    Hi all, a frequently asked question I know but I was wondering should I change the settings on my Yamaha A2 now I have different speakers.

    speakers are:

    Fr. B&W 603 S3
    Ctr. B&w LCR600 S3
    R. B&W 602.5 S3
    S. AE Aegis

    I have all set to small and LFE to Sub this was how my old Missions sounded the best, but the B&W's are a lot bigger.

    Thanks


    Taz.:cool:

    We all always seem to disagree on this one but personally I would set them all to large as they are full range speakers and handle bass well. That way the sub will handle the LFE only but as always experimentation is the key.

    Agree. No general rule here, depends on the combination AV amp/receiver and speakers. Try it out and see what suits best.

    Taz,

    I always found with my A2 that setting to small and LFe to both was preferable.

    Main speakers SMALL and LFE both? That will not be possible: if BOTH is set the main speakers must be LARGE and if I am not mistaken the amp will override this setting, says the manual to the A1 at least.
