This depends upon how the RAID is set up.

A standard Linux RAID1 setup does not give better reading
performance when reading large files than a single disk.

I don't know if the RAID system is cleaver enough to
save some seek time.

In order to get better read performance you'll have
to set it up as RAID10 with far copies.
