@ dziemian,

Well there are indeed such box (e.g. Datasat/Trinnov/Thetadigital unit) but it's in a different market all together for the complexity level that they represent.
As already suggested in previous posts and that you've already figured out, there are already boxes here in our line up that you could combine to build such system. Maybe the 4x10 + DDRC-88A would be the way to go. Isn't your system stereo? Why not doing a DDRC-22D (general room correction for your L&R) that would feed a 4x10 (doing your 2way + 4subs). You then use the 4x10 to correctly build an active speaker that is correctly time aligned. Once done and dialed, you used the Dirac Live at the input section to do your room correction of the overall system.

Now that miniDSP has the 88BM plugin, doesn't it simplifies the OP question, meaning, using the 88A + 88BM as the active crossover / room correction?

Any drawback on using this approach?

Thank you for the link.

Is this the optimal way to address an active speaker configuration, i.e ?

1 - Apply DIRAC to normalize response.
2 - Add crossover
