    Great podcast guys. I just wanted to point out that setting delays of each sub is still very important. You can’t always assume to use one delay for all of your subs. The results can change even at or below the crossover region. This is why systems like Audyssey and Harman’s SFM adjust sub level and delay BEFORE applying a global EQ to all subwoofers. I’ve been lobbying for years to get Receiver companies to offer independent sub outputs to adjust level/delay and thankfully Denon and Yamaha offer this on their high end features. I do wish more sub companies would offer adjustable group delay like Revel does, for those that are stuck with just one delay setting for their sub output.
