Hello,

7050B is not suitable with M030 because it is lacking the bass management filters. You should look at either 7040A or 7360A.

I not understand.
if the 7050B allows only the band above 85/120 Hz on the satellites, it does not matter what kind of filter, or not?

The 7050B sends full range signal from it's outputs, it's the M030 that doesn't have a highpass filter.

The official resellers in Hungary would need education.
The M030 will start 58 Hz to the frequencies offered under the 7050B.
Currently, an M-Audio BX10s I use, I would like to replace.
If you have been paying so much money, I want good decision. At home, I use it to listen to music.
Any suggestions?

For a good decision, we need more information, how big is your room, what SPL requirements do you have... The 7040A might be a good solution, but if you need more output, then the 7360 is your only option unless you can find a 7060 somewhere in a shop...

7050B does not have bass management filters (meaning 85 Hz highpass for the monitors) so it requires monitors with the said filters. 8020 and 8030 models have those filters from our current product portfolio.
