Committed to finally hook up my passive sub from eons ago to complement my 
powered sub as long as redoing whole AV area. The only place the sub can go is 
over 8ft closer than the powered sub.  That is 8msec and change time offset and 
back of the envelope calculation have the subs  fighting each other at imp't 
frequencies.  I stumbled into finding these minidsp's which look like an 
excellent answer but complex beasties with complex software requirements.  It 
would pay to be an engineer.  I have to get the more expensive HD version 
(minidsp HD 2X4)  which has longer delays and plays better with some 
amplifiers. It uses REW  (Room equalization wizard)  and apparently it is 
easier with asio drivers (might not work on win 10 all the time ) which I know 
ZERO about.  It seems the process is as much an art as a science and almost 
like learning Photoshop.   Looking for any comments before I jump into deep 
water.    I watched an hour tutorial on it.  Some of these people seem to 
require 120db 
 at 10Hz.  The person had 4 subs that weighed about 200 lbs apiece.  sheesh.  I 
just need to even out the response for more seating positions.  There are some 
nulls.  I am sure the placement isn't best, but the  aesthetic police do have 
their limits. So much for processing my daylily stacks until I get this sorted. 


How low can he go, Mike
