    As I understand it BFD automatically adjusts for a flat response when you have a calibrated mike hooked up to it and feed a little pink noise into the room. I also understand it has an adjustable subsonic filter. Has anyone here tried using it with a dipole subwoofer to get the 6dB/octave boost?

    No the DSP1124P doesn't have those functions. It has an 'Auto' function for supressing feedback. Also there is no subsonic filter, no mic input, nor are there 6db/octave slopes. This info is available in the downloadable manual
    The 'Auto Q' functions you describe are a part of the of the Behringer Ultra-Curve Pro DSP8024 ..... and my understanding is that unfortunately it isn't all that accurate.

    It should, however, be possible to get a reasonable approximation of the 6dB boost by manually setting filter points and adjusting the gain and Q of the filter.

    Check any of Anthony Gomez' posts and download his BFD program. It'll show you graphically what the filters do.
