This will most likely sound like a dumb question, but what does setting all the speakers to small do? Are their benefits in this as far as the sound?

Setting a speaker set to small causes all the frequencies below the crossover setting to be routed to the subwoofer instead of to those speakers.

While in a perfect world (with enough time) you might be able to get better sound by leaving the speakers set to Large (all frequencies go to the speakers) and getting the subwoofer crossover set just right, you can get at least 95% of the way there by setting everything to Small and everything is guaranteed to work.

Setting speakers to Large is mostly done either because you are listening to music rather than movies, or because your room has really wierd LF responses and the benefits of having bass come from multiple sources (subwoofer and mains) outweigh the problems.

I just got a 3805 myself and haven't been able to find an answer to this... If the speakers are set to small, does that setting remain in effect when in, for instance, pure direct mode when listening to music?

Thx

Spoiler, I do not have a Denon receiver, but I do own a 2900 player. It also has a Pure Direct Mode, and when it is on it sends full range signal to speakers--no sub. The speaker setting should automatically switch to "large."

With my 4802r, the manual says that the surround settings set in direct mode will be the settings used in pure direct.

It also goes on to say that " the crossover frequency setting must be set to 'fixed thx' in the system setup in order to turn off the digital circiut when in the analog input mode in the 'PURE DIRECT" mode".

Fixed thx sets the crossover to 80hz

clear as mud?

I can't find anything that shows the speakers will revert to large. Since it shuts down all circuitry theres no way to check the settings. But if I go from pure direct to direct my speakers remain on small.

I suppose my question really is.. does the speaker config setting affect the 2 channel modes (Stereo,direct,pure direct), so that even though the speaker setting may remain on small when in stereo mode, the signal may still be full range to the fronts?

Hoping to avoid having to set them to large every time I switch from movies to music!

Stereo and Direct can be set up and saved individually from the 5.1 (DDpl2, DTS,THX) the only two surround settings tied together on my 4802r is Direct and Pure Direct everything else has its own settings. I would assume the 3805 is the same......
