The difference in the sub response is most likely due to the fact that I was using the SVS AS-EQ1 prior to running ARC to correct my dual subs.
Since the sub is treated as one in ARC I don't think the AS-EQ1 would have any effect on that dip at 11khz.
But it does show what the Audyssey type of dual sub room correction can do. And, yes, I still think the next generation of Anthems should have multi-sub correction included in ARC.
I contacted Anthem tech with my charts and although they wouldn't admit that the mic was bad, they did admit that there had been problems with some mics and said I could order a new mic for $50.
Since I bought the D2v used, it wasn't covered under warrantee, even though the ARC unit was not used by the prior owner. Personally, I don't understand why someone would not use ARC, but it came unopened.
Unfortunately the $50 price was wrong. They cost $200. But $200 is a more realistic price. Just wish Anthem had replaced a mic that was obviously defective. But they didn't have to, and they didn't.
Just hope the new mic has been checked out properly and works correctly.
