Hi, if I understand you correctly, you would set it up like a 2-way speaker. Page 24 of DDRC-88BM manual should help you get started :)

Hi John,
Yes , it works like 2 way speaker ! Thanks for advice ! So , One input split to 2 inputs ......................must reed well :laugh:


What about LFE Mgt in this configuration?
- LFT Mgt
?????
- ROUTING
FLin1 - Dirac1 / Dirac2
FRin1 - Dirac3 / Dirac4

- MIXER
Dirac1 - FLout
Dirac2 - FRout
Dirac3 - SUBout
Dirac4 - CTRout

- OUTPUTS
FLout - Xover HP / PEQ - peq1 House c. = Full range L
FRout - Xover LP / PEQ - peq1 House c. = SUB L
SUBout - Xover HP / PEQ - peq1 House c. = Full range R
CTRout - Xover LP / PEQ - peq1 House c. = SUB R



Is this OK ?????

LFE Mgt is for generating a mono subwoofer signal. So you don't need to use it.

You can do it the way you suggest there, but I think it would be better to use two Dirac Live channels. i.e. Do the routing in the second mixer.

Yes, you would route from 2 channels to 4 channels in the second mixer (not the first).

However, you could just try it the way you wrote above and see how it works. I would be interested to know :)

Hi,
OK like this, my system is simple, consisting of: CD player (Custom) - DA converter (custom) - Ambio4You - MiniDSP DDRC 88BM (Dirac Live) - TWO CHANNEL ___Amp PASS + full range Lowther EX4 TQWT (Costume) - Amp PROEL + SUB (costume)
The reason why I use channels 1/3/5/7 is simple, because they are physically located in the bottom row of input and output connectors.
After correspondence by e-mail with dear DevTeam, the system works except that can't see the value of Dirac values in user custom window, and I'm sure we will work it out soon.

What do You think is it OK ?

Best Regards

Željko

Hi, one thing I noticed is that the output channels are all inverted. It arguably doesn't matter but it was something I noticed.

Your target curves are ruler-flat. This will generally make a speaker sound bright. I guess I'd suggest using the default target and/or following the in-room measurement curve.

Hi John,
Good notice! I found that Xover LR 24 dB are in phase HP and LP but 180 deg. out of absolute phase and listening find that reversing all channels sound are more present and more front. If you can, try .I am interested in your experience.
I set curve flat and use EQ to make my house curve, still experimenting and must adopt REW, , step by step !!

Hi, I don't have much experience with experimenting with absolute phase, it's a very long way down the list of things to sort out for me :)
