Has anyone tried adding in-wall subs in certain sections of the house (e.g. dining room) where there's in-ceiling or in-wall speakers?

I'll be getting the whole house audio controller soon but I'm not sure how to implement the sub if I want to add it to a room.

I find that when listening at low levels, the in-ceilings hardly pump out any low freq.

What in speakers are you using? What "whole house audio controller" are you getting and what are you currently using to drive your speakers.

Thanks for the response (and questions):):

Speakers: combination of builder-installed Eton speakers (ESWA 6550) + Emotiva speakers. I also see another pair or so of HTD speakers.

Audio controller: HTD's new system

Amp: currently Emotiva UPA-7s but will try the new HTD digital amps.

Sub: not necessarily IB but possibly the HTD in wall sub.

I have the older HTD advanced whole house system (6 zones, 3 sub-zones)

At least in the older version, there is no provision for separate sub-woofer out in the amp/controller. You can of course still connect speaker wires directly to an unpowered sub but need extra speaker wiring and need to follow specific instructions (on amp/sub) on how to do this.

I also have the built-in HTD in-ceiling speakers and they are pretty good for low-range. Don't really need the sub for casual listening.
