I’m down to one Bag End 15” sub myself. I use 12’ 2ways for everything else.

I should have suggested to the OP to try placing the subs on one side and both mains together on the other but turned or fanned out to cover the room. It goes against any visual aesthetic... but it usually sounds better than subs as bottoms.

I try to solve everything with speaker placement and then just ring out EQ fast and simple.[/quote]

And this^ (though fanning out the subs should be unnecessary, single driver subs are omnidirectional*.

*The OP was asking about a QSC cardioid sub as an option, no personal experience but I like the idea in principle (but even my single "old school" EV sBA750 15" sub seems to keep up with a pair of QSC K12s without difficulty).[/quote]

I was talking about stacking L& R mains but fanning them out. Mains on one side, subs on another.

It's not what I would do as having the tops next to each other increases the likelihood of comb filtering (doesn't apply with subs).
