Good point, if done full stop, all subs would really need to be of equal capability. But then, by definition, they'd not be balancing subs.
In my experience, most modal issues that need addressing don't exist down low in the subwoofer range. That said, if one had ample performance in the frequency range of interest, high passing below the modal range, it would seem you could get away with the somewhat lesser sub in this limited bandwidth role. I've not done this, with limited bandwidth, limited capability (relative to the main sub system)...so I can't speak first hand.
Procella's selling purpose built balancing subs, as I inquired about them and checked them out while at their Cedia dedicated sound room. Their mains are killer, I'm not so hot on their subs.
Continued good luck KG,...thanks for sharing....
edit,..didn't see the above posts with the same points...
