That's not awful for those frequencies.

The subs do not need to be 19' away. When you use more than one, they should be distributed.

Why? Just turn it off.

What are you using for EQ? I am...

You will expire. Dirac told me that there are other projects for the home audio market that have precedence. Also, the DSP demands of Unison are much greater than for DL.

That has always been the bottleneck because the software is easily scaled while the hardware costs $$$. Same for the various Audyssey implementations.

It is not really either/or. RAID does what you say and it also makes for easy and efficient recovery. External back-up is essential whether or not one has a RAID NAS or not. So, if a drive fails...

No. There is probably no concern if you are 100% certain that no one will ever make the mistake of having both amps on at the same time. Do yourself a favor and get a switch.

Correct but that is not exactly what you said before: The load seen by the amplifier is different and the passive crossovers are no longer electrically connected so there can be no interaction.

I have no suggestions but I use the 8802a directly with its remote control and the search function is kind of lame there. I doubt any control app can fix that.

One might say that the depicted system was a serious, perhaps compulsive, effort to "go all the way." In doing so, one must make choices. Either an AT screen or a skewed soundstage (very noticeable...

Why would you think that the 805D3 is the top choice? Ideally, of course, one would use all 800D3s and nothing else except subs but even us crazies have limits (and wives).

Aside from components, your room needs a lot of acoustically absorbent materials and, probably, some bass traps. It looks to be quite hard and lively.
