Just installed it yesterday, so am reading through the manuals, but this behavior seems incorrect.
UPDATE - It seems as I cycled through the MCACC memory positions, an undefined one must be defaulted to my mains as Small, which I presume is why my subs kicked on, and I then presumed it was doing so with position 1, where the mains are set to large. When just using position 1, the subs do not kick in.
