Maybe one of the DataSat users or dealers can chime in here. Can the RS20i do individual delays, levels and EQ for multiple subs? Or does it treat all of the subs as a single entity?
In my experience for proper multi-sub integration you'd have control over what each individual sub was doing. You can get around multi-sub time alignment issues sometimes
with the phase control (assuming your sub has one) but quite often you need digital delay to get everything to play nice. And if you are using a symmetrical front / rear sub arrangement you can often treat each sub pair (for example front pair, rear pair) as a unit.
With the Xilica you can individually control each sub. Levels, delays, parametric EQ, graphic EQ, phase shift (useful for matching up subs with different internal EQs), shelving filters, etc.
