it just kind of depends if you'll be redirecting bass from one or many speakers, if you will be piping lfe through them, how much eq you like, how loud you listen, and how much room gain you get.
LTD, thanks for chiming in man. I’m wanting these for side wall low extension modules for LFE only. If I add modules for my surrounds I think pro drivers that extend down to 40hz or so would be best for that endeavor but I’m not sure I’m approaching this the correct way for sure as the Altitude can do so so much that the possibilities are endless.
My thinking is just to keep the ULF extension cabinets/drivers/modules similar with high xmax drivers and will use a MiniDSP or similar unit to do a “whole sub system tune” with just one channel from the Altitude method. Apply the same filter across each sub treating them as a whole. I’m sure that method has a proper name but just seems like it would be the easiest way then use sealed pro modules under my LCRs and surrounds with the Trinnov. I could possibly split the output from the Trinnov to DSPs for them as well but I’m unsure about the proper way to go about that as I’ve read XLR Y-splitters do some funky things although I’ve used them with no issues.
I know there are units that act like a breakout box/switch panel for XLR cables but unsure if actually need to try that approach. I’m not using Quested amps on my surrounds so I need to use the altitude to keep them in check between their sub extension modules one way or another so would have to somehow use a DSP with them too if that makes sense.
Trinnov has announced the channel count upgrade unit but they haven’t released it or pricing so can’t speak if multiple DSPs would be feasible over upgrading to the huge channel count Altitude. But, I’m betting multiple DSPs would be better then treat each linked channel as a whole from one output of the Altitude.
Hope that explained everything.
