Not necessarily true, Alan. By carefully placing multiple subs, there can be a measurable flattening of the frequency response, both at the MLP, and over the wider area.

I have provided an example: AustinJerry's Set-Up

Don't you have music in movies you are watching? Sure it is true!

If we tell about acoustics when we tell about the distance we actually tell about the delay. As long as you have control on the delay you have control on the acoustic distance. The physical distance doesn't matter and with subs is usually differ from acoustical one. Up to 80Hz with 24db/oct slope (acoustical one again, electrical doesn't matter) works best.

The rules you quoted apply if you do not have decent bass management in your processor.

I'm aware Jerry, that's why I said "won't necessarily".

Since HD is only worried about a flat response at the MLP and isn't considering multiple subs at this time, I think we can safely forego any multiple sub scenario for now.
