They're nothing at all like the Behringer FBD.
Check out this
overview page, then check out this
link detailing each model of interest. On the second link you can download and explore the GUI. As far as user interfaces go, the Gui is simply wonderful. You can download it and mess around and clearly see how a unified approach these Navigators are.
I searched around for a method to properly blend and optimize my multi-sub, system re-tool that I'm in th middle of currently. I'm blending three current subs (a quad 18 IB, two dual opposed 15s) and I'll very likely add a tactile transducer totalling four outputs for now. Depending on the finalized response, it's possible I may need more sources for additional smoothing (not for added output
) I haven't purchased mine yet, as I just this past week got my subs and mains up and running using my current signal processing tools.
If you're not interested in running your mains through the processor, then the smaller 240, or 360 may be well suited for your needs. I've not examined the smaller models that close, but as far as I know they'd serve the purpose quite well. You can have global EQ on the input side, individual manipulation in the time and frequency domain on each output, and with the right measurment tools, you should be able to get a nice, workable end product.Here's
a Nav360. I don't know anything about pricing. I'd think the 240 would suit you also, but again i've not really examined the low I/O count processors offered.
Also, there's a vast assortment of processors like this Navigator line. MiniDSP kinda being the new kid on the block, really somewhat geared toward the diy crowd. I've not explored the gui of miniDSP, it may be just fine. It does have parametric/shelving down to 10hz, IIRC. That may, or may not be of use. The Fi drivers can use a bit of "LT" boost down in that range.
Dennis and SMB offer up some good advice, I do not want to muddy up the waters.
What mains loudspeakers will you be utilizing?
Best of luck
