Big systems - Little rooms
In a fairly small room (say a spare bedroom), two main issues arise:1. The bass response will typically have major peaks and dips largely due to the room modes being few and far apart (an inevitable consequence of the room being small); and2. The ... 
The 60 Ohm Speaker Tweak
Good idea.   I prefer the actual impedance compensation circuit, but a large value resistor in parallel with everything, as you describe, is a much simpler approach, and can probably make a worthwhile net improvement in speaker compatibility with ...

Why the fascination with subwoofers?
Hi @lewinskih01, you asked, "What is your point of view about time alignment of a SWARM or other DBA systems?"Imo time alignment is at best a secondary consideration in a distributed multi-sub system, from a perceptual standpoint. The ear has very...
