Well played "long game" acquisition!
(IIRC, seems like you've been angling for some DM/Salk speaker goodness for a while!)
Yeah, Salk has been on my radar for ages. I honestly didn't think it was something I'd ever acquire. I'm happy that I did and they're fantastic!

If you keep them longer than the 30-day return time, we'll teach you the secret Salk Owner Handshake.

In the meantime, try not to drool on them. And never let family or neighbors fondle them without first washing their hands.

Don't worry, I plan on keeping these speakers for 20 years too!

Yeah, that's my plan. If I can't get the app working to limit things to 200-250 Hz and under I'll just leave it off.

Edited to add: I was a little nervous when it came time to put the plinths on! And removing those magnets over the RAAL's had me a bit nervous too.
I'd just let it handle the sub and leave it at that. Since you have a mini, there might not even be a reason to mess with Audyssey other than Dynamic EQ.

Is there a way to only have it work with the sub for DEQ?

Not that I am aware of. If you turn on DEQ it does it's thing on all attached speakers. You could turn off DEQ and raise the sub levels or setup a personal EQ in the Audyssey app?

I guess for music there is the L/R bypass option, which I had forgotten about. o_O

FWIW, I have the system running with Audyssey curtained at the approx. Shroeder Frequency of my room... So no correction on anything above where I set that Curtain... 225Hz IIRC. If you are able to get the speakers to play nice with Aud, I found this to be a good way to do it. :)

Yeah, that was my intention, but the app is not working properly for me.

That's a pretty high standard to start at. I like the way the speaker coloring works with all the black gear but still screams wood grain. The first time I ever noticed the fit and finish of a 'box' was a small-ish Dunhill humidor that sold for around 3 grand. What was the uptick to fiddle back?

About $800 or so.

AVR: Denon AVR-X4000
Media devices: Nvidia Shield TV pro (2017) and a Sony Blu-Ray player
Speakers: Boston Acoustics Lynnfield VR 950 mains and VR 10 center; NHT Superzero 2.1 surrounds

SPAWN eh? Nice, one of the best movie OST compilations out there....
