    Here's my setup:

    Mains: DefTech BP2000

    Center: DefTech CLR2002

    Surround: DefTech BP2X

    Receiver: Low-end Pioneer 557 (will be replaced very soon by the H/K AVR-520).

    I know there is a lot of debate about setting the mains to "small" or "large." I don't have an external sub and really don't think I need one--the BP2000's are more than enough when set to "large".

    My question is about the connection to my receiver. Any recommendations on whether to just connect the speakers normally or use the sub out? I'm trying to get everything set up right and I'm probably not even using the right terminology. These speakers are great, but I don't feel like I'm taking advantage of them. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I would use the speaker connections, and set the receiver to no sub, L&R to large to handle the bass. This will give you the true L&R full range signals to those speakers , the LFE will be split between the two.
