You would use a single subwoofer/LFE output from your receiver as input 1 of the MiniDSP. Each subwoofer gets an output from the miniDSP. Using REW and a measurement mic (Umik-1 or the like), you...

IMHO, the best way to run multiple subs is with a MiniDSP 2x4HD fed from a single sub/lfe output. It's more work, but the results can be simply outstanding.

Got room all re-arranged. TN's up front at 1/4 & 3/4 positions, and VTF's on rear wall at 1/4 & 3/4 positions.

If you gain match them, then place them properly so the response sums, you'll need less gain on the 3.3, which will naturally reduce any chuff. Kevin may have some better suggestions, but I'm pretty...

Going to try TN's at 1/4 & 3/4 positions up front, and VTF's along rear wall at 1/4 & 3/4 positions to start with. TN's are easier to tuck behind the TV stand.

That is a smokin' price for the TN1220HO with the 500W amp! That is the price of the TN by itselft, and less than the cost of the amp. :eek:

The Elite 43TX lacks the auto-MCACC. Get an SPL meter from radio shack and a test disc like Avia and level match your speakers. This results in a much bigger and more coherent sound stage.
