Does it make sense to have the PA460 on two separate channels with separate settings at all?
Considering this mixed setup 2x PA460 and 1x UM18-22 (Full Marty), would I be better off with only 2x UM18-22, or even only 2x PA460?
I would have physical space for max three subwoofers, thus I came up with the idea 2x PA460 and 1x UM18-22 between them, the original plan however was to run 2x PA460 only. If I have two subs I can take them off the ground and position them higher between the mains (lowering room modes, probably?).
Your ideas are highly appreciated, thanks!
The other speakers in the setup are per channel the Miller & Kreisel S-150P/MPS-2510P powered monitors, they start at 80Hz -3dB. This is a dedicated smaller HT room with about 1800 cu ft in volume (12 x 22 x 6.5').
I thought that was what you might have had in mind. It depends if your listening position is close to equal distance from the PA460s and the room fairly symmetrical? Then I would think having the same signal/DSP to the PA460 would be fine. It is nice to have the extra flexibility to adjust everything separately so that is up to you and if there is a big difference in distance from your listening position to each PA460 then I would lean towards having them on separate channels so you could adjust distance/DSP etc.
I see different people prefer different things as some prefer to DSP all subs together and some prefer to do each individually and then do a final as all as one sub.
