In general you if you have a sub you want to set the speakers to small regardless


In a 5.1 set up regardless of the physical size of the speakers they should always be set to small with a prospective crossover of 80hz. Below is a link to a very good thread on the subject, you only need to read the first reply.

it depends if you have the sub on or off

if you dont use a sub for stereo then for normal.2 channel stereo you should set them full range/large

its best to experiment with and without a sub for music
