The peak at 40 Hz is also an issue. What is causing that?

Do you know how...

I would measure sub+center, 15-300Hz, no smoothing. The combination of sub and center is critical for movie and TV viewing. You can measure the others as well--each provides a slightly different...

Run separately. Several users have implemented a second 88A already, so if you search this thread, you can read about their experiences. The MiniDSP forum also has a thread on this subject.

I am enjoying the show as well. I believe Sunday's show was episode five of an eight-episode season. Sorry to see it end so soon, and hope we will see a return.
