adding multiple subwoofers

Thank you all for some of the advice I’ve received on the forum. As a result I've made changes to my room and speaker layout, added GIK room treatment and have Townshend bars. I am now considering adding 4 subwoofers after suggestions here and reading the Adding a Sub paper by Barry Ober.

Ober suggests adding a crossover like the dbx crossover sending low frequencies to the subs only and the rest to the main amp / speakers. I am considering going that route. I have a Primaluna EVO 400 and Klipsch Cornwall IVs. I am considering the SVS SB-1000 Pro subwoofers. SVS has received positive reviews here and I liked the price point  ($2000 for 4 subs) , the smaller footprint, lack of a port, and the ability to use the SVS app to make all the subwoofer adjustments the Ober paper suggests. Seems using the app could also be an easier way to make those adjustments?

There seems to be many ways to add multiple subs, such as the AK Swarm, for example. That would be more expensive and not clear on the specifics of setting them up or benefits. Have others gone my route? Is there a reason to go towards the Swarm or something else?

Thanks again for any help.

The crossover you are talking about is unnecessary and with your speakers actually counterproductive. The advantage of multiple subs is primarily from having multiple locations for bass. Adding four subs adds four new low bass locations. Crossing over from your mains removes two locations. This is what we call "own goal".

I’ve gone the whole route from none to one to four to now 5 subs. Was expecting you to have read myself, or Tim (noble100) or audiokinesis or perhaps even Toole or one of the white papers on subs. These would all say what I am saying.

The number of subs is so much more important than anything else that it frees you up to do four pretty much any way you want. The least expensive will be what I did, buy 4 cabs and drivers from and drive them with one or two Dayton SA-1000 sub amps. The Dayton has all the flexibility you want and with four 10" drivers will get excellent DBA for well under $3k, possibly under $2k if you catch a deal and paint instead of laminate. Mine are genuine Rosewood veneer and 2 amps (really only need one) and I was still under $3k. 

You could also get excellent results with a couple of the Tekton 4-10 subs. Or any combination of powered and active subs. That is one of the beautiful things about taking this approach, it is incredibly flexible and effective almost regardless of how you go about it.
If you split the signal to the Behringer DBX before going to the mains, it's a great idea. 

Split the signal, one pair goes into the DBX the other pair go to the main speaker amp (s), then to the mids/highs terminals on the speakers. (remove the jumpers)

Use 2 channels (left and right) to "bandpass"  the amp for the mains, onboard bass drivers. The other 4 DBX outputs can be individually programmed to do what you want. Each output requires a power amp (s). If it's a plate amp onboard your subs or passive subs with bass amps in a different location (s). 

The passive XO for the mids and highs onboard your Cornwall aren't affected. There is no added crap in the sound path. You relieve the amp of bass duty too. If it's a tube amp, you'll notice the difference right away.

Full blown OTF correction, at the seated position via laptop or the DBX console. I've been using DBX2496s for crossover design and bass management sense 2012. I don't use them for anything other than bass management in my sound system, 300hz and below. The newer units are dead quiet too.  300.00 usd (close). A good light PC sure help. I use a 39.00 silver clad, teflon weave. :-)

I also like Behringer's NU12K power amps. 3-400. A single amp will run a dozen 12" drivers over 110 db for a long long time. 

I'll put that design up against ANY BASS system design including software designed servo control.. I have 2 different types, of servo and use one. GRs. It's a good system. Nice looking, I like it..

This system is just as effective without OB design and cost 1/3 the price. Fancy can cost a lot of money.:-)

It has just as much cone control (overshoot) without someone's digital intervention and THEIR idea of what to control, you still have to write the code to make the dampening respond or NOT.

Measure away find out for yourself. The DBX has an onboard mic input, you can SEE your correction in you room in real time.. 

It's just plain cool..
Congratulations, your on the right track. The benefits of the new generation SVS subwoofers are that they include built in EQ/DSP. This allows for more individual bass EQ no matter where you place them. To get the most benefits, you need a way to visualize the bass response at the listening position. You can use any number of commercial products. I personally use an old Velodyne SMS1 sub EQ which produces bass test tones which allows me to see the bass response using a monitor. I can adjust each sub to smooth out the overall response. It’s easy for me to do now. It takes about 15 minutes to adjust 3-5 subs. 
As long as your goal isn't to make people's bowels quiver when you play Deadmau5, you should notice a great improvement with the subs mentioned.  I have 4 subs in my system and send the full signal to my mains.  

You didn't mention the size of your room.  You should take that into consideration.  You will for sure enhance your system with those 4 small subs regardless of the size of your room or speakers, but if you have a large room you might want to go bigger.
thanks for the repsonses. My room is 12 x 19 with 8 foot ceilings. Not looking for massive volume but an improvement in sound. From the responses I see there are many ways to approach this but everyone agrees that adding more subs is the way to go. I'll seach for the papers Miller Carbon mentionerd to gain more insight. The Barry Ober paper I mentioned has a link to purchase a test sound CD and detailed instructions on how to use and set up each sub. Was $18.

I'll try again got a little too descriptive last time.  What's it take to get bowl quivering bass?
