First off, excellent videos sir, they have really been the best source of information for me in getting everything situated properly.
And speaking of coming a long way, I realized recently just how far i had come when I compared my setup from 3 years ago to what I'm using now. I had a single sub hooked up to my AVR, ran a 5.1 system, and barely knew how to use Audyssey - now I run 6 subs integrated into the system with a minidsp 2x4 hd, use a power amp for 5 of the base level channels in my 7.6.4 Atmos setup, and have multiple Gik panels/traps throughout it.
I know that 6 subs may seem excessive but they aren't that powerful (Bic F12's are rated for 150 watts RMS) and i have an oddly shaped room, so being able to place them at key points really helps to smooth it all out.
A friend of mine recently gave me 2 more identical subs so i'm keen to add them into the system as well and i wondered what minidsp unit would be the best for this task since my current 2x4 hd can't accurately accommodate that many subs.
I've teetered between a few of their units (the 4x10, the 8x8, and the C-DSP 6x8) but I'm leaning towards going with the 2x8 kit/box and running the 10x10 Crossover v1 plug-in with it so that i can still get the max delay of 15ms and the 48kHz sample rate.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this, and if it helps to give you better perspective, i had 2 prev. posts in this thread (post # 219 and 234) that gives some more information about the room.
