Ah i understand.
In my case.. i usually do all speakers small (i have full range towers). So depending on how bass management is handled i "may" lose freq above the xover from lfe channel only.
For stereo mode i have option of sub+sat or large+sub or large.
I will have to give a read over my manual.
and the manual says:
Cross-over Freq.: This setting defines the frequency at which bass redirection begins.Frequencies below this level are redirected from ‘small’ speakers to the Fronts or to
the subwoofer; frequencies above this level are not redirected.
The value for this
setting depends on your speakers, environment and taste, and is best determined by
The adjustment can be made in increments of 10Hz between 40Hz and 130Hz.
So it kinda hints that lfe is NOT redirected to "large" speakers, so hence losing info above the xover.
So what brian initially said and what is recommended is to set l/r to large and everything else to small and use lfe. How would one know which method is being use for bass management for which manufacturer?
In a way it would be a hit n miss scheme no?
