3805: how to set speakers to large for zone 2

I've got my 3805 working nicely, doing mainly 5.1 using 5x B&W M1 speakers plus a REL Quake subwoofer.

Zone 2 works too but there is almost no bass. It suspect the amp thinks the connected speakers are small ones, but they are not.

I know how to configure the speakers for the 5.1 but can't find out how/where to set the speaker size for zone 2.

Any hints?

Would setting the amp to 7.1 (i.e. no pwer amp to Zone 2) allow you to setr the rear back speakers to LArge? Then set it back to 5.1 and power amp to Zone 2?

Yep, that did the trick. Thanks a lot!!! :clap:

I tried just about anything but couldn't figure it out. Denon's documentation is lousy and the user interface of the 3805 isn't exactly perfect either.

In 7.1 you can choose small/large/none, but once you set anything other than "large" there, it's impossible to select "large" for Zone 2.
