1030 / 8040 / SUB

Youngling Posts: 7 Join Date: 4/14/15 Recent Posts

I have my old 1030 still going strong but now and then feel they lack some low end. I use my ATH-M50 headphones to check sub but it doesn't exactly translate back to a bigger speaker system. However, I've been thinking of getting 8040 or perhaps just getting the smallest Gen Sub 7040 for my 1030?

Any experience to share on this would be appreciated.

I doubt anyone has tried our newest 7040 subwoofer with 1030, but there is no reason why you couldn't pair it with them. Obviously the speakers can play louder than the sub (max SPL), but unless you typically run them near clipping, it will nicely add at least an octave of LF extension. Please let us know your experiences should you decide to go forward with this combination!
