OK, here's from #59

Why would I want to put .5R in the left channel? How is that going to help anything?

Yes, those are FRS8's but I got it to "work" with Behringer P2031A's and B200's too. Very different speaker concepts. They simply differed in tonality but not in spatial properties. The important part is level, timing and spectrum of the reflections.

The near field subs are crossed in at 150Hz for the FRS8's.

I agree, but then it's no longer simple, easy to set up, and works well for everything.

There are two important benefits in doing so. First it maximises the signal separation between speaker feeds. Secondly it adds MS stereo side signal to side speakers.

It may help if you rewrite the speaker signals with help of MS stereo notations.

Well, but have you forget your own post #60 ? What can be simpler ?

It is simpler to wire the matrix of 0.5 than get summed center only

As it happens I actually own a Fostex M20RP MS stereo microphone . . . and even for recordings made with it things just. don't. work. that. way. Matrixing that works at the coincident microphone doesn't work with speakers 2 Meters apart. You really need to get past the simplistic "notations" and think about what really happens. If you can figure out how to make a "one speaker stereo" with driver spacing no greater than the microphone capsule spacing you might have something . . .

With more typical microphones and mixing it only gets worse . . .

Yes. I blame it on old age.

I don't think so. Care to elaborate?

No . . . the comment was more sarcastic than serious. MS matrixing only works when capsule/"driver" spacing is a fraction of a wavelength.
