Bloated mudbass isn't bass, HTIB pleb
>>
>>51540569
The drawback of floorstanders is the assumption that directional bass is ideal. This simply isn't the case. Since people are generally unable to localize bass, the smoothest bass response is somewhere else separate from the speakers.

>>51540599
Except that your HTIB's flubby FR peak at 110Hz isn't "bass" and it's trivial for your brain to localize

Oh and another thing. That shitty 4th order bandpass fartbox with a 5" paper cone woofer isn't a subwoofer, despite what Bose wants you to believe.
>>
>>51540716
You know there are proper subwoofers out there with great bass response right?
>>
>>51540743
Certainly. And to use them properly you cross them over at a reasonable frequency, which is only possible when your mains have decent LF extension.

Doesn't really matter with HTIB though, which is why your "subwoofer" is perma-fixed to roll off at 120 Hz.
>>
>>51540766
Why do you keep assuming I have HTIB though? I don't.

thanks dude its not optimal and they do need to be restored, the subs have dry rotted and the ferrofluid from the tweeters has leaked but they still sound superb, im gonna worry about all that when I move out. They're KEF 104/2 from the 80s that were my dad's and he didn't touch them for years so I put them to use again. Once I get my own place I plan on giving them they're own room so i can do the math and get the most out of them. They still sound awesome and get the bitches wet so I'm good for now. They're getting driven by an also ancient Yamaha C-65 and M-65 amp & preamp. I listen to them almost everyday.

Nice speakers
Shame about the placement
>>
>>51540766
There are plenty of bookshelves that still have solid response at 50-60 hz, which is fine to cross a sub with.
Plus, a HTiB is always at least 5.1, so if you're going to try to make that argument, you'd want to pretend he has some shitty computer speakers with a shitty computer speaker sub.
>>
>>51541053
Speaker positioning one of the most important aspects.
If you live in the city, space is very tight, so even if you can squeeze in Floor standers, you could very well be better off with book shelves for extra positioning.
Not to mention that if you get a good sub, you'll still get good bass.
Better bass that if you just had floorstanders, as floorstanders can't properly use the .1 channel.

I've owned Behringer gear, and sorry m8, but it's Bose-tier crap.

We all make mistakes, just accept it, learn from it and move on.

Enjoy ur garbage brand sound shit.
Get some decent neutral genelecs or neumanns you faggot.
>>
>>51540599
The location of receiving the smoothest bass response simply depends on the dimensions of your room. A room corner along the same wall as the setup is a good starting point for a lfe/sub.

is $190 for 2 POLK MONITOR 70 II tower speakers a good deal?

I've got some mid-tier Optimus towers for my living room but they're nothing spectacular. Those I drive with an old solid state Kenwood KA-801 I restored last winter and attached to that is a free-standing 800 niggawatt subwoofer. Used to be gud but at one point the woofer was replaced with some sony xplod garbage and so it mostly sounds like grunty farts.

My parents had a really nice pair of vintage HPM-1100's sitting in storage but they tossed them before I could grab them when they were doing some spring cleaning. No, instead they kept only these Polk Audio vintage towers with blown double mids. Plus their cats tore up the covers and they have water damage so there is nothing of value there to restore.
