I'll probably be going with the Ultra, so there will be some additional complications from me not having matching the subs. SVS has told me the plus and Ultra will play nicely together so I trust them.

Just figure that if I go with an Ultra I'll be out almost $3000 in subs, I don't want to skimp on the last $100.

There is a guide on the mini dsp site that explains how to use REW with a Mac. I use a Mac mini with HDMI.
It took a little bit of time to set up, and a couple of set up steps each time you start measuring, but it works well.

You'll need something to measure your setup with....like REQ. Once you do this you can see if there is any large resonances that need to be tamed. I used the two PEQ's in tandem to flatten out a wide point of emphasis in my room. It doesn't need to be perfect...just help perfect it for Audyssey. The problem with mine I believe is that audyssey saw the drop off for this wide resonance as the actual drop off point in the sub and gave up anything below that. Once I flattened it out the results were startling when followed up with audyssey.

I have REW and measurement gear (though I haven't had much of a chance to play around with it), so I do plan on taking some measurements. All things considered, these subs have pretty decent PEQ's, so I would love to try to get things working between the two instead of buying more gear.

Thanks for tip. I also have Mac mini with HDMi so as Macbook. I will check it out and maybe will get back to you with some questions if I can, thanks again.

REW will not fix Your issue but it will help you in finding the problem areas in the frequency response and Yu can make adjustments manually and REW will let you know the results.
