I read an article (http://forum.ecoustics.com/bbs/messa...79/128214.html) where the author suggests to set full range tower speakers as "small" instead of "large" in your receiver, so that low frequencies are more appropriately taken care of by a dedicated sub woofer and supposedly increasing the mid range clarity of the main speakers. If one does not have or want to buy a subwoofer then it makes sense to buy tower speakers to at least get some decent bass response.
1. But if one already has a good sub woofer, then what is the advantage of the extra drivers in a tower speaker? (keeping aesthetics and personal preference aside).
2. If tower speakers with relatively good lower response are set as "small" in a receiver to cut off low frequencies, then what happens to the extra drivers? Are they still adding to the sound quality or do they not function at all?
Hope this doesn't sound stupid , but will appreciate your comments.
