8331s with 7350A Subwoofer or 8341s with NO SUB

Youngling Viestejä: 0 Liittymispäivä: 21.9.2020 Viimeisimmät viestit

Hi Genelec Music Producers,

I produce EDM Music (Trance, Psytrance, House).

My room size is 3.8m (Length) x 3.1m (Width) x 2.7m (Height) = 53m3

Does any one have experience with any of these combos?

Should I go with:

Option 1: 2 x 8331s with 7350A Subwoofer (with GLM Kit)

Will 7350A Sub calibrate properly with the 8331s?

or

Option 2: 2 x 8341s (with GLM) 

I have already read this guide: https://www.genelec.com/correct-monitors

I just want personal opinions/expert mixing/mastering and technical opinions.

Regards,

Andrew

Out of personal experience, I'd rather go with 8330's + 7350 (which I have and chose to keep) than just the pair of 8341's (I had on loan for a while); I'm sure the 8331's will be excellent, if the single input is not a concern.

​​​​​​​You'll miss way too much of the lows without a sub, mixes might become bottom-heavy and/or unpredictable. The 7350 will most probably go flat down to 20 Hz when calibrated and is perfect for 2 x 833x's. With 8341's, you'd need a bigger sub to match the output, which would be the only reason to go with bigger monitors - with your room size, I wouldn't.
