    I have the AT 450 system, including the subwoofer, 452PBM.
    I have a fairly large room at about 1500 cubic feet.
    I have the AT 452 placed in a corner close to the listening position which
    is about the best spot...I tried almost all.
    As I want more bass and the SVS shipping costs to Denmark are high, I just
    bought the servo-15 which I will get in next week with the x-30 controller.
    I would like to continue to use the AT sub if thats possible...but I dont
    know if its such a good idea to use 2 different subs.
    Is there anything I should be aware of ? Perhaps some different settings in
    the 2 subs ? Maybe setting the crossover at the servo lower then 80 hz ? Or
    should the crossover be the same for the two ?
    I have the Denon av1-se which is always in THX mode and sends all bass below
    80 hz to the sub. All speakers are set to small.
    I just need some guidance towards which things I should try and be aware of
    while using these 2 subs in my system.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks In advance

    I would just put the smaller unit on top of the the same corner of the room. It might take a little while to nail the phase adjustments...and be sure to re-calibrate.
    This should work very well for you...a solid 6-9dB increase in headroom across the board I think.
