Mid-bass Management?

Audio theory, Setup and Chat - www.avsforum.com
Non-directional bass management is pretty well covered by modern receivers, but what about mid-bass management?

I see that a few people are using mid-bass modules with active crossovers.

My 4 subs do a good job at handling frequencies up to 200hz, so it seems wasteful to get more speakers.

The ideal thing would be to send 0-80hz to all 4 subs equally. It's non-directional, anyway, and this provides a much flatter frequency response. Lots of receivers do this part right.

In addition, it would be great to route 80-150hz from all channels to the subs, but mixed to preserve directionality, rather than the strange effect of having those frequencies coming from everywhere.

Are there any reasonably priced boxes (closer to $2k than $20k) out there that provide this degree of flexibility?

Perhaps a pre-amp with 4 sub outs and extra flexibility or perhaps some kind of loudspeaker management processor that could sit between a pre-amp and the power amps?
