This is where i find the Omnimic package to be great, it is in real time.
I currently have REL Strata 5 x 2 and they are very musical.
I also have Velodyne DD15 + DD12 they are fantastic subs as well, very versatile.
The DD15 i find to be excellent in 2 channel music, with there PEQ it makes it even better.
Alot of people forget about placement, not always ideal but get best possible under conditions.
I find that there seems to be to much of, ha put the sub here and the PEQ will make it all better.
Sure, it's simply experimentation. It's nothing more than the most recent combo that yielded great results. When stating "placement strategy", I'm just saying the normal stuff, .. moving everything around until it hits. As I'm sure you realize, every room is different and yields differing results.
Ok yeah it also comes down to personal taste as well.
The Omnimic isn't a magic tool that does everything, just tells you what possibly you could do to improve the sound etc.
It all looks easy but there is a learning curve to all this to people who want to make the most of the Software.
Multiple subs, minimum of three, is a real strong tool for smooth and seamless blending of subs w/the mains. Also, the ability to align in time the subs is key, and varying the low pass of the subs is helpful too. Just as much control as possible, combined w/the ability to measure the resultant changes.
Absolutely dual or more is a advantage.
Matter of interest do you run them mono or stereo, i have tried both. The RELs are currently setup as stereo high level?
The particular set-up I was referring to (nothing special); my IB front-left (it ain't moving
), one sub front-right but not fully in the corner, .. pulled off both boundaries, and another sub about 5'-6' diagonally behind and to the side of my LP. As I said, since the rooms vary so much, the specifics aren't as important as the tools.
So much variation in sound in general.
I'm changing some seating around again soon, so I'll have to continue experimenting again.
Yep lucky i have a very flexible wife, all the test tones and changes.
Just recently bought a DSpeaker Antimode Dual Core 2.0 for my mains, very versatile.
It has alot of adjustments that people don't realize.
