    Also, I understand that if I set all speakers to small will all

    Dave, you're not really confused, you just don't have a SUB!
    Speaking for my Yamaha AVR, yes the SUB OUT sends all bass in two-channel to the sub so long as all Speakers are set to SMALL and you tell the receiver to send bass to SUB (rather than MAINS or BOTH).
    There are two parts to bass management. The above handles all the low frequencies

    Thanks. I think I understand it now... I, ironically, also have a Yamaha receiver.
