If you use an external amp I think it should work since the eq goes between the R 972 and the amp. However, not sure how Trinnov eq will react to the speakers when measuring since it sometimes has trouble with panels. Even though the 901s are not panels, their soundwave distribution pattern might not be ideal for the Trinnov system (at least as implemented in the R 972). One last comment, I'm not sure of the value of Trinnov if you are pursuing such a compromised speaker design since, if I understand it correctly, the eq might "waste" headroom trying to correct the flaws in the frequency response of the 901's which in turn may affect how the R 972 performs reproducing dynamics in music and movies.
Dunning–Kruger effect - a cognitive bias where individuals exhibiting poor ability suffer from an illusion of superiority, due to their mistaken assessment of their cognitive ability. That is, a high level of incompetence prevents such individuals from cognitively recognizing their own ineptitude. Yeah, I know...the irony.
