If you are going to use the SMS-1 it would be best to co-locate them and ensure each sub pair is equidistant from your LP. The SMS-1 does adjust phase, will not allow the flexibility of adjusting delay for varying distances. Play with it a bit and you should be able to get the response you are looking for.
I've had the SMS-1 for about 9 months now, and just discovered last month that one can adjust the "F" and basically move the bans anywhere you want to fine tune things. That made a WORLD of difference for me and really made me that much more of a fan of the SMS-1. I hope I don't end up regretting selling it...
IIRC Carp noticed some issues when using the SMS-1 in his chain with is dual SubM's, but I believe it had something to do with the SubM's being active. I don't have a AVR with XT32, but as I understand it, XT32 can adjust distance settings for two separate subs. If that is the case, it sounds like you should be able to place a pair in your rear corners, let XT32 do it's thing, then adjust all subs as one unit with the SMS-1. Make sense?
How close are you to firing them up?
