Hmm well i managed to get a much more even response across the seats with the configuration you see in the pictures. At first the response was very similar to the 8 up front but then I played with the delay on the rear subs - which makes no sense to me since the rear subs are the same distance from me as the front subs so you would think the delay should be the same??
I tweaked the delay on the inuke (the inuke is powering the 2 rear subs, the CV has the front 4 on one channel and the 2 end tables on the other channel) while I kept moving the omnimic from seat to seat and the result that gave the most similar response from all seats was 10 feet of delay added to the rear subs. Like I said, this makes no sense to me.
I'm listening to some music, and it sounds much more even across the room, but I have a lot more placements I want to try.
This is the front row sweet spot compared to the middle of the couch on the second row, much closer than they were before. No eq or L/T at all so far.
The black is the sweet spot and red is the 2nd row couch
The sound from the main LP is nice, but not as good as before but like I said I haven't eq'd yet. Still, it is nice to get up and not get boomy bass as I move around the room. I think I can make it better it I find a new spot for the end table subs, they really aren't doing anything to the frequency response and I'm not getting a ton of tactile feel unless I face the drivers towards me and then the right side is exaggerated so that's no good.
this next comparison is from the sweet spot only, the black line is the response with all 8 subs up front like I had and the 2nd is how I have the subs now in the pics. Again, no eq or L/T in either graph. I don't like how I'm loosing a lot of db's in the teens with this new configuration, but that's the trade-off for smoother response throughout the room.
