I believe this is also one of the( apart from other ) reasons the ability to use Full + Sub + Ebass exists as quoted by Classe in their FAQ session I posted the link on .
Apart from a +7 db notch at 38zHZ ,I also have a bass suck out of up to -13 DB between 52 and 68HZ ........by duplicating the bass , at present after many hours of alternatives, it is best it has ever has been in the room and displays great sensitivity , musicality and slam - factors which are difficult to obtain and hard to come by as we all know !!.
I have run the Auto EQ on the DB1's , however I am not a fan of Auto EQing and the fact that B&W have not designed their EQ software for two subs I have been told, so better left alone .
I might add that one sub is difficult enough to set up properly - two subs are a nightmare !!!
My dealer will measure my room and EQ the SSP800 manually in the near future and I can then revisit - at present though, all sounding great which is the object of the game ,notwithstanding how you get there .
