Untill you have the subs, put the M60 as large and the others at small (bass will be sent to M60). Once you get the subs, set them all to small.

etap - as we conversed in PMs, I'm glad to see you posted the question publicly too.

You'll have to send us all pictures of your setup once you get it up and running. 2 600s ==> SCARY LOUD Bass!!!

Naw, only if he doesn't calibrate them properly, he will just get smoother bass and slightly more output.;\) I believe you can never have too much speaker or sub for a room.

I would say for starters to place the 600 opposite each other either on the center side walls or center front back walls. For starters I would set all speakers to small with a 80hz crossover, you can tweak later if needed. Calibrate all speakers/sub using Denon mic, and possibly follow up with an Radio Shack SPL meter to verify all are calibrated the same. Turn the crossover knob on the 600 to bypass or max setting.
