GLM + 7370A + 2x 8350A + 8351B for full range L/C/R?

GLM + 7370A + 2x 8350A + 8351B for full range L/C/R?

When using SAM speakers for home theater, if I have 2x 8350A as my L/R and one 8351B as my Center channel, all 3 can be connected to a single 7370A subwoofer and with GLM can be treated as "full range" speakers correct? So then I can tell my processor to send the L/C/R signal with no low frequency cut-off to the 7370A because GLM would have already determined all the necessary crossover points between the 7370A and 8350A. Just making sure this is feasible.

yes.
from your post I take it you're using analog only.
crossover frequency is a fixed 85Hz in this case.

I don't think that's right. Distributed bass management works also with analog inputs, so keep the GLM network in play and cross over anywhere you like.

hmm, I think what you say is correct for a 7350, which only has distributed bass management.
7360 and above still have regular bass management, adjusting the filter of the analog x-over inside them would be hard afaik.
Instead of bringing our theories any of us three could run a test, but let me be the first to admit that I'm too lazy today.

Thanks all for chiming in! To answer lukester, Yes, analog signals t from the Trinnov Altitude 16 but I can choose to have Trinnov handle bass management like any processor would or let the GLM handle it and allow the Altitude 16 to send the L/C/R as full range signals to the 7370A. I guess I'm assuming that GLM would do a better job of deciding how much bass the 8350A/8351B can handle in the context of my room response.
