I tried in the subwoofer section but didn't get much response so figured I would give it a shot here. AVR-3310CI, 2 crown amps, Behringer dual 31 band EQ, 2 18s and 2 15s. Trying to figure out the best way to set my system up properly. I have the sub output split and going to each channel of the behringer EQ. Each EQ output is split and goes to its own Crown amp which powers a pair of subs. I figure there is no way for Audyssey to properly handle this so what I've done so far is set up my DB meter, pick a target DB of 95, and play test tones while adjusting the EQ to archive as close to 95 at each frequency I can get. I did it once with just the 18s powered and once again with just the 15s powered. My plan is to now run Audyssey and see what it does but I am very open to suggestions or even a blatant "hey dumbass, do it like this". The system sounds great but I have the equipment so I figure I may as well make it as good as possible.

I'm running four budget subwoofers in my rather small HT.

I have a Onkyo TX-NR3009 receiver with Audyssey MultEQ XT32 with Sub EQ HT.
I leveled each sub individually to 80dB, prior to running the full eight position Audyssey calibration.

My subwoofers include two ported and two sealed models.
Audyssey did a magnificent job of blending all four subwoofers seamlessly.

The bass is clean, tight, powerful and oh so smooth over all the seating positions.

Your signature says you have the following subs:

SVS PB12-NSD Subwoofer x 2
BIC America F12 Subwoofer x 2


Here is the SVS PB12 NSD:


Here's the BIC F12:


I see ports on both those subs. Which one is the "sealed" sub?
