Monitor speakers on top of subs

Recommended Posts

I think my setup is ideal for this, look at my profile photo to view it.  I use extremely heavy and rigid stands, each with an ATC SL20 passive on the top shelf, a stereo amp for vertical biamping on the lower shelf, then a Velodyne DD12+ on the base of the stand.  Every transducer is time-aligned by ear for my preferred listening position. (Write me for instructions.)  Each channel was positioned by rule of fifths wrt room depth and width. (It's a narrow room.)  For stands I have custom-built Sound Anchor ADJ2s, around $1.5k/pr and about 130 lbs each.  Each shelf mounts with 2 x 3/8" bolts, monstrously rigid.  I run my ATCs full range and supplement with the subs.  I roll the subs in at 55Hz, slope around 18dB/oct IIRC. 


Mac Mini 2012 with 2.3 GHz i5 CPU and 16GB RAM running newest OS10.9x and Signalyst HQ Player software (occasionally JRMC), ethernet to Cisco SG100-08 GigE switch, ethernet to SOtM SMS100 Miniserver in audio room, sending via short 1/2 meter AQ Cinnamon USB to Oppo 105D, feeding balanced outputs to 2x Bel Canto S300 amps which vertically biamp ATC SCM20SL speakers, 2x Velodyne DD12+ subs. Each side is mounted vertically on 3-tiered Sound Anchor ADJ2 stands: ATC (top), amp (middle), sub (bottom), Mogami, Koala, Nordost, Mosaic cables, split at the preamp outputs with splitters. All transducers are thoroughly and lovingly time aligned for the listening position.

can I convince anyone to not put anything on their subs?

 

and to use a swarm of subs?


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

@Ralf11 Jersey guy subs are ok(they're EVERYWHERE) but the one's at Rutt's Hut Clifton NJ with FRIED hot dogs are great or any Jersey Italian corner deli subs anywhere in north jersey especially on Bloomfield Ave or Broad Street

Remember in Jersey everything is legal, as long as you don't get caught

Another alternative could be to use an Anthem amp with its built in room correction... they can help lesser speakers bass quite a bit assuming the problem is

non linearity,  and not bass distortion
