I am a relative noob to this stuff so I hope someone can help me.


I recently bought a Yamaha RX-V563 receiver. The speakers I am using are:


Fronts: JBL 8" 3 way

center: JBL dual 6 1/4" 2 way

Surrounds and Rear surrounds: JBL 6 1/4

Subwoofer: JBL sub12 12" 250 watt


I set it all up and used the auto setup in the receiver. I have all the speaker sizes set to large.


1. Should the speakers listed above be set to large or small?


2. Depending on the answer to 1, should i output the low frequencies to both the fronts and the sub? or just the sub?


3. What should the crossover be set at on the sub? Should this setting match on the receiver menu?


4. How do i know whether to set the phase switch on the sub to 0 or 180 ? should this setting match in the receiver menu?


Thanks in advance for any help

1. I turn off the size calculation before running auto, and set mine to small

2. I send LFE/bass to the sub

3. I set the receivers crossover to 80hz usually; I turn up the crossover of the sub to the highest value - the receiver handles the crossover when you run a line input to it

4. Good question. Set the phase to 0, run the auto setup and if you have the time and patience, try flipping the phase on the sub to see what it sounds like
