Why would you want three subs? It's either two or four, don't you think? I know one wouldn't cut it for me any more.

yep, I thought about giving that a try again, however, you can't use Audyssey using his methods..

There doesn't seem like much if a difference in the graphs going from 2 to 3 subs, in that link. With 3 subs there is a slight reduction in a null at about 45Hz and that is about it. This is just one example though, maybe another room would yield better results.
