Dan, first thanks for your time and fantastic work & explanation. To be honest, I am a little intimidated to ask questions in this thread and hope they are not too basic, or have been discussed already:
1. So far I've learned that it's better to have 3 subwoofs than 2 for example, and it's ok to mix subwoofers even from different designs/brands, is that correct?
I have 2 Apogee Diva subwoofers (from my days with Apogee Diva Grand) and a REL subwoofer, for my Magnaplanar 3.5. So far I've only used the Apogee subwoof, but am thinking to add the REL after what I've been reading here.
2. The correction of the bass range below 200-300: Is this correction done using subwoofer output only, or is it some composite thing using all the speakers in the system?
In other words, my main speakers are (near) full range Thiel CS5i - does a system like Dirac (or Trinnov, etc.) correct the bass range by changing main L&R bass also, or does it just do it through the subwoof channel?
3. My system is 7.1, with only one channel for bass. Is it "better" or necessary once I have Dirac added to add more bass channels? In other words, is it better, for Dirac correction, to have one bass channel for each of my subwoof, or it's ok to y-split the single bass channel to my 3 subwoofs? TIA.
PS You told me "not to go audiophile" on you (chuckle), but the more I read your posts, the more I think you have the same blood lurking under.
