Dirac live miniDSP SHD issue, please help


Dec 16, 2023
Greetings and Merry Christmas!

Please help with an issue I have with Dirac live.

I use miniDSP SHD (featuring dirac live full) with 2 active monitors and a subwoofer.

At the dirac volume calibration tab the subwoofer is working together with only one of the channels but not with the other. (The volume of the 2 channels is different because of this.)

The speakers are connected to the SHD via XLR 1 and 2. I tried connecting the sub in two different ways: as stereo to RCA 1 and 2 and also as mono to RCA 1 only. The problem is the same both ways.

As per the SHD instructions I have linked the left and right channel and set the crossover to 80hz on both the speakers and the subwoofer. The subwoofer channel (or 2 channels when I use stereo) show the signal meter and the subwoofer is working.

No matter what I try, at the dirac volume calibration tab the sub is working with the second channel only.

Please help me out with this. Thank you!

Kind regards,

Anthony LoFi
