How would you deal with dip issue around 80~120hz!?

Hello, I have done very first calibration with my 8330a pair with GLM 4.1 kit. I absolutely love how it improved the clarity (Checked with on and off switch)


One question here, I understand SAM system does not encourage to do additive EQing. My room is fairly small. 4.3m x 3.6m x 2.6m high.

I have slight -3dB dips around 80~120Hz which is very important area for mixing bass and kick.


How would you get this improved in the future if it was your case?

Any recommendation would be grateful. Shall I go for extra sub...? or room is too small to have a sub...?


Atm, I have 8330a without sub.

Other than the dips I love how it sounds.

Also really impressed how it still bangs low end without sub.

Dips are depending on the room dimensions & speakers placement. One or two subs will give you the chance to correct (in some degree) your problem. The reasons are:

- You can place the sub(s) and monitors in ideal positions. Check here: Subs perform better close to walls, while the monitors require some distance from the walls (and other things :) )

- The 8330s will have less "load" with the addition of the sub(s)
