That's correct Mashie, even with the Tier 1 version of Dirac Bass Management, which will be free, Dirac Live will manage the crossover replacing the AVR's one.
By using a dedicated channel it will time-align the sub to the main speakers and will compute and display in real-time the combined results of sub + mains at the crossover region of frequencies.
As a result, the user will be able to choose the crossover frequency that offers the best results.
For Tier 1 there is no guidance for which the best choices are, you will have to use your own knowledge for that.
Tier 2 instead will compute the best crossover frequency automatically and correct the combined response while tier 1 doesn't
Tier 2 works with the phase _and_ the magnitude to achieve a better summation, something that cannot be done manually in Tier 1.
Finally, Tier 3 will correct the respective interactions among multiple subs as well as their interactions with the speakers at the crossover frequency
