You got it spot on right here:
OTOH, if you a just "sensing" that all the bass is coming from behind, that is a different issue and it won't be corrected with a crossover change.
It really doesn't bug me that much, I mostly just wanted to know why gain matching doesn't cause more localization issues - in my mind it should since the SPL of the closer subs will be higher at the MLP than the further subs - which Bill explained with the whole direct vs. reflected sound thing.
Like you said, I just get a sense
that there is more bass coming from the back of the room than from the front, but it still sounds really, really good.
What crossover are you currently using? Also, what subs are you using?
Currently at 80hz, 2 PSA XS15s (up front) 1 Velodyne F1500 (back, soon to be replaced by 1, maybe 2 PSA XS15s
Another thing you can try is changing the closer subs' Distance setting.
No dice, m AVR doesn't do multiple subs.
