    I'm obviously new at all this, but if I prefer strong bass and midranges, what is the low end frequency that I need to be looking for on front and surround speakers? I thought the lower the better to increase the mids, but then I read that you will be cutting them off with the sub...can you run the fronts at full range and the sub and still have 5.1 surround? Need some help!!!

    IMO, the least a main speaker should put out is about 60Hz, which will work well with most reciever's crossovers and will allow them to blend well with any sub.

    Yes, on nearly all current receivers, you can set the mains to large and still use the sub and surround. Setting them to large does not have anything to do with getting surround.
