Difference between MultEQ and 2EQ for full range speakers?

Hello,

I understand that a difference between MultiEQ and 2EQ is that 2EQ does not offer correction for the subwoofer. I am running full-range front L/R speakers without a subwoofer. Will 2EQ correct the bass frequencies from my main speakers?

And is the filter resolution for the front LCR speakers the same between the two systems?

Thanks!

    MultEQ has twice the resolution of 2EQ (that was designed to fit within the constraints of smaller processing chips). So, MultEQ will do a much better job correcting the low frequencies of the main speakers. MultEQ XT will do an even better job as it has 8 times higher resolution than MultEQ. You can see the full comparison here:

    What would be the Sound Equalizer Pro numbers on that chart ?

    The Sound Equalizer numbers are listed in the first column on the table here:

    It has the capability to run the highest resolution filters because we can use the entire processor in the stand-alone box.

    Chris,

    I do see the difference between MultEQ XT on the standalone Sound Equalizer vs. on an AVR. 

    But I was really meaning to ask whether there is some additional set of features, or higher resolution numbers, using the Professional, over and above the regular standalone Sound Equalizer ? 

    (And for that matter, same question about additional benefits of the Sub Equalizer, over and above the regular standalone Sound Equalizer ?)

    The Sound Equalizer requires the Audyssey Pro software and installation kit.  So, using the MultEQ Pro software gets you the resolutions listed in the table.  There is no other set of features enabled.

    The Sub Equalizer, on the other hand, offers the ability to blend two subs by first applying time and level compensation to them and then applying a single MultEQ filter to the acoustic sum of the two.  This feature is not available in the Sound Equalizer.
