Are you using a minidsp? Do you have measurement gear? Do your subs match?
It's kinda up to you. Do you want to set distance/delay on the AVR or minidsp. How do you want to fine tune the trims?
-Gain match my subs if they match
-Determine best location for subs based off a raw(no audyssey no minidsp) FR plots trial and error from available locations
-hook in the minidsp as a passthough doing nothing, continue to use the 2 subs outs from the SubEQHT AVR
- Run audyssey to get the distance and level really close, look at the FR graphs
- See if you can improve the transition area by tweaking delay on the minidsp
- Save best graph so far
- Turn audyssey off, Make FR plot as good as possible with minidsp. Try their auto correction, try a bunch of stuff, hopefully educated trial and error and a bunch of research on good vs bad EQ techniques. Too many filters bad, less is more, boosting bad for head room is a myth, cutting has the same impact. Don't make big boosts. You can't boost your way out of a true null
-Save best plot like that
-measure, is this the best yet?
-enjoy, think about what can be better based on what you learned, tweak when you have time if you enjoy that sort of thing.
I have seen folks not use the SubEQHT once they have measurement gear and a minidsp like gadget. If you use one sub out you get the distance on the AVR right for the furthest sub and add delay via minidsp to the closer sub to optimize the FR of the transition region.
