8040 w/ 7050 Or 8050

Youngling Viestejä: 2 Liittymispäivä: 17.5.2018 Viimeisimmät viestit

Hi! I'm from Spain so sorry for my english.

I've decided to upgrade my studio after years producing, i got a doubt between 8040 with a 7050 sub and a pair of 8050.

My room is about 3,3 long, 2,4 wide and 2,60 high. 

I've heard the 8050 in a shop and i was amazed with the sound, but I'm a little bit scared about the size of my room (it's getting treated, i've got 4 HOFA Basstraps and some Absorbers)

The 8040 was almost the same but im losing some low end sub bass (as i make primarily electronic music to be played over club systems) so I would need to add a sub (I've read than the 7050 is suited to work with 8020/8030) but i cant afford a higher sub at the moment.

What you think it's the best decision?

My room is like this https://ibb.co/csazFd

Thanks!

I can't spend 6000€ in a pair of monitors, that's why the 8351 aren't in the list.

I'm limited to 8050 Or 8040 w/ sub, so please, answer with my capabilites in mind.

well, for size of your room, 8040 is totally fine.

 

did you klick the link?

1037s are the bomb. i'd offer the guy 3500.- would be best deal ever.
