Reid and Phil,
"Large" is a speaker that will go down to 20hz. This is pretty rare. While the 703s have nice bass, you should still set them to small if you have a decent sub. They don't go down to 20hz.
BTW, Audessey's Large/Small choice isn't very accurate.
But hey, it only takes a few reconfigure things and give it a listen. My dealer runs everything as Large, and I have to admit it sound nice when I go in there. Dealers tend to do run them as large simply because resetting the crossover for each speaker demo would get pretty time consuming.
My recommnedations are purely "conventional wisdom", which is a good starting point. Play around, and let your ears decide.
