How to use 2 different subs

Hi , I have a Paradigm X15 and SVS pc12 that i want to use together. Would I set the gain so I get 75db on both and then run audessy? I am using a 9.2 reciever.

For best results get identical subs.

The long answer is a long path, with a lot of disappointments and probably a failure at the end, you can buy a minidsp (or another magical device) and a calibrated microphone and pray like hell that those subs behave as they should.
You'll have to take measurements, set delays and filters, still the results may not be to liking, but better than no MINIDSP at all

It can be done, but it isn't going to work like you want without a MiniDSP, Umik-1, and REW.

Auddysey has fantastical claims of what it "can do" with multiple subs. I've yet to see said claims stand up to reality when measured with REW and a Umik-1.

REW, Umik-1, and MiniDSP 2x4HD will get them playing nicely together. But not without some effort on your part.

MiniDSP 2x4HD, UMIK-1, REW... The holy trinity for running multiple subs.

Espon 5050UB, 120" screen, AppleTV4k, Harmony Elite, Sony UBP-X700, Pioneer Elite VSX-LX504, Outlaw 7000x, MiniDSP 2x4HD, 2x HSU TN1220HO subs, 2x HSU VTF-15H Mk2 subs, Defintive Technology speakers: CLR2002 x3 for FR, C, FL; BP2x SR & SL; BP1.2x SBL & SBR; ProMonitor 800 x4 height speakers.

I would get a Umik-1, REW and Mini-DSP-HD you can try and blend them together.
