GLM with dual subwoofers

Youngling Viestejä: 2 Liittymispäivä: 19.5.2021 Viimeisimmät viestit

A few questions considering my 2.2 genelec SAM setup. I have connected all the speakers and subs via AES/EBU cables through Yamaha WXC-50 coaxial output. 

I have the subwoofers placed about 0.5m behind my monitors and the distance between the subs is about 0.5m wider than the speakers so it's almost but not exactly a stereo setup for the subs. The whole system placement in the room is asymmetrical, closer to the other corner of the room.


1. Should the subwoofers ideally be playing both A and B channels (the default setting in GLM) or be playing either one paired to the same side monitor, L or R? Crossover is now set at 85Hz.

2. GLM sets both sub volumes at 0dB and the speakers at -0.3dB (probably because they are closer to me than the subs. Should the sub volumes be decreased -6dB on dual sub setup (saw some Genelec pdf that advices so). I do honestly enjoy the sub and bass I get straight after running GLM while listening but would like to know if this is not a "flat" response in LP because of the both subs actually playing A+B 6dB too loud (important for mixing purposes.)


Thank you!
