I hear a lot of people are not big fans of Subwoofers I made the mistake of beliving this as well. I suspect most experienced out of phased setups or placed in poor locations and/or poorly treated rooms A Proper Sub installation means the Sub is invisible but it adds to the whole package.

Well today one of the rooms (room B) has been completed with proper room treatments etc.. (purchased the home next door and converting to a studio, moving everything to that location) A pair of Genelec 8030C and a 7050B. Speakers and sub chosen for the room size.

Everyone Jaws drop when they hear samples of some underscores, sound effects etc.. It is like the speakers and subs do not exist period, Its practically perfection in my book and cannot get any better than this.  What I love is the sonic subltle buildup that adds tension to a scene, one scene one of the guys literally jumped from the seat it felt so real and unexpected.

I few of the guys are now looking to swap monitors out :)


Now in a few days a pair of 8341s coming for the other room along with its subwoofer as well. I am looking forward to see how this delivers the organised sounds to the listener. :)



Genelec is on point with what they offer, I am super impressed so far. Every room is going to be Genelec, I can see why people get Addicted to Genelec I am up to 4 pairs right now. And now 4 Subs will be joining the party.
