    I have a pair of Mission M74i, a M3c2 as centre, and a pair of M3ds as surrounds hooked up to a Pioneer VSX D712. How should I set the speakers to .. Large or small ?

    I would suggest setting the main speakers to large and the centre and surrounds to small.

    You may wish to change the main speakers to small if and when you buy a subwoofer but the above will be the optimum for the moment.

    I would suggest to always set speakers that can handle bass to LARGE, because I found that sounds more natural.
    Remember, upper bass tends to be directional to some degree!
    Just my 2 cents!

    I disagree as I feel that 15 minutes experimentation works wonders. Some subwoofers can handle upper bass better than some speakers and it can also make integration of mains and sub easier.
