lbs?

I know i can't string the mains at 52, they must be lower than that, since a tighter cross pattern will up the tension. Would 50/52 get it? 48/52?
