This feature has had me wondering ever since I bought my Onkyo 602 back in February:


"With the Double Bass function, you can boost bass output by feeding bass sounds from the front left and right channels to the subwoofer." You can only do this if the mains are set to "Large".


How is this different from setting your fronts to Small, setting your crossover, and sending the LFE to the subwoofer?

It sends the bass to both the L/R speakers, AND the subwoofer, hence "double bass". When you select small, the bass no longer goes to the L/R speakers.

Depending on how well your receiver does bass management, it might be better or worse. Ideally, you shouldn't be able to tell when the bass goes from your speaker to subwoofer easily.
