    Just curious. I have a Kenwood HTB-505 setup. Modest, but nice. It is the one with dual 4" in the mains with a tweeter MTM design. If I were to replace these with a dual 6.5 vifa Fiberglass and tweeter speakers DIY, would I want to set these speakers to large? Considering I have a 8" powered sub that came with the setup. I would really like to get a bigger extension on bass from my fronts as I think the dual 4"'s drop out a bit too early for the sub to pick up.

    Basically, If I set them to small will I still get some bass out of them as they are pretty capable drivers? The dual 4" would probably be moved to be used in place of the single 4" surrounds that came with the setup

    The 6.5 might have better bass extension even if they are still set to small.

    There's very long threads on here about some people who will never set their speakers to large, even if they have 12" woofers in their mains.
