Yes, I had Infinity Overture ll"s. I had them set to small for movie watching and large for music. But that's just me. Set to large they were way too boomy for HT use which was a problem with the room and where I had to have them located. Which is the beauty of a dedicated subwoofer, the ability to move it to the best position within a room. Your room and your experience may be different. Only way to tell is for you to experiment. Try them both ways and leave them the way they sound the best for you. You should be able to find a manual online somewhere. Don't overanalyze, just experiment. That's half the fun of this hobby anyhow, yes? Regarding speakers, there is no right and wrong. Move them around, set them up differently, try different crossover ranges, when you get them to where you are happy, there you are! Time to add something else new and begin the process again.
