It is all very room dependent. And of course the subs matter too. I am fortunate that I have a lot of good locations that the subs like in my room. Although a very large space (28 x 30 x 9) the subs like corner loading, nearfield of course and stacked up front. I had some peaks that needed to be addressed and the MiniDSP was able to take care of it for me. It is absolutely not required, but placement would be critical.
As for the time delay, when talking about the difference between the distance from mlp for the subs, most users would never hear a difference.
With two subs of different sizes or capabilities I would personally have the smaller one closer so as not to work it harder than necessary. But you will probably be limiting the performance of the larger sub if the smaller one cannot keep up
