Genelec 1030As w/7050B sub

All:

I have been using a pair of Genelec 1030As as studio monitors and have recently added a 7050B sub to complement these. It certainly does provide lower frequency representation than the 1030As alone.

Unfortunately, I learned that the 7050B doesnt have a HPFto cross over the 1030As. In discussing with Genelec they advised that I would be suited best to engage the bass rolloff controls (it has values for -2, -4, -6 & -8). I have turned all four on.

I'm interested in any perspective on not only how best to set the controls (any/all) with this setup, but also thoughts on how well this setup will work and how i might understand and mitigate (as best as possible) any issues.

thanks in advance,
j

Hi,

Instead of turning all four on, I would suggest engaging only one at the time. You should try -6 dB or -8 dB setting and listen which one sounds better. Please also pay attention to the phase setting.
