    I am unclear on 1 issue. If I set my speakers to the "small" setting on the reciever will the bass ( 80hz and below) only go to the sub. The reciever has a built in 80hz crossover. I am using a svs 20-39pci sub. For the fronts I am using paradigms Monitor 11's.

    Correct me if i'm wrong the monitor 11's Crossover information reads:
    3rd order electro - acoustic at 2.0kHz
    2nd order electro - acoustic at 600Hz (lower bass drivers)
    So the frequiencies to the tweeter are 2.0kHZ -20kHz
    So the frequiencies to the midrange are 600hz to 2.0khz
    So the frequiencies to the bass drivers are 48hz - 600hz

    So if I set my speakers to "small" it would read:

    So the frequiencies to the tweeter are 2.0kHZ - 20kHz
    So the frequiencies to the midrange are 600hz to 2.0khz
    So the frequiencies to the bass drivers are 80hz - 600hz
    So the frequiencies to the subwoofer is 40hz - 80hz
    Is this correct? I am new to all this and would like some help.
