5.1 Speakers with Stereo Source
I'm currently in the process of planning a 5.1 system around a Yamaha RX-V673.
What happens to the bass when one watches stereo PCM with the above system? Will the '.1' sub be ignored or can the system be configured to act like a 2.1 system?
I've heard systems in the past that just route audio to the front left and front right speakers. The speakers I'm planning on buying are tiny and would certianly need the sub at all times, not just during surround content.
Sorry if this is a silly question!
