It is a perfect setup for another sub with also 50hz/24 LPF (such as our F12) when both accept the same input. This will simply any auto EQ.
There have been midbas products on the market. Our F8 is orginally designed as a wide-bandwidth subwoofer intended to use at higher crossover. Now we can use FM-8 as either a standalone subwoofer or as a midbass module.
Interesting concept of having the F8 as a mid bass module. So the thinking is to use satellite speakers for 200Hz and up to 20kHz, then use bass management within the pre/pro/AVR for below 200Hz? I.e. the satellite speaker are powered by the amp/AVR while the mid bass and sub are considered as active speakers.
Physical connection wise, it would be using RCA connections: LFE out of pre/pro/AVR ---> F8 ---> sub
Would like to know how to integrate the mid bass and subs.
How close does the F8 mid bass module need to be to the satellite speaker? How does one go about matching the levels and phase between the mid bass module and sub? Both at the same mid-point to start. How about phase, would it be set to zero initially?
Is 200Hz the top end that the F8 can reliably go up to and is the bottom end around 50Hz?
