7071 overkill?

7071 overkill?

Hi,

Im producing loud edm, and back two years I had the 7060, which was fine for regular listening. But when cranked up, the subwoofer couldnt handle as much as my 8240, red ligt was blinking quit often, so I returned it. Now Im considering getting 7071 instead, but I'm too afraid if its too much? I saw what the recommended setups are, but will I find it annoying with that much bass?

important info is that I moved into a bigger studio, with 2,5m height, and personally, I really like that big festival bass, but I dont want that feel of pressure in my ears after 2-3hours session. Guess in the end its all about how much db I trim on the subwoofer?

There is no such thing as overkill. More power means only more headroom. You can easily adjust the level and bass roll-off so that it doesn't overpower your speakers. Go for it! :)
