Yeah have kinda been learning that, the thing for me was that when I had them set to large the sounded different than when on small and that was do the fact I didn't really know about crossover settings.
But now I understand that to get my sub to work with my fronts when listening to 2 channel mode for music that I need them set to small, but just wasn't ever sure about the what crossover settings to put it on.

If I do decide to order Axiom, which will be this week, I will be become a nuisance on here with even more questions!!

jason, I hear you. I have found some tracks on youtube, if you search for subwoofer tests, there are lots of low frequency stuff that will really test the sub.

As a nuisance owner of M80's - let the questions begin. The more I play with the settings on my AVR, the more I love my M80's. For music, I now prefer to set them to "large" (a bit of an oxymoron - at least before the LFR1100's) because the bass is much more balanced than with a sub. But for movies - bring on the sub!

Just FYI Rusty,

My M80's are set to small with crossover @40hz. This is for movies and all channel music listening.

Lately I have just been listening to music in 2 channel mode pure audio (no sub, no audyssey) and the M80's produce nice clean, accurate bass.

I know this isn't "exactly" on topic, but i have my M60's set to large and full range.. when i listen to stereo, i usually use the stereo+subwoofer setting.... Don't see why the M80's wouldn't sound great as well?

I'll agree with Jakewash, the M80s will handle all but things like pipe organ or the lowest of double basoon notes.

I have flipped back and forth with all sorts of music and could not tell the difference between the M80 full range or the M80 crossed at 80Hz with a sub. It is only with my pipe organ disc that I noticed a difference.

Rusty, as Jason and Fred have pointed out, unless you're talking about a few primarily classical discs, particularly pipe organ, the bass on the music recordings that you'll be listening to isn't really "deep". Most music has little or nothing below about 40Hz. The M80s handle this with ease.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

It's usually advantagous to have separate sub(s) vs a tower with built-in's, this will give you the greatest flexibility with sub placement which would not be possible if they're part of your mains.

My Integra DTR 9.9 does not have large or small settings for the speakers. It just has many crossover settings to choose from. Paired with my EP500 sub I seem to prefer to set my crossovers on the M80's at around 45 HZ. This seems to give me the smoothest bass in my setting.

Not sure what music you guys are listening to, but I have the crossover set to 40 on my two channel set up. When I have it cranked, I can actually SEE the EP600's driver moving from across the room on many tracks. This is primarily when I am listening to Alternative Rock.
