    This is a repost which i also have in the receiver section. I wasn't sure where it belonged.
    I have a Yamaha RX V3000 receiver. Definitive Technology BP 2004 TL main speakers. These speakers have built in powered subwoofers. Def Tech C/L/R 2002 center speaker. The 2004 speakers are hooked up using speaker level and line level (LFE using Y adapter going into each main)
    Ok now for the confusion: How should the speaker setting be set?
    Mains- LARGE or SMALL
    Subwoofer- SUB or MAIN or BOTH

    I don't really understand what the BOTH setting does but its there. I have asked these questions in other forums but I never got a clear answer. Maybe someone out there has these same speakers with a Yamaha receiver and they could give there settings.
    Also the Def Techs are rated at 4-8 ohms, the manual says to use the 4 ohm setting. The confusion here is that some people tell me to use 4 others say to use 8. Does anyone know for sure which is better.

    I am no expert, but I would run mains set to small, LFE set to sub, my rx-v1 also has the both setting, it blends the low range to the sub and the mains, but your speakers have a powered 10"sub with 2- 5.25 drivers and 2- 1"tweeters, I just think you need to let the 5.25" speakers play from 90hz and up{the crossover level on the Yamaha}good luck
