A few questions to the experts here:
I have been following this thread with great interest, as I am certain I am an example of the "average guy" trying to optimize his HT system.
Q1) If all speakers should be set to "small", then in theory why would you need speakers with drivers larger than say 6"?
This information seems to point to the breakpoints in audio formats/speaker evolution. In the "stereo" days, the speakers handled all of the bass, and hence "larger" was better. But in SS modes, there seems to be no good reason for larger speakers.....
Q2) What happens in the AVR when you switch to "stereo mode"; do the speaker size settings still apply?
I ask this because I think many people get confused about speaker setting sizes when they switch back and forth between SP modes. To be honest, I am not sure what happens when I switch from say DD to stereo.
Thanks to all for the great educational information in this post.
Sometimes I have to remind myself that I bought all this "stuff" to enjoy it!
