Not trying to threadjack, but how does one run different subs in this configuration?
Usually its frowned upon, correct?
I should probably look at the phase responses, or better yet model it lol
Yes running different subs is "usually" a bad idea.
This is because of the different phase response. So some freq might get louder while others will get quieter.
The BEST way is not to model them (the models only show show much and phase response of different models is not part of the model data-which is the MOST IMPORTANT part in this case), but rather to actually MEASURE them together.
That is what I did. I put them together, measured, looked at the phase response, the delay times inside the cabinets etc.
Once I saw that they would play well together side by side (with a little delay only), then I could put that information into the model for the room.
The reason for using the different subs in this cases was simply-that is what the provider owned.
So I came up with a configuration that provided a good coverage for the space.
The actual results (the stuff that REALLY matters) was stunned looks from everybody there about how much sound there was and how clean it was.
So-once again-IT DEPENDS. You can mix SOME subs, but you MUST do your "homework" ahead of time to be sure it will work.
