neutro, yes currently the MBM-12 is hooked to one of the subs, but while experimenting I'm going try only using one AVR sub output (forget about SubEQ HT) and then run them independent out of the miniDSP. I'm also currently combining the crossovers and you suggest this might cause a dip, so now I will try leaving the subs crossovers off and only using the miniDSP crossovers to control each sub. The MBM-12 is great between 50-150Hz which is wide open/off, and I'll set the two main sub settings on the miniDSP to either 50 or 60Hz. The AVR I'll set to either 120 or 150Hz. I hope this make sense?
Thanks, I appreciate getting advise!
I found a chance to spend some time with this today. It sounds better than it ever has!The low end is tight and defined, very pleased!
Here are some of my settings.
Denon X4000 sub output 1 split to input 1 and 2 on miniDSP
miniDSP outputs 1,2,3 for my 3 subs.
Crossover switches on subs set to off/out
Subs 1 and 2 miniDSP crossover LPF set to 60Hz
Sub 3 (MBM-12) miniDSP crossover LPF set to 160Hz
AVR speaker crossovers set to 120Hz
AVR LFE mode set to 150Hz
First turned Audyssey off
I gain matched the subs and then one at a time ran REW to calculate filters independently for each sub.
Added each filter set to Parametric EQ Outputs 1,2, and 3
This is where I'm at. I have a couple of dips that I could probably fix by moving the subs around, which I was prepared to do but it sounds so good that I'm good for now.
Thanks for your help!
