Subwoofer only works with speakers set to 'small'
Please forgive my lack of knowledge in advance. I'm a 'geek' but only just entering the world of audio.
I then got lucky and found a Tannoy FX 5.1 subwoofer for sale about 3 streets away from my house so snapped it up for £20.
I've plugged it in using an RCA cable from my amp's subwoofer socket to the right input on the 'low level' part of the sub.
I then turn 'Subwoofer > Yes' on the amp's settings but the sub doesn't kick in.
However, when I turn the speakers from 'Large' to 'Small' in the settings the bass disappears entirely from the speakers and the sub kicks in.
Whilst I am assuming this is relatively normal I was wondering if it's possible to maintain the bass portion of the speakers as well as the sub. It seemed to me that 'sub > yes' should kick it in irrelevant of whether the speakers are set to large/small.
Many thanks in advance.
