>not having at least one set of full size floor standing speakers in your home
Explain yourself, /g/
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.
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.
But I do, anon
2.0 for lyfe
All glory to DIY refoaming.
Dude, im gonna type as sober as possible, that honestly looks fcking pathetic and disgusting compared to my speakers. and im being one hundred percent serious. Sorry we dont listen on sht that was previously in a dumpster. you're a fuking joke dude, and im dead fuking serious. get a real family that uses real speakers, plays 24-bit van gelder remasterings and diana krall and david chesky and has a good fuking time, and has a million dollar house on the beach, im seriously.. dont ever post your fuking poverty speakers on these forums ever the fuk again bro, and by bro i mean never my bro, fuking phaggot
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.
dubs confirm new pasta
Do U <3 my speakers btw ^_^
Got the B&W CM9 Speakers +Center and Back. Can't complain.
I do though, they sound decent for their age. Need to get a sub one of these days to help them.
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.
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.
>behringer = bad
>behringer = bad dir the price you pay
so tell me,how is your new alto techno album going ob?
Oh wait your a flamig faggot nvm
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.
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.
