Your menu is obviously different than mine so I got curious and pulled yours. The menus are obviously different but the functionality is pretty much the same. On page 130 of your manual it does state: “When “Subwoofer” is set to “No”, “Front” is automatically set to “Large”.”
For the center speaker you get the following options:
“Center : Set the presence and size of the center speaker.
• Large : Use a large speaker that can adequately play back low frequencies.
• Small : Use a small speaker that has inadequate playback capacity for low frequencies.
• None : Select when a center speaker is not connected.
“Large” is not displayed when “Front” is set to “Small”.
Now, in my opinion
, given that you are running a 3.0 set up, I would set the front speakers to “large” (well you don’t have a choice) and sent the center speaker to whatever Audyssey thinks it should be set. I would also go a step further and maybe bump the center speaker cross over frequency +10hrz or so to alleviate it from having to play the lower frequencies (the latter is more a personal choice and what sounds better to you).
As far as the “LFE” setting, I agree with the previous post based on the research I’ve done lately: leave that at 120 and never move it. In your case, w/o a subwoofer it is not going to make a difference, but once you get a subwoofer, it will. Your settings for the LFE are on page 131.
Your subwoofer options are slightly different than mine as it allows you additional flexibility that I do not have (but you probably don’t need):
Subwoofer Mode : Select low range signals to be reproduced by
• LFE : The low range signal of the channel set to “Small” speaker size is added to the LFE signal output from the subwoofer.
• LFE+Main : The low range signal of all channels is added to the LFE signal output from the subwoofer.
The reality is once you get a subwoofer, you will want to set your fronts to “small” which will automatically engage your subwoofer.
