Definition: co-location of subs. Am I doing it right?

I have four Devestator subs on my front wall, I have in the past tried to measure and time my four subs / six subs in my room individually. This last time I decided to consider all four on my front wall as ONE sub even though the distance is about ten inchs different from the top subs to the bottom subs. I also consider my two rear subs as ONE sub as well even though they are in the back rear corners at equal distances to the MLP. This turned out very well for both sound quality and smoothing. BTW yes, I did have to add time between the fronts and the rears.

To be clear. My top front Devs are 138”, My bottom front Devs are 128”, and my rear subs are 128” from MLP.

I measure and time just like there are TWO subs in my room (front and rear) from my MLP. Should I be doing it differently?

I don't think 10 inches is going to matter, when you're talking wavelengths 14 ft (80hz) and greater.

IMO, of course.

mods, can we have a 'dislike' button ?
