Hey guys,

I am about to re-EQ my entire system and am looking for some feedback on how I am currently handling my setup. I have 2 DTS-10 subs on my back wall behind my listening position that are running through a BFD to my Denon 4311CI through sub output1. I am applying manual filters to the subs via the BFD and then I typically run the regular Audyssey setup.

I recently built 2 18" subs tuned to 40hz to act as MBM's up to 80hz that are near-field in front of my listening position. I have these running through a miniDSP to an antimode to my receiver in sub output2. What I have been doing is eqing the DTS-10's seperately then applying the antimode setup to the MBMs, and tweaking all 4 subs using the miniDSP for delay, phase issues, etc.

Would this be the most optimal way or is there any way I can just EQ all these using the miniDSP and the Denon (Audyssey.) What I was thinking a possibility would be to run all 4 subs through the miniDSP to the Denon, remove the BFD, set the HPF and LPF to the subs, and have Audyssey attempt to make all four play nice. The issue I am seeing is the MBM's only go down to 40hz where as the DTS-10's can easily go to 15hz in my room so I wasn't sure if Audyssey would notice the limitation by the MBM's and not create filters for the DTS-10's.

Any advice is appreciated.

What do you use to measure ? Are you getting nulls at your seating position ? Can we get a lay out of your room ?

I am a born again multiple sub user LOL, this is right up my alley. looking forward to many of these same issues.
