I have an Arc, 2 Subs and 2 one SL's. I understand that I can independently control the Subs volume in the S2 App, but what does the EQ function in the S2 App do to the Subs if you increase bass on the EQ? I'm confused as to why there is a volume control for the sub and a bass EQ. Does the bass EQ change the crossover frequency to the Subs? Thanks in advance for any and all answers!

Yes, SUB handles only the low bass. Humans are silly creatures. At first rush we tend to accept frequencies in the 120Hz range as ‘bass’. Low end equipment sometimes offers a “bass boost” feature that will take advantage of this by cutting frequencies below 80-90Hz and boosting 120Hz. This lowers the overall power requirement and fools the human into accepting that the bass has been “boosted”. Arc’s EQ control will cover the 120Hz range. SUB’s Level control operates at lower frequencies. Another matter is that, if the human is blindfolded, it is difficult to walk into a room and point to SUB’s location, but it is much easier to point to the mid bass of Arc.
