I have RT1000i's for mains, CS245i for center, and fx300i's for surrounds (no stand-alone sub). Right now, the mains are set to "large" and the center to "small" --- which should be a given. For the surrounds, the manual recommends setting them to "small."
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it recommended not to send all the bass to the subwoofer because it loads it down, or something? If this is true, isn't that what the recommended configuration would be doing? Since all the speakers but the mains would be set to "small" (and the subwoofer set to "off"), then the mains would get all the bass, correct? Then, since the mains have the built-in subwoofer, doesn't this subwoofer get most of the bass? Since the subwoofers are small, is this recommended?
I'm pretty new at this home theater stuff, so I could be way off-base on this. Would it be bad to set the surrounds to large?
