    I posted this is the speaker area not knowing shere it shosuld go as well???

    In reading the manual for my dvd player, it states to set the speaker size to Large for speakers that can reproduce frequency signals below 120Hz.
    My center and rear speakers are the Boston cr6s and VR10 which have a range from 65-20,000Hz, so I assume the setting on the dvd player should be "large"?
    Reading aomething else in this forum, someone stated that 90% of the time the settigns for rears will be set to small.

    So, should I have the setting at small or large, and does this really matter?

    You don't mention if you have a subwoofer or not. If you do not have a subwoofer the front speaker settings on the receiver should be set to "large." The receiver will automatically decode the LFE frequencies to the front speakers. On my Samsung DVD HD841 I have the speakers set to small although I really don't know if that makes a difference or not; I haven't tested the settings on the player that much. It might be the receiver settings that take care of the LFE frequencies regardless of the settings on your player. When you set the settings of the front speakers to "Large" on your receiver, the receiver subwoofer setting is set to "no." In short, if you have a subwoofer, set the front speaker settings to "Small" if you do not have a subwoofer, set them to "Large."[​IMG]

    Why are you are having the DVD Player do the decoding? Is it for DVD-A/SACD or just DVD-V? Do you not have a Dolby Digital/DTS capable receiver?

    The reason I ask is because in many cases the receiver will give you more set-up flexibilty than the DVD player(more filter points, better filters, etc...)

    I have the Yamaha RX-V2090 which does not have an on board dolby digital decoder. It is DD ready and has 5 channel inputs. Thus I have the Toshiba 3109 which does the decoding and has 5.1 channel outputs.
    This was bought a little early in the game[​IMG]

    I have an Energy es10 sub.
