What do these knobs in Premiere do?

I am trying to understand what these knobs do in a Premiere CS5 5.1 mix (See picture in link). What are these knobs called? When I turn the bottom one to the right, I seem to get sound transfered to track 6. I just don't know what it is doing when transfering the sound? Is it adding bass to the LFE and reducing it in the channel with the knob? Is it just sending the bass to LFE? What is this knob doing? As for the other knob on top, I understand it sends the signal to center channel but since the signal has already been assigned to the center channel, I just don't know what the knob is for. Helllllpppp!!! Or where can I find information on these knobs with no names.

top--divergence (the figure to the right of the knobs is the visual representation of a surround panner), bottom, sending that sound to the LFE (usually stem #6)

What do you mean by "sending the signal"? Is it transfering the Bass only or is it copying the bass or is it transfering everything?

if it's like Pro Tools, "sending the signal" would mean copying it. The signal would still go to the mains with no attenuation.

But sending it to the LFE would mean adding bass to the movie, would it not?

Ah no, at least not in the sense you mean, I think. Sending to the LFE will send signal to channel 6, the bass must be there in the first place. Sending a sound effect to the LFE does not make it "bassier" than it was to start with, it just takes a sound that's already bassy and plays it through a speaker that features that aspect of it.

If you don't have an LFE speaker, the LFE knob should do nothing.

Effectively, yes. You can choose what sounds you send to the lfe. The knob allows you to control how much. It won't effect the direct output of the track you are controlling. Most top productions create content specifically for the lfe, and the piece should work well with out the lfe present. Think of it as the cherry on top.

But as iluvcapra says, you need to have a full 5.1 setup for this to make a difference.
