I keep going back and forth on this, but for Most of you that have M60's or M800's and and EP500 or EP600, do you use your sub w/ 2channel Cd's? Do you run your mains large or small if you use the sub? Thanks for any input.

I use my EP500 and my speakers on small when listening to 2 channel, it would be a personal preference for what you like better, I don't like to keep adjusting things for different devices so I just keep everything set that way.

When I have time to play with the receiver I tend to listen to music without the sub, although I am doing that less and less over time.

I suspect that my idea of "sounding right" is evolving -- I listened to music for decades without a subwoofer, so anything a typical 10-inch woofer couldn't handle sounds strange and un-natural to me

The beauty of a really good sub is that it can be used for 2 channel listening. I have the M60's and a Hsu VTF-2. I always use the sub. Speakers set as 'small' and the cross-over is set to 80Hz for movies, and 60Hz for 2.1 music listening.

I have my M80s set to small and crossed at 40Hz and the 500 at 60Hz. Personal preference.

My 80's are set to large, and the sub is on. I tried it with the 80's set to small...but, I like them large, when listening to music...just sounds better to me...more 'full' per se.

Clearly after reading all of those responses, the only correct answer is "do whatever sounds best to you."

I run my M80s in a 2.1 set up with the Outlaw ICMB set to 60HZ. I've tried 40 and 80 but settled on 60HZ, it sounds the best to me.

I agree! Experiment. Somtimes I do and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I set the 80 to large. Sometimes the music dictate one way or the other.
