At the title states.
One other side note...He's got some old (old) Klipsch speakers as mains, but they have it seems at least 12" maybe 15" rear firing drivers in each speaker cabinet. Could it be that the stone age reciever hes using has the speakers defaulting to small, as their is little to no action these huge woofers are seeing.
First...those rear firing drivers are probably passive radiators...they are not powered and Klipsch used them a lot in their speakers. The Klipschs that I knew with those passive radiators had pretty good bass.
If the receiver is stone aged, then I doubt there is any kind of bass management on it...no small or large setting for the speakers. Maybe the speakers are old and tired(doubt it), or the receiver is not driving them correctly. I have a 15 year old pair of Klipsch, they still sound good.
