that's not what I remember their main tech support man at the time (Curt?) told me when I got the DD18, maybe 6 yrs ago or so.
maybe Rob is not considering that standing wave/phase control is turned on by default in MCACC. I do know that those changed the response curve, so I ended up either turning them off or tweaking the curve some more. or maybe he's thinking it's like Audyssey. Interestingly, the SVS folks wrote the EQ1 manual recommending that if using a room correction system other than audyssey, run it 1st just like we've been saying Only D-Nice said do it the opposite (what Rob is now saying) & gave his reasons why but that system has much more complex level matching procedures, etc, which make it unique and really different than Velodyne's simple-by-comparison parametric EQ.
Unless I read & understand his reasoning, I stand by my own experiences which make more logical sense to me
