when setting up your speakers small normal and large in my case its normal and large only...what size speakers = what ?? sats obvious small...and normal if its the only setting....what about bookshelf and the centre what is considered a large centre and how to tell....is it the size of speaker or a spec which would determine this ??

It's based on the speakers ability to produce bass.A larger speaker able to play down to say 40hz or in that area would be set to large or a small book shelf that does'nt have that ability would be set to small or normal.The bass would then be sent to a sub.Or you can set a larger speaker,more bass responsive,to the small or normal setting and route the bass signal to the sub.This is said to create a better sounding system as the amp is only called upon to drive the mids and highs.You would need a powered sub for the latter.So speaker specs more determine this.

That's probably why on Willow's receiver it's "Normal" instead of "Small". :D
