Thanks again Big,
I was able to make it work for me! With the info you provided I made the connections using separate power amps, my setup has all separate power amps. I was able to dial-in delays for the second pair of side surrounds i set them to 7.5 ms, made gain adjustments to get level. The mini/box has two inputs and four outputs, you can set the delay for each of the four outputs individually of one another,also the volume for them.
The mini has eq.....g for all outputs, I did not do any as I wanted to hear things as they are with Audyssey's setup. The four outputs are tied together as follows, input 1 go's to outputs 1&2 and input 2 go's to output 3&4, essentially as a Y cable/device works pretty straight forward , at some other time I may play around with the mini's plug-in eq. The plug-in, advance 2, also lets you setup stereo crossovers Hi/Lo.i bypassed all the features I didn't use/ need. It definitely changes the dynamics of the second pair of side surrounds I can hear a wider sound that creates a more spacious feeling in my environment (HT) I am liking what I hear, they sounded very good without delay before as I used them. But now they are less obvious to where the sound is exactly, yet greater presence of ambience. The mini in box is the poor mans dsp over much more expensive dsp devices. I'm grateful that I found this thread and a few others around avs, there's one for subs in DIY and subs/trans.
