Perhaps this depends on which active path you go down?
Certainly with an analogue active filter, it would be difficult ... but my miniDSP unit (initially a 10x10HD) and now a nanoDIGI) enables me to store 4 configs and select one of them 'on the fly'.
So one config is "bass panels full range and subs off" - which is easy to compare against "bass panel / sub XO at 80Hz, 24dB L-R".
Yeah good point. The newer Minidsps are v flexible for sure. Those presets sound v handy. You could also try the first order HP either subs method mentioned above and compare to quickly to the others.
I'd probably still prefer to go down the HP PLLXO route with analogue active LP XOs though, but it's more work and no easy way to switch quickly to compare.
