The only way to overcome these are to either move the speaker placement or modify the room. You mentioned a 100Hz hole which you couldn't EQ out which would be due to a room / speaker placement issue. http://peavey.com/support/technotes/...ncellation.cfm
I have had my T12s for a couple years now and recently EQ'd them which made the mid-bass and even bass from them really stand out. The bass was enough to where I thought the subs kicked on in addition to the L / R speakers.
Added in Edit: You mentioned that the speakers had the same FR in two rooms. If this is the case I would say possibly a faulty speaker. One sure fire way to test, but a pain, would be to test the FR out in an open field.
Can you upload your FR response? Would love to see before and after
If I am reading these charts and the room has an impact on mid bass....how can adding a MBM help?[/QUOTE]
Different driver location can not have a dip at that FR. Why most say subs usually don't measure best where main speakers are. But each room is different.

My subs are sealed with dual opposing drives so they don't vibrate at all. I just use small stick on felt pads to reduce any marking on the finish. If you have single driver subs they probably really shake at times.
I have Triple 8's LP's on top of my two submersives flanked at the LR positions. Felt pads is all and they never move an inch

You should see if there is anybody near by that would be willing to give you a demo.
Papalock, don't you have a youtube vid of your epic bose subwoofer moving air?
