I run mismatched subs, the Lfm-1 ex and an old Mirage prestige S10. I like it. Going by ear, as I have no measuring tools, it smooths out the mid- bass along the entire couch and as I have them both nearfield flanking my couch, the tactile feel is increased as well. If I ever end up buying a second EX, I'll probably still keep the 10", and throw it somewhere in the back of the room, more closely following the Geddes approach.
Some members claim it can affect overall sound quality, but I haven't personally heard anything negative, again just going by ear. Sounds great and I get most of the positive aspects of a multiple sub setup. Just remember to play around with placement to get the best effect, use any EQ software you may have, etc. It took me awhile to properly dial them in so they sounded best.
