8. Calibration > 67. Set Your Speakers to “Small” in Your Receiver Setup

Set Your Speakers to “Small” in Your Receiver Setup

Avoid setting your speakers, even if they are towers, to the “large” setting in your receiver’s setup menus.

Receivers and preamp/processors typically have two settings for your speakers: “small” and “large.” You need to get past what these words actually mean in English, as they are a very poor choice for this feature of a processor. This setting actually has nothing to do with the size of the speakers, and everything to do with the range of the speakers. This setting determines when low frequencies are diverted from your front speakers and into your subwoofer (the crossover frequency). In other words, it has a tremendous effect on the bass you’ll hear in movie soundtracks.
