Question - MiniDSP SHD & dual subwoofers

Dear All,

New to MiniDSP. Question. Can we integrate 2 subwoofers in a stereo setup using MiniDSP SHD? Their documentation & picture show only single sub integration.
It says " Finally, we’ve added a second pair of outputs and a suite of our powerful but user-friendly DSP audio tuning software - ten-band parametric EQ per channel, crossovers up to 48 dB/octave, compressor/limiter, and a 2x4 matrix mixer — for powerful audio system tuning in applications ranging from integrating a single subwoofer to a two-way active speaker."

Please help

with the SHD series you have 2 inputs and 4 outputs (6 outputs with SHD Power?).

you have complete freedom in assigning any of the two inputs (or both) to any of the 4 outputs. you can apply crossover filters, PEQ, delays, gain adjustments independently to any of the 4 outputs, everything goes except FIR filtering.

FIR taps, PEQ, delays and gain for the input channels are 'locked out' and are allocated by DIRAC room calibration.

However, if you want to use Dirac there are only two Dirac channels, so subs would have to be corrected as if they are part of the mains. The NAD C658, in comparison, has four Dirac channels so subs can be corrected separately. Whether it makes a difference is anyone's guess ...

What’s the fundamental difference between miniDSP SHD & DDRC-24??
I understand SHD has streaming capability but if someone doesn’t use Tidal kinda service, does it make sense to just get DDRC-24?
