Sorry, no, not too mention as the SR5007 has since been replaced by 2 newer (3 newer with the 2015 model), will not likely be receiving anymore firmware updates.

So then you apparently already set them to SMALL. Raise the crossover to 80Hz as well. Manual Setup settings are the current "active" settings.
