Yep, had this happen before
That is what ive been saying, what a bad feature to not have.
I agree with the conclusion. But I was under the impression that the bass overlap could be mitigated by setting the LPF in the LFE+Main mode to complement the rolloff of the mains, thus making a sort of splice to the subs at that point. Does not the 8801 support that? If not, that only doubly underscores the conclusion.
Well in the guy's case it would be beneficial to bump it back up to start with, even though it still has nothing to do with LFE+Main, they were two separate suggestions on my part
I will be doing this along with my preout measurements when I get my other mic back from dayton. My rundown will be:
-Measure Sub out and create a cal file showing low-end rolloff
-Measure L/R outs in Pure, direct, and stereo with and without any DSP
-Measure Audyssey and non Audyssey speaker responses
I will document all of this with overlays and separate graphs.
