When the bass is cut from a channel, the bass
redirection circuitry sends the corresponding bass
frequencies to the subwoofer or other "LARGE"
However, since bass sound has a certain amount of
directionality, it is best not to cut it, if possible.
Therefore, even when using small speakers, you
can set them to "LARGE" if you want to output the
bass frequencies from that speaker. On the other

If the overall sound level is lower than you prefer,
set all speakers to "LARGE". If there is not enough

• If you do not use the subwoofer, the front speakers
are automatically set to "LARGE".
