As to large and small speaker setting, my understanding, setting the speakers to large, allows bass to go to the speakers and the subwoofer channel. Dollar to doughnuts, your woofers are more cable then you subwoofer and when you have the speakers set to large, you get double bass through the speakers and the subwoofer.
Partially true. Sub + mains (set as Large) only play bass together if subwoofer mode is set to Double Bass (Onkyo) or LFE+main (Denon).
Anyway, subwoofer is all about moving lots and lots of air. The 10 inch woofers in your mains combined offer larger surface area compared to your 8" dedicated sub alone and can move comparatively more air. Hence the smoother bass when set as large till their -3dB point.
