Hi All. After being on the fence for a couple months as to how to improve the bass response in my room, I just bought a 2nd SB13, and have questions on phase and PEQ.
My first SB13 is to the right of my left main speaker, sitting between the left main and my center speaker. I placed the second one across the room and to the right side of my couch ("nearfield," I guess). The second one is basically across the room from my right speaker. So the subs are across the room from one another, and diagonal from one another, with each facing away from its respective wall toward the opposite wall. I ran Audyssey MultEq XT32 with Sub EQ on my Denon 4520, and the subs both sound pretty good in the room. I would like to know if there's any benefit or need to change the phase of the 2nd sub to 180 degrees (or something else) given that it is facing in the opposite direction of the first. I spoke to SVS and they said Audyssey would handle any needed phase adjustments. My question is, is there any need to change phase on either sub before and/or after running Audyssey?
After running Audyssey, I also set the PEQ-1 to boost at 31 Hz by +2.0 db, with a Q of 4.8, just to get more from the lower end on music and movies. Will that cause any problems?
