Best piece of synth gear yet this year...

Post by synthetic » Mon Apr 28, 2008 11:54 pm

...a subwoofer!!! I'm loving this thing. I found an unused JBL 12" powered sub at work (LSR12P) and "borrowed" it. It's working perfectly with my ADAM S2As. I used a Radio Shack meter and found out my room is pretty flat down to 30Hz and down 12dB at 25Hz! All part of my plan of course. :)

Sure, I'm gonna get evicted very soon, but I'll have fun until they find it.

:sb: :party:

On another note, I just ordered more MOTM parts. I hope to have an actual working synth voice sometime this summer! Sigh, it's slowly coming together...

hey somehow i missed this thread, but yeah +1 for subwoofers

I monitor through a pair of Tannoy Reveal Actives, which I *adore* for every single application I throw at them. I was always happy with the bass they produce.

A few months back I added a KRK RP10 and finally got to hear what I was missing from my synth.

INSANE DIFFERENCE, there's no going back.

Synths are so wonderful at throwing bass around :love:

just one? don't you need two to maintain the stereo effect.

not sure if that was a tongue-in-cheek or a serious question, so just in case...

no, bass frequencies are omni-directional - you only need one :party:

I won't be even considering a sub right now. I have a 10 square meter room for practically all my stuff - joys of being a student... I could afford to move to a proper flat at this point, but I'll rather live on budget until I graduate and spend the leftover money on food, gear and beer. :guinness:

Good thing my Dynaudios give me a pretty hefty low end already, and the bass management would be hell with a sub in a room like this. Not to mention the everlasting love of my neighbours...
