Well, I tried it and I'm back to the single F112. It sounded boomier and sloppier with the two together. It also measured badly with the SMS-1 and I couldn't correct it due to the fact that I was controlling both subs with one SMS-1. I couldn't get the combined response to be flat.
How do you use the ARO with dual F112's? Do you do each one individually, or just use the Master ARO for both? After my experience with the F112/Earthquake, I'm a little concerned that one or even two bands of parametric EQ can do as good a job with two subs.
The only advantage the DD-18 has over the JL is the onboard SMS the Velo has. Performance wise, the JL is KING!
Notwithstanding my concern above, I'm not sure I would agree that the Velo's onboard EQ is all that much better than ARO. In my thread
from the other day, I showed how well the ARO flattened my room response -- and it did it quicker than a manual eq with the SMS-1.
