Subwoofer – LFE signals and bass frequencies of
channels set to SMALL are output from the subwoofer
when YES is selected (see notes below). Choose the PLUS
setting if you want the subwoofer to output bass sound
continuously or you want deeper bass (the bass
frequencies that would normally come out the front and
center speakers are also routed to the subwoofer). If you did
not connect a subwoofer choose NO (the bass frequencies
are output from other speakers).

When you're finished, press RETURN.
You return to the Manual SP Setup menu.
Note
If you select SMALL for the front speakers, the subwoofer
will automatically be fixed to YES. Also, the center,
surround can't be set to LARGE if the front speakers are set
to SMALL. In this case, all bass frequencies are sent to the
subwoofer.
If you have a subwoofer and like lots of bass, it may seem
logical to select LARGE for your front speakers and PLUS
for the subwoofer. This may not, however, yield the best
bass results. Depending on the speaker placement of your
room you may actually experience a decrease in the
amount of bass due to low frequency cancellations. In this
case, try changing the position or direction of speakers. If
you can't get good results, listen to the bass response with
it set to PLUS and YES or the front speakers set to LARGE
and SMALL alternatively and let your ears judge which
sounds best. If you're having problems, the easiest option
is to route all the bass sounds to the subwoofer by selecting
SMALL for the front speakers.

X.Over

Default setting: 100Hz
This setting decides the cutoff between bass sounds playing
back from the speakers selected as LARGE, or the subwoofer,
and bass sounds playing back from those selected as SMALL.
It also decides where the cutoff will be for bass sounds in the
LFE channel.
