What it really means is this:
large = no subwoofer (therefore no bass management)
small = subwoofer in use (therefore bass management is applied)
And without Audyssey, you would never have discovered that one of your speaker channels is not functioning normally.
BTW RickPas, one last thing to try:
Now that you've determined that one of the channels (note: I didn't say speakers) is not functioning normally (I can't tell which because first, you say there's bass coming out the left front, then you say maybe the left is malfunctioning. I think you meant to say Right front at some point, so I can't tell which is working), try this;
Set the dial on both speakers to 3 o'clock. Set the speakers to Large, subwoofer to None. Play music with strong bass. If one speaker is putting out bass and the other isn't, connect the avr's Left Front output to the Right front speaker and vice versa.
If the same side's bass stays dead, it's the speaker, if it swaps when you change the connections, it's the avr output. If it's the speaker, swap the fuses between the 2 speakers. If the no-bass speaker is still the same side, call GE about the warranty.
