Yeah, TRS or Speakon connectors, but it's not really that much of a hassle. I'm not that familiar with the Crowson amp, but the iNuke software
is pretty awesome. You can download it and check it out beforehand if you want.
I will be using sub2 output on the prepro then since its untouched. With the exception that LFE is 120hz and the subs are crossed at 100hz in the prepro. Then I would probably just use external amps xover to further filter the bass in case I want to use it for 50hz and lower only, etc. There are only 2 pegs on the minidsp so will make sense to use crowsons on its own output.
50hz is a good starting point for the Crowsons. I'm currently at 90hz, but I still mess with it every now and again.
I'm assuming I don't need to use REW for crowsons right? Since it doesn't make sounds (or does it?) and just vibrates it would just be tuned by feel by intensity and xover point only. And as far as delay, its prob not necessary if its the same delay as the furthest sub since I use delays in minidsp for the closer subs. So it should be almost plug and play in my case....hopefully!
No REW. You would use Vibsensor if you wanted to measure the effects of the MAs.
Ideally, the delay for the MAs should be "0" since they are essentially attached to the seating, and subsequently attached to your body. You can easily adjust this with the DSP in the iNuke amps.
Also, I probably would want variable vs fixed output....as in intensity rises when turning up main volume like the speakers and subs rather than keeping same fixed intensity. I want the transducers to feel/blend with the subs to feel like I got sub upgrade rather than feeling like I added something under the seats.....if that make sense.
Although I use a variable input, there are others here that use the fixed input from their Oppo players and they seem to like it just fine, it sort of acts like Dynamic EQ for the MAs (the iNuke amps have a built in, adjustable DEQ as well).
