    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".
