Someone commented on the bass in my system the other day saying "i can hear it all....", which I took as a complement "but it is quite" which shows what people are used to. So I turned up some dynamic baseline music and annoyed the neighbours.
That's why it's nice to have the output clean from the mains, then with a miniDSP in front of the sub, a config change from your phone can see you go from accurate bass to 1 second later more bass than you can shake a stick at if so desired
Works well for me with results confirmed by Mic measurements. My room is uniform and I sit centrally.
I enter main listening position distances. (You can get a good idea from a room mode calculator)
Required angle 30deg or whatever.
Then just adjust distance from speaker to back wall to show different graph.
Ive found the problem.. it's the room acoustics!!!
So today I moved my Concept 40s upstairs into the games room (approx 12 x 9 foot) and no booming bass.
I then moved my Monitor 200s from the games rooms to downstairs (27 x 12 foot) and put them in the same positions where the concept 40s were..and they sound horribly boomy..in fact even worse, the bass overpowers the vocals on bass heavy songs.
I then thought Id try my little jpw bookshelf/standmounters (same little 3.5 or 4 inch woofers as Kef cestra 1s) and the bass is perfect!
