I didn't have extra cable to get all 3 subs working so I hooked up the axiom nearfield with music using just my mains and crossed over at 80hz. Man...I feel like I'm a club and can feel the body thumping....can't even localize it.
My Y adapter and extra cable came in today from amazon so I will play with it. I'm hoping this all works out nicely. My rotel rsp1068 pre pro has 2 subouts but treated as one signal. Meaning delay affects both the same. And I do have phase switch between 0 and 180 as well. Remember I don't have minidsp or room correction so everything is pretty much manually using either test tones from prepro, avia disk, and disney wow disk. Here is summary how I'm gonna try to integrate the nearfield sub.
Currently all 5 speakers are set as 80db, Each svs sub is set as 85 db resulting in total of 88db on subs. I am going to calibrate nearfield while svs subs are off and maybe use 80db from MLP. So that will probably give me total of 90db from all 3 subs I'm assuming?
As far as delay....not sure where to set it but my LCR and SVS subs are 12 feet from my MLP and nearfield is 1 foot away and not really understand much how it works. I did play with different delays and my phase switch that switches to ony 0 and 180 and couldn't hear a diff....but that is without my SPL meter. Probably need to keep phase where spl is loudest during sub test tone but since it fires opposite svs subs I'm assuming phase 180 to avoid cancellation. So just doing best I can manually and doing everything within the rotel prepro for all bass management.
Do you guys have subs hotter than other speakers all all calibration? Like 10 db higher than all speakers? I understand all should be same as mains but being on concrete slab and huge open floor plan i feel I need to have it louder just to get more pressuration/feel of the subs.
Can't wait to calibrate it later during my free time between work. Will keep you guys posted.
Oh yeah, by the way I checked out the MBM Behringer....so cheap! But I wanna see if I can get this sub integrated at least so it doesn't collect dust......but having the axiom full range sub nearfield is kinda like having 3 normal subs in the room so it should give me more bass and smoother overall. Haven't really played with the feet, but I did see some square shape 1 inch flat rubber pads similar that may work, but again it may not. Does it have to be "isolation pad" or anything with rubber is isolation itself?
