Yeah, if you use the SLP, you don't really need a MiniDSP for now.

Nice to see the limiter is now separate from the power switch.

By the way, that's a lot of knobs and switches. The compact amp is much simpler.

Also, because the LFE channel measures 10dB higher, turning the REW signal from -12dBFS to -22dBFS for LFE will keep you from running sweeps too close to this sub's output limits especially down low....

If he can tame that 30hz peak (Audyssey would do it, or a MiniDSP) and with the sub distance tweak that response would be very respectable IMO.

It does appear that CC+sub can be improved at crossover region via sub distance tweak.

However, I would sort out any sub issues first, including the peak and the rattling.
