Do I need to gain match two (different) subwoofers?
I have two subs: 1723 Subwoofer 1.5 (legacy) and 1723 Subwoofer 1S. To make them a bit more alike, I have plugged the 1.5 model.
They are both connected to a MiniDSP 2×4 HD, and I am now in the process to calibrate them. Almost all tutorial videos and HOWTOs agree that it’s important to gain match the subs. But my question is if that’s necessary for me? Can’t I just select “Ref level” on “Bass Level”? Will that make both subs have the same level/gain/bass, even if they are different in size and power?
(Match gain means that if I put both subs on the same position and orientation in the room, one after the other, they will have the same output-power)
