I just received my two B1's for the front left and right, and my C1 for the center. I am running .5's for the rear surround and I have a Dayton 10" sub. I have the panny xr55.
I have been listening to some music with all the speakers set to large and the sub turned off. It sounds awesome!! I thought I would just listen to it like this for about 50 hours or so so they will all break in.
My question to everyone is below...
1. Why shouldn't I just leave my front left and right B1's and my C1 set to large BUT turn the sub on. I have the crossover set to 100 on the receiver and the subs crossover is turned all the way up (disabling it).
I originally had the .5's as my front left and right and the C.5 as my center. I had these set to small and the sub set up as above. It sounded good, but I just wanted to be able to turn it up more and listen to it more loudly, so I got the B1's and the C1.
I guess I just think the B1's and the C1 sound so great even without the sub, then why would I want to eliminate the B1's and the C1's ability to put out some bass and set them to small??
I guess after the rambling above, my question is WHY do you all set your B1's to small when you have a subwoofer? Have you tried setting them to large along with your sub?? Did it sound worse??
