With my minidsp I put in a delay of 3.4ms on “sub 2” and that matches the real change in distance very close. Both subs are pointing in the same direction and “sub 2” is on the left side and “sub...

    This is my first time posting, although I've been a long time reader of the forums. I am rebuilding this sub in a new enclosure, with a new amp, since I did such a cheapo job last time I built it.
