I wonder how much of this low bass is going to get through to the living room next door, if there is one.

Just so you know../.. Prior to my quitting the studio lark... , My Room, using SP Acoustics SP1's , at the mix position was within +/- 3dB from 18Hz to 18kHz, and only at -5 dB at 10 HZ and 20kHz .

with nary a port in sight.


for a low budget mix room , I was tolerably pleased with that.

;)

(okay the speakers were not exactly low budget )

The alleged bottom line on those TH rooms was "A Million quid per room"

Lord knows why any studio owner thought they'd ever recoup that kind of investment.

Thanks for all the help and advice, but I think I'm going to put this one to bed again.
Also, when thousands of pounds are talked about it always makes me come over all underwhelmed when listening to such equipment. I just haven't got the enthusiasm for all this that I used to have.

Then parking it definitely seems like a sensible idea!
One of the positives of this hobby/business is that, although the laws of physics don't change, the tools and devices to work around just come down in price. What's available in 10 years for £1k will doubtless blow the socks off what's available now and so on. (Certain local political hiccups aside).

Even if you park this, I'm still happy to bring the RL934Ks over - I would really like to hear how they perform with organ in a normal room. :thumbup:

I'm sort of, very happy with what I've got, because it was all free!
I could go out and blow £20,000 on a pair of monitors, but I'll be listening to them with different ears, ears that have Just blown £20,000! and I'll be trying to hear what's better than my current system and thinking was it worth it! This sort of stuff would have blown me away years ago, I'd be chomping at the but to get it all set-up, and spend my very last penny on it and eat beans for a year. But now it's.......yeeeaahhh? OK.....er.....right.
