Separate Subwoofers generally have built in high power amplifiers because bass needs a lot of power. A subwoofer is also placement critical. Generally where you place your main left and right speakers will not be the best location for awesome bass response.
I used to own similar Def Tech towers, and after trying all of the different methods for connecting, I ended up doing the simple speaker wire only connection. Using a separate Subwoofer, placed properly for impact, I set the receiver to “small” and used an 80 Hz crossover setting. (deep bass from 80Hz down will be the Subwoofer’s job, and everything above 80Hz goes to the other speakers.)
Do you grasp the “room correction” features on the receiver? Any changes that you make to the system requires a fresh room correction to be executed.
If you’re not using a separate Subwoofer, and wish to use the built in “ Powered Woofers” then you can try the LFE input (RCA). Use “Large” setting for the main left and right speakers, small for the others. Your mains will get a full signal.
I hope you are going to be using a separate Subwoofer, as the large speakers are “Powered Woofers” with a volume control, and no other adjustments.
