    My front and center speakers each have a frequency response of 38Hz - 20kHz and have 6" woofers: would it be best to set them to "small" or "large" on my receiver as I also have a subwoofer. When I set them to large they sound better but I don't appear to get much out of my sub

    That is pretty decent extension, but they should be set to small with either an 80 or 60Hz x-over (depending on your other speakers). When you set them to large, that bass is no longer sent to the sub.

    Thanks for your advice, my next step will be to get a better sub!
